Students of Chester County have finished their first full week of school and are starting the school year right. Freshmen have learned their way around the school and grown accustomed to the changes that come with their secondary education. Sophomores and juniors are continuing life as usual, and seniors are stepping into new leadership positions. On top of what is happening inside the building, activities outside of it are amping up.
In the jamboree on Friday, the Chester County Eagles took on the Adamsville Cardinals in a fantastic showcase of talent. The freshman and Junior Varsity teams played one ten-minute quarter each and defeated the Cardinals both times. The Varsity game started worrisome with the Cardinals’ defensive stop and field goal, but the Eagles took little time to answer. With ESPN-worthy touchdowns thrown by Evan Schippers to Jaleo Smith and Chad Barham, the Eagles came out on top. After each of these touchdowns, the student section’s energy was high. Everyone was dressed in the decade of their choice, ranging from hippies to rockstars to athletes. After three straight victories, the team affirmed Chester County High School fans’ thoughts from last week’s scrimmage. As the Eagles head into their first regular season game against Trinity Christian Academy on Friday, we hope they will perform with the same determination and skill.
Apart from football, the girls’ soccer and volleyball teams also play two games each this week. The soccer team will take on USJ and Scotts Hill on Monday and Thursday. Volleyball has a loaded week, competing against Dyersburg, TCA and Scotts Hill on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The golf team plays a match on Thursday against Hardin County. We expect each of our teams to take home several wins this week and do the same in the coming weeks. Watch your Eagles play this week and be loud and proud in the stands!
