Chatham Girls Volleyball had a very successful season this past fall.  They finished their season with a record of 17 and 8, and were able to co-win their conference, sending them into a vicious battle for the state championship.  In the first round of states, the Cougars faced off against Colt’s Neck at home.  Although Colt’s Neck was ranked 13th in the league and Chatham was ranked 14th, Chatham easily pulled off a victory, beating them in two games.  The team then moved on to play West Morris Central, a team that they had beat previously in the season at home.

The Cougar hockey team, one rich in tradition, seemingly has higher expectations for this season than last season. Headed by senior forward Jeff Haley, Chatham has loads of talent on all facets of the team. The Cougars had a rather impressive season last year, making the playoffs but getting eliminated in the third round of state tournament. The team projects to have an even better season this year.

Apparently, the only anxious moment of their 100th win was when one of the critical swimmers, Hannah Womer, a 10th grader, was running late to the meet. However, she made it just in time to help participate in the freestyle relay.

It all started with 8 seconds left in the 4th quarter, away at Randolph. Starting quarterback Alex Sands had gotten injured, so Junior Timmy Adams stepped up to take his place. The unforgettable scramble and pass to wide receiver Robbie Moskowitz sealed the deal on Chatham’s first win of the season. From that moment on, the Chatham Football team has had insane momentum.

In 2014, the Chatham High School baseball team finished with a record of 4-20. In 2015, the Cougars finished their campaign with the same record.

Many would say that this record speaks for itself; that the team did not improve and only experienced much of the same. This, however, is quite the opposite.

It's that time of the year again, time for the infamous March Madness. A time filled with triumph and misery. Each year, people fill out their brackets with hopes of near perfection, though as the tournament begins and ends, people's high hopes often fall into disappointment. However, in very lucky cases, people are actually somewhat happy with how their brackets turned out.

The start of the spring sports season at CHS was quite hectic due to the inclimate weather and lingering snow piles. Cougar and Haas fields were closed which displaced our boys and girls lacrosse teams, forcing many of our spring sports teams to share early practice time on the only clear turf field, Lum. After a few weeks, all the snow was gone and spring sports were back on track in Chatham.

Even though they seem to be the low men on the totem pole because they are the youngest, freshmen athletes have been making a big impact on different sports team each year. Last year, it was Scarlett Blydenburgh winning practically every match she could for girl's tennis, and Timmy Adams vamping up special teams for football, among others who made contributions to multiple different teams.
