Coach Burch and the CHS Athletic Department hosted an Athletic Awards Night last night at the school. The Swim & Dive team was, once again, recognized for excellence with the following awards:
– Noland Deas received the Chivalry Scholarship. The CHS Athletic Booster Association awards one $2000 scholarship to an outstanding senior class male student/athlete and one $2000 scholarship to an outstanding senior class female student/athlete. The Seniors chosen are selected based on their academic and athletic achievements, as well as other extra-curricular activities at the high school or within the local community. We are all aware of Noland’s academic success at CHS and his swimming accomplishments both for CHS and for Swim Atlanta, but did you know that Noland received his Eagle Scout ranking within the Boy Scouts this year? Way to go, Noland!!
– Coach Slade Dale received CHS’s Outstanding Coach of the Year Award. This was Coach Dale’s second year heading up our Swim & Dive team. He led this year’s Girls’ team to a 3rd place finish in the State among all 6A schools, which was the highest team finish since 2006, and led the Boys’ team to a 7th place finish the State among all 6A schools, which was the men’s second Top 10 finish in the past 3 years. Thanks for all the early and long hours, Coach Slade. This is well-deserved!!
Congratulations Noland and Coach Dale!
