Girls Soccer August 31 - CHS defeated Hillcrest Academy 1-0 in the last minute with a corner-kick goal. Olivia Huck recorded the assist to Madeline Harbott for the lone point and goalie Reese Swanson got the shut-out with six saves. "Madeline played outside mid for most of the game and forward at the end, and had great passing and runs. There was finesse in her shot," Coach Sarah Reese told the Times. "Kailee Magsam played with great pressure defensively and distribution to the corners. Aleah Bienek hadn't played defense for a while, but filled the role and distributed the ball well to the open spaces and corners. Olivia Huck had great corner kicks (9 all on the net and finished with the last one.) It was a great team win, we played with heart to the finish and got the goal in the last minute."

Girls Soccer September 2 - Fell to St. John's Prep 0-2. "Despite missing several players including the goalkeeper and having very limited subs and the constant rain, the team played well together," Coach Sarah Reese told the Times. "I was proud of them coming together and making the best of the situation. Most of the play was in the middle third. It was a highly winnable game, but we couldn't find the net. Cassie Solheim is a true team player willing to do anything for her team. Aleah Bienek, again played outside defense, was making incredibly great runs to cut off time and space. Defense as a whole played well together - talking, ball pressure, covering space together. JV won their game 4-2."

Football September 2 - Shut-out in their home season opener to Osakis 0-27. Ethan Boll led with 28 rushing yards, Jack Doda recorded 43 passing yards and George Widman had 18 receiving yards. The Pirates had two fumbles, three first-downs, four penalties and five punts. Coach Nate Lubarski told the Times after the game that their defense played well and held Osakis to 12-0 at halftime. "A lot of our young guys got their first varsity snaps tonight. We may take a few bumps early, but they'll gain valuable experience. In the special teams, Brooks Butt punted the ball exceptionally well, he was fantastic for us. On the defense line, Cade Deleon and Ethan Boll did well plus Ethan stepped in at safety and played well for us. Offensively, as the game went on, Jack Doda learned a lot as his first start at quarterback tonight. He got better as the game went on, moving in the pocket a little bit. He kind of grew up tonight as the game went on. Our backs, including Jacob Hesby and Hunter Knutson, ran hard. We did not have a bad center and the quarterback exchange which is odd with the weather so I was really happy with that. We need to play better and lower up front with our offensive line. Sometimes you just figure out the speed of the game and how aggressive varsity football really is, it takes time and you have to be thrown in the fire sometimes to figure it out. Defensively we gave up a couple of big lays which we don't like to do, but our defense for the most part played a pretty solid football game. We just need to be able to move the ball on offense."
Volleyball September 2 - Lost to Ada-Borup 0-3 (sets 13-25, 10-25, 11-25.) Coach Katie Englestad told the Times that Mallorie Sundeen led with four kills and one ace, Breanna Kressin led with 14 kids and Anna Funk also recorded an ace. JV and the C team also recorded losses both falling 0-2.
