Eagle News:


Congratulations to our Boys Lacrosse Team. They are the 3A Regional Champions. They will play for State Semi-Finals on Friday, May 18th at 8pm at Mt. Hebron High School. Go Eagles!

The girls tennis team finished 14-3 in the regular season while the boys team went undefeated for the third time in 4 years at 17-0. In the county tennis tournament held last week Centennial came in second just a half a point behind Marriotts Ridge. The eagles have county champions Ram Kotnana in the boys singles bracket and Peter Ho and Olivia Tsai in the mixed doubles bracket. Christopher Chen and Summer Shen also finished third in the mixed doubles bracket. The previously mentioned players will represent Centennial in the regional tournament with hopes of qualifying for the State Tennis Tournament. The performances by Lia LasCasas, Angela Kou, Shreya Vallimanalan, Annie Barnes, Abby Jackson, Kimi Hsiao, Vineeth Garnepudi, Keshav Ganapathy, Richard Huang, Robert Gao, and Philip Wang helped the eagles earn second place in the tournament.


The CHS Staff thanks A & G Management for the very thoughtful and generous breakfast goodies on Friday, May 11th.
