- Varsity softball players Stephanie Gray and Kenzie Moyer had the idea early this season to host a Breast Cancer Awareness game. That idea developed into a two-game Breast Cancer Awareness series with Providence Day this season. In the first game of this series, in which both teams wore custom pink jerseys, Cannon topped host Providence Day by a score of 7-0 on Thursday night. In an effort fitting of their initiative, the offensive charge was led by Kenzie Moyer, who went 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s, and Stephanie Gray who had two hits and an RBI for the Cougars. Julie Harriss, Courtney Reynolds, and Emma Virtanen also contributed timely hits for Cannon. Julie Harriss caught an excellent game, and Ally Reynolds played great defense at second base making some very nice catches on pop-ups in shallow right field. On the mound, Kenzie Moyer recorded her 7th win of the season by pitching a complete game three-hit shutout and striking out 11 Charger batters. The highlight of the day was a tremendous after-game picnic hosted by Providence Day players, coaches, and parents on the beautiful PDS softball field on a gorgeous spring night. In an incredible showing of sportsmanship and fellowship, the teams joined in to celebrate the courage of those who fight breast cancer, and to raise awareness in an effort to find a cure for those who we all know suffer from this disease. The Cougars look forward to the second game of the series when PDS comes to Cannon on May 5.
- The middle school golf team hosted Charlotte Country Day School and ended up tieing with total scores of 157. Will Gordon was our medalist shooting 34. Anthony Perrino finished very strong with some late birdies to shoot 37. Noah Edmondson shot a 40 and Annie Collom finished with a 46. Uday Uppal shot 53 and is coming along with improving his swing. The match came down to a 15 foot put that just missed going in for one of the Charlotte Country Day players for a tie. We couldn’t get a play off in because of the late start but we are looking in to a rematch to decide the title.
