Last week was action-packed compared to the previous week, which seemed like a second Christmas Break.
After school was canceled on Monday and Tuesday, basketball started the week strong. The Eagles traveled to Lexington on the freshly melted roads and took home two comfortable victories against their rivals. These victories kept the Eagles and Eaglettes undefeated in their districts. Next, the McNairy Bobcats traveled to Chester County, hoping to take down the two dominant forces in the district, but they also fell short. Both the girls’ and boys’ teams were victorious. When it seemed that both teams had made it a habit to send their opponents home with losses on the same night, the Eagles and Eaglettes affirmed this common practice on Friday night, securing wins against both North Side teams. These three wins placed the Eagles in a comfortable position heading into this week.
After a full week of athletics, Chester County Students ended the week by participating in the annual Winter Ball. This year, the senior class incorporated a slight twist with a “Masquerade Ball” theme. Many wore masks for pictures and the event, making the dance unique. Students had a great time, and the senior class is very excited to host more events like this soon, such as Prom and Project Graduation!
Our teacher of the month for January is Brendan Clayton! On top of teaching many business-related classes, he has also started assistant coaching for the girls’ basketball team this year. He has been a great addition to the coaching staff because of his playing experience and excellent relationships with the team!
It has been a great week at Chester County High School, and we look forward to more!
