JANUARY

Happy New Year to ALL in the CBHS Community. 2017 was a tremendous year for CBHS Athletics and we are working daily to make 2018 even better. The Holiday Break enabled our Wrestling and Basketball programs to travel the country, competing in National Tournaments, and representing our school very, very well.

January means indoor workouts for Spring sports and the occasional frigid session outdoors! Swimming continues their season and our dynamite Bowlers will compete in the State Championships on January 19-20 in Smyrna, TN. Wrestling and Basketball are in the thick of Region play. Come be a part of Friday night Home basketball games! It is the BEST atmosphere in town! JV games begin at 6:00, followed by Varsity action at 7:30. Arrive early if you want to get in, we will sell out early! Our campus will be packed on Saturday, January 27 as Brothers Wrestling host teams from all over the State in the Regional Duals in the Brothers Development Center. Action begins at 9:30 and continues throughout the day.

Fight the cold weather and enjoy a CBHS Sporting event during the month of January. Wear Purple, cheer loud, and watch our boys compete hard!

NOVEMBER

November in Memphis means the changing of the Seasons. Temperatures have dropped, and the sweaty days are replaced with crisp Fall temperatures. That also means that our Fall sports compete for their State Championships and Winter sports begin their official practices and compete in early season action.

Cross Country has trained for the past 5 months for their race on November 4 at Percy Warner State Park in Nashville. It is a huge event in the running community and fun to watch our guys run so hard! We wish them luck.

Football teamFootball is wrapping up a historic, undefeated regular season and claimed the 2017 Region Championship. Coach McDaniel, his staff, and players have been impressive with their physicality and toughness since August. They have earned a bye on November 3, will host a playoff game on November 10, and (hopefully) host the Semi-finals on November 17. Here is the bracket: http://tssaasports.com/event/bracket.cfm?id=20170109

The TSSAA D2AAA State Championship Game is Saturday, Dec. 2 in Cookeville, TN at 7:00 PM. We hope to be there and hope you will join us!

Bowling is in the first few weeks of their season. Coach Laura Madsen has a veteran team of talented bowlers who look to improve upon their State Runner-up finish last year. They compete on Tuesday and Thursdays at 3:30. Come out and catch a match. It is a lot of Fun!

Basketball and Wrestling began official practice on Monday, Oct. 30. Both teams have had a busy offseason, competing all summer on the regional and national level. Basketball will have to replace a special group of graduated seniors but Coach Luckett always has a competitive team that is hard to beat. Wrestling has a strong group of returning wrestlers who have put in time and work to have a special year.
