Athlete Spotlight: Jamir Henderson

Jamir Henderson is the starting point guard for the CCHS varsity basketball team. He was the captain of the BC High School freshman basketball team last year. The year before that, he played at CMS and led the team to an undefeated season and his travel basketball team to a league title. He is a quick and determined player who loves to drive to the hoop and score in the paint. Jamir is going to be a key player in the basketball team’s success this year and in years to come. What do you do in the point guard position? The point guard is usually the leader of the team, kind of like a quarterback in football. I know where everyone is, I distribute the ball, and I score when necessary. How are you...

Controversial call leads to Cathedral High Superbowl loss

December 22, 2011
By

Over Thanksgiving weekend, Bob Kraft hosted the MIAA’s top high school football teams at their Superbowl games. It was an exciting day for some, but many teams ended their season with huge disappointments. Nobody was more devastated by their loss than Cathedral High, in their controversial loss to Blue Hills. In the fourth quarter of the game, Cathedral quarterback Matthew Owens ran for a touchdown that would have sealed the game. On his way to the end zone, he was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct for raising his fist in the air in celebration. The penalty led to a turnover in possession, leading to a Cathedral loss. The penalty for the gesture left the losing team wondering if the referee’s decision should be challenged. The state association said it is impossible once the game is...

Sidney Crosby’s return: Concussions in sports

On January 1st, 2011, Sidney Crosby took to the ice with the rest of his Pittsburgh Penguin teammates in the annual NHL Winter Classic, a game played outside at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Midway through the second period, Crosby was blindsided by a hit and knocked out of the game.  The next day, he was back in the lineup against the Tampa Bay Lightning.  In the first period, he scored a goal and had an assist.  It seemed as if he had fully recovered from the hit he had taken the day before.  Late in the third period, Crosby skated into the corner to retrieve the puck and he was then hit head first into the boards.  That hit was on January 2, 2011.  On December 5th, nearly a year later, Crosby made his...

2011′s High Notes: Albums of the year

It’s that time of year again. For many, the month of December means an inundation of holiday advertisements, decorations, and those slightly reprehensible reindeer antlers on SUVs. Bah humbug. But for those of us who are asking for a sparkling new turntable instead of an iPhone 4S for the holidays, December means those ill-thought-out album of the year lists. You know the ones I’m talking about – publications like Q, NME, and Rolling Stone absolutely love reducing bands’ musical triumphs to a ranking on a top 50 list. Always averse to such distant categorization, I often find myself shaking my head at such lists. The concept of a numbered list has always baffled me. I admire artists like Sigur Rós for creating intricately layered musical soundscapes that are more like art exhibitions than albums,...

CCHS welcomes new French Club

Do you love French? Do you wish you had somewhere other than class to practice speaking the language? Do you want to delve deeper into different aspects of French culture? Along with CCHS’s beloved French teacher Rhonda Penaud as advisor, better known as Madame Penaud to her students, Jelle van der Hilst ’13 and Gabby Nguyen ’13 have recently created just the place for you: an all-new French Club here at the high school. Posters have already started going up for the club, where students can not only practice their French, but engage in all sorts of cultural activities. “Our mission is to provide a place outside of classes where those who want to speak French have the opportunity to do so,” says van der Hilst. “So it’s strongly suggested that those who attend...

Patriots end a perfect season with the Division 3 Super Bowl win

The Concord Carlisle Patriots have had a great season, and even that is an understatement. The Patriots are undefeated for the first time since 1978. They are 13-0 with an average a score of 35-8, a difference of 27 points. There has only been one game – against Weston – where they have let up more than two touchdowns. In six out of their eleven games, their defense has let up less than 10 points per game. During only one game have they scored less than 27 points, and that was a 13-0 shutout against Wayland. They beat the previously undefeated and 6th ranked Lincoln Sudbury 27-0. The Patriots are 12 points shy of 400, while their opponents haven’t scored 100 yet. The Patriots have three running backs that have collectively scored 33 touchdowns...

CCHS remembers David Prifti

On Tuesday, November 21, CCHS’s beloved photography teacher David Prifti passed away after a two-and-a-half-year struggle with pancreatic cancer. His passion for his art, his classes, and his students left a lasting impact on the CCHS community, and his memory will be treasured in years to come. Below is a brief article written by Mr. Badalament for the Carlisle Mosquito in remembrance of Mr. Prifti’s life: “David Prifti personified what it means to be student-centered. He held them all to high standards, but then in his own way, he found ways to support them regardless of their background. David truly cared about his students and he cared about their progress; we know that these are the essential characteristics of a world-class teacher. I always referred to David and his colleagues as ‘artists-in-residence’ because that’s...
