Congratulations to the boys track & field team for their 2nd place finish, by 2 points, this weekend at the State Track & Field Championships. This is the highest team finish in school history.


Michael Bennett earned all-State honors, won the shot put on his last throw, and became the 1st Elk male track athlete to win an individual event since 1985. Benny McGowan finished in 7th place and earned all-State honors as well. Michael Bennett also took 2nd place in the discus throw. Michael Melchor took 3rd place in the 110 hurdles placing him 3rd all time at CHS. The 4x200 relay team of Oliver Sathoud, Michael Melchor, Matt Morgann & Ifeadi Odenigbo took 3rd place and set a new school record. Jon Overstreet took 7th place and earned all-State honors in the 300 Hurdles. All in all it was a fantastic cap to an outstanding season, one for the record books!

A reminder to all boys on the Track & Field Team - the banquet will be held this Wednesday, June 8th at 6 pm in the West Commons.
