    Double the Fun… State Championship Parade!

    Everyone loves a parade – but it was twice as nice with double the fun as CSH celebrated TWO State Championship teams as the town closed the street and welcomed a caravan of firetrucks with sirens hailing the teams in tow! The girls’ and boys’ varsity lacrosse teams waved to the crowds, as the community lined the street with banners and noise makers to share their pride. The mile-long celebratory walk ended at the park across from the fire station, with bagpipes leading the charge.
