Boys Soccer Undefeated State Champs!

The men’s varsity soccer team closed a historic season with the title of Division 2 State Champions. The close 1-0 victory over Oliver Ames High School made them not only state champs, but proud possessors of the only undefeated season in CCHS men’s soccer history. The November 10th match was held in Marshfield, Massachusetts on a near freezing night. Despite cold conditions, the bleachers were full of fan support from both high schools. CCHS students journeyed on the fan bus to cheer on their peers, yelling encouragement from the stands.  After their victory, the team rushed the bleachers to celebrate with students and family. Congratulations to the coaches, captains and players on CCHS’s undefeated state championship team!
