Super athletes!

Congratulations to Collin Megee, a 6th grade student at Cab. Collin was selected for the Delaware Olympic Development Program for soccer. The Delaware ODP team consists of 20 players selected from soccer clubs and schools statewide. The team represents Delaware in the 1997 age group in Regional soccer competition.

Cab Calloway's Brandon Ross broke the school record in the 200 meter dash this past Saturday at the Keith Burgess Invitational track meet at Lake Forest High School. The former (Charter school) record for the 200 meter dash - 22.0 seconds; the NEW school record - 21.85 seconds.
The school record had not been broken since 1999. Brandon's name will now go on the track and field wall of fame until someone else takes a crack at it.
Congratulations Brandon!
