The sectional championship game will be played Saturday, March 4th at 7:30 p.m. Good luck gentlemen!

The CHS Girls' Basketball team completed the most successful season in school history, finishing 22-3 and winning the Sectional Championship! The team set the school record for most wins in a season. Abby Parsons became the all-time career scoring leader and Sydney Warran became the school career assist leader for CHS. Congratulations to the entire team on a fantastic season!

The CHS Wrestling team finished an outstanding season that culminated in two senior wrestlers competing in the IHSAA State Finals. Logan Bickel - 120 pounds and Michael Hutchison - 160 pounds advanced through the sectional, regional, and semi-state meets to reach the state finals at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. This marked the first time in school history that two wrestlers advanced to the state finals in the same season. The team won the Indiana Crossroads Conference Championship!

The CHS Girls' and Boys' Swimming and Diving teams completed excellent seasons with the girls finishing 3rd and the boys finishing 4th in a very challenging sectional meet. Several school records were broken this year and many swimmers set their personal best times. Both teams won the Indiana Crossroads Conference Championship!

The CHS Cheerleading team finished as the runner-up last Saturday in the Indiana Crossroads Conference competition at Monrovia High School. Thank you ladies for your school spirit and enthusiastic cheering at all of our winter events!
