Chatham High School’s varsity football team lost the last game of their season to William Campbell 51-21. The Generals have a potent offensive attack; their defense is not as proficient. William Campbell’s offense scored early, and scored often. Chatham was able to counter with a couple touchdowns by land, and another by air.

William Campbell had no answer for Parker Martin’s speed and agility. Martin scored three times, but had one touchdown called back due to a holding penalty. Unfortunately, fatigue took its toll on Chatham’s star running back. Hunter Furr scored Chatham’s other touchdown with a circus catch in the end zone that defied the laws of physics.

Nick Mitchell had seven pancake blocks. Mitchell amassed 47 pancakes this season. Jacob Willis had four pancake blocks, Ben Burton had two pancakes, and Bradley Giles had two pancakes.

The extra point team of Jacob Willis, Hunter Furr, and Lukas Saunders were three for three on the night.

Chatham’s defense allowed 51 points despite the valiant efforts of Zae Edmunds, Sam Faison, Bradley Giles, Trevor Crowder, Caleb Oakes, and Michael Gunnell. The weight room awaits.


Two members of the Cavalier volleyball team made the all-district teams while six others received honorable mention.

Senior setter Hali Criswell made the All Dogwood District first team. Criswell’s mastery of her position put her in the background much of the time. She was always where she was supposed to be when she was supposed to be there. The setter is doing a superlative job when she goes unnoticed while the hitters look exceptional. Hali Criswell is the best setter in the Dogwood District.

Outside hitter Taylor Haymore made the All Dogwood District second team. Haymore is a complete player who can serve, spike, and dig with equal proficiency. Despite an injury that sidelined her during part of the district schedule, Haymore is one of the best hitters in the Dogwood District.

Emerson Scollo, Sage Crider, Caroline Hughes, Jahna Waters, Taylor Neal, and Julie Jackson received honorable mention for their contributions to the Cavalier volleyball team.


Chatham’s cross-country teams traveled to Salem to compete in the 2A Region C championship meet. The boys placed ninth. Caleb Wright (29th place), Ethan Dunevant (32), and Brett Reynolds (35) competed in a field of 81 runners.

The girls placed seventh. Mayghan Presley (33), Caroline Broomell (36), and Summer Carlsen (44) competed in a field of 67 runners.

The fall sports teams must exit the stage in order to make room for the winter sports seasons.
