K-5 Holiday Concert

CTA-holiday-concert-webFourth Grade performing at the Christmas concert.

On December 19th CTA Elementary had a choir concert for an audience including the middle school, high school and parents.  The auditorium was packed with many family members who were there to support their children.   Each grade, kindergarten through fifth grade, chose two Christmas songs to perform.  The classes prepared diligently during the month of December by practicing their songs.  Lilley Smith, 3rd grade, said “I think all of the classes did a really good job.”   Jaden Sancho, 5th grader, “It was really good and it was fun getting to perform in front of an audience.  It took a lot of work preparing for the concert but it was worth it.“ Mrs. Honeysett, first grade teacher commented, “It was fun to see the kids in the holiday spirit.  It was neat to see all of the support from the parents who filled the house.  I look forward to having another holiday concert next year.”

CTA Boys battle, but fall to the Grizzlies of Grattan Academy

CTA-Basketball

In what has turned into a quite a rivalry over the years, the Chargers put forth their best effort of the year, but it wasn’t quite enough falling 52-46.  Some early misses coupled with some foul trouble to key players led to a slow start, but the Chargers fought through the adversity. “I thought the tempo change in the second quarter utilizing full court pressure and rotation of fresh bodies, coupled with depth, facilitated our comeback.  Our players are inexperienced but work hard in practice to learn their roles with our press and last night we saw some of the fruits from this labor,” explained Coach Bultman after the game.  Fighting is what they did, as they came all the way back and cut the lead to two points with a minute to go, but timely free throw shooting for the Grizzlies ultimately lead to the victory for Grattan.  “I feel we are on the brink of some really good basketball as we drastically reduced our unforced errors,” said Bultman. “With 7 players on the roster who have never played on a basketball team before, this season is a learning experience.  It is great to see the skills improve and see the players come together as a team.”

CTA received a strong game from Dylan Yarrington who led the way with 14 points, and only two turnovers.  Freshman Brandon Beck poured in a career high 15 points, and Derek Winters added 12 points while battling foul trouble. The Chargers have no games next week before they start a very busy stretch on January 28th when they battle the Quad City Mustangs.  The game will be played at the Fremont Rec Center and the game tips at 7:30.

CTA Ladies defeat Greenville Grattan Academy

CTA-girls-basketball-layup

The CTA girls basketball team traveled east to take on the Grattan Grizzlies and were able to pull away in the second half defeating them 36-22.  It seemed early that no team was going to pull away as the lead changed hands multiple times in the first half with the Lady Chargers settling in with a 13-11 lead.  Things changed quickly in the second half as the Chargers half court trap defense led to some steals and layups on the other end.  “The half court trap is something that we spend a lot of time on, and it was nice to see it have some success in this game.”  “We did a nice job of anticipating in the second half and were able to get some layups from that increased anticipation,” explained an excited Coach Hill after the game.

CTA-girls-basketballAlthough this was a complete team effort there were a couple of players who really stood out.  Aubrey Slocum and Nadine Merz were dominant on the boards with 9 rebounds each, and Alicia Beck led the charge offensively with 10 points.  “We have such great senior leadership on this team and it really showed through in this game.” Coach Hill said. “It is such a privilege to work with such talented and hardworking ladies, they come to practice every day and want to improve. It has been a real treat so far.”

The Lady Chargers are off next week but are back in action on January 28th when they head to Fremont to take on the Quad City Mustangs.  The game will be played at the Fremont Rec Center and the game tips at 6:00pm. Come cheer on the Chargers.
