On a stunning fall afternoon, CA athletic teams traveled north to Pingree intent on retaining the Chandler Bowl trophy for the fourth consecutive year. The formula for success was five combined wins earned by JV volleyball, boys varsity cross-country, boys JV soccer, boys varsity soccer, and girls varsity volleyball. The fourth win of the day, secured by a boys varsity soccer shut-out, guaranteed that the bowl would travel back to campus, as a tie defaults to the school that won the prior year. In the final contest of the day, though, the girls varsity volleyball team had a different outcome in mind. They stormed back from a 2-0 deficit to win a thrilling come-from-behind five-set victory, much to the delight of the large CA crowd, and secured the outright win for CA, 5-3. This event also served as an opportunity for the CA and Pingree communities to fundraise together toward a charitable cause, which this year was the Hurricane Dorian relief effort. Go Green!
