When I first came to CCHS, I was worried about the new surroundings and if I was going to make the golf team. Once I made the golf team, it made me less nervous and helped me settle into my new school. ...more

The CCHS boys cross-country team went undefeated throughout their season. The team went on to win the Dual County League (DCL) championships and placed second in Division 2 at the MIAA Eastern Mass. meet (Emass). ...more

Returning for the field hockey team were Ashley Bennett, Susan Goehring, Candice Oyer, and Taylor Lane, part of a tight knit group of eight seniors. With the addition of four more seniors, including Nicole Babine, Lindsay Smith, and Erin Moseley; six juniors, including Alison Robart and Kristina Coscia; as well as three sophomores, one of whom was Jazen Jacobellis, the team was well- rounded and prepared to be a powerhouse in the Dual County League. ...more

The 2000 Concord-Carlisle football team had another successful season, led by a number of strong seniors. Among the senior Carlisle members were captain Tim Moschini, wide out/defensive back Dave Irwin, quarterback Chris Bodnar, and tackle/defensive end Josh Davis. They all started for the team, helping the team finish one of the best and most exciting seasons in recent memory. Among the highlights of the season were two heart stopping last minute victories for the Patriots. When C-C squared away against (at the time) undefeated Westford, a possible league title was at stake. The Patriots (or Pats) battled with the Grey Ghosts of Westford, but found themselves down 10-7, with a minute and half left to go in the game. The Pats marched down the field and with forty seconds left on the clock, Bodnar hit Irwin for the winning touchdown. Westford blitzed two linebackers on the play and without the strong blocking of Davis and Moschini on the play, the pass would have never gotten off. ...more

From the first day of practice, the Concord-Carlisle Girls Cross-Country team was ready to overcome any obstacles they faced. With the returning varsity, some new upper classmen and talented freshmen, they were ready to run and run they did. For the first four meets, no one could beat this mighty team. But with the loss of Karen Song due to knee injuries, the girls were unable to maintain their perfect record. However, they kept their heads high and won the last two meets of the season to finish with a 6-2 record. ...more

The CCHS boys varsity soccer team reached their goal of qualifying for the state tournament again this year. It was their 16th consecutive season in which they qualified. ...more

This is the story of the cat who adopted us ten years ago. During an early summer thunderstorm, my husband and I found him bawling in a tree outside our apartment in Chestnut Hill, a scruffy orange-striped kitten more put out than petrified. I was a little surprised when he ventured down the tree at my urging. I say surprised because I claim no rapport with cats; I admire them but, since I am also allergic to them, I have learned that it is better to maintain a respectful distance. So when this fellow crawled down amid the thunder to sit calmly in my arms, I'll admit I felt a little flattered, but I was fully determined to offer him shelter only for the duration of the storm. But as this kitten strode into our apartment, curled up next to our long-suffering mutt Molly, and even allowed her to wash his ears in a motherly fashion, it dawned on me that, like it or not, we had been adopted by a cat. ...more
