Chandler Bowl on Saturday, October 20, at CA!

October 15, 2018

Since 1990, Concord Academy and Pingree School have competed every fall for the Chandler Bowl, named for John Chandler, former head of school at Pingree. This fall CA hosts the event on Saturday, 10/20, with the first slate of games starting at 1:15. Competitions will be held in boys cross-country, girls cross-country, girls varsity field hockey, girls varsity volleyball, girls JV volleyball, girls varsity soccer, girls JV soccer, boys varsity soccer, and boys JV soccer. The school that wins five or more contests on the day earns the right to keep the Chandler Bowl on campus for the year. Starting in 2013, the event was renamed the Chandler Bowl for Changing Lives as the schools combined to raise funds for a charity, chosen by the host school. This year all proceeds from the sale of Chandler Bowl T-shirts will go to Samaritans, a crisis hotline. Please come out to cheer on CA’s fall teams as they compete to retain the bowl, having won the event for the past two years, and to support the vital work of the Samaritans. Go Green!
