CA Captures Fifth Consecutive Chandler Bowl Title

On a spectacular October day, all 10 CA fall teams traveled north to battle rival Pingree in the annual Chandler Bowl for Changing Lives. CA has dominated the event in recent years, having completed a “four-peat” in fall 2019. The pandemic sidelined the event in 2020, so both schools were eager to engage once again. Since CA won in 2019, the Chameleons needed to earn five wins out of the 10 games in order to take home the bowl for the fifth straight year—no easy task! 

Pingree struck first with a win in the boys thirds soccer game and took a 1–0 lead. CA quickly jumped ahead off a sweep in the gym, with the varsity and JV volleyball teams comfortably winning. The cross-country races were the next to be notched with CA’s boys program cruising to victory and pushing the lead to 3–1. Pingree bounced back with a razor thin win in girls cross-country, followed by victories in field hockey and girls varsity and JV soccer. CA’s run of bowl victories was on the line, facing a 3–5 deficit in the overall tally. Pingree needed only one more win to regain the bowl.

Boys JV soccer muscled out a 1–0 victory to keep CA’s hopes alive at 4–5 games, and all eyes turned toward the only remaining game, boys varsity soccer, already deep into the second half and tied at 0–0. With the bowl on the line and ony 10 minutes remaining, CA scored the only goal of the content and held on to win both the game and the overall event, much to the delight of a large and boisterous fan section!

In addition to competing for the bowl, the two school communities combined to raise funds for the Innocence Project, the charitable cause chosen by Pingree this year.

CA looks forward to hosting the Chandler Bowl for Changing Lives in fall 2022 as part of the year long centennial celebration—with a “six-peat” on the line.

Go, Green!
