CHS Basketball Team Recognized at Recent Board Meeting

The Owl Basketball Team was recognized at the recent School Board Meeting for their outstanding season.

Chalmette High School’s Boys’ Basketball team had an exceptional year. The team competed in the state semi-finals and was District 8-5A Champions.

Coach Stockton said, “These young men worked very hard this year. While we did not make our ultimate goal of winning the state championship, we had a great season and our athletes worked really hard and we are proud of them for that.”

Individual players also had outstanding years.

Mitchell Robinson, senior Owl, made several elite teams including First Team All-State, First Team All- District, First Team All-Metro, and was one of 22 men on the McDonald’s All-American team. He is ranked ninth in the nation and is signed to Western Kentucky for next fall.

Glenshawn Amos made the First Team All-District and the All-Metro Team.

Carlton Campbell was also named to the All-District First Team.

And Josh Williams, an academic standout and athlete, made the Class 5A Academic All-State Basketball Team.

School Board President Diana Dysart congratulated the team and said, “It was a pleasure to watch the team this year. They truly worked together and made us all so proud.”

Reiterating those statements, Superintendent Doris Voitier added, “The young men on this team have carried on the long standing tradition of great basketball at Chalmette High School. As Mrs. Dysart mentioned, the lessons you have learned this year working together as a team will carry on with you as some of you might continue on to play college or professional basketball, or as you pursue your other ambitions off the court.”
