A Fight to Remember- CC vs. Skyridge Game
By Sydney Browning/Movies Editor
Corner Canyon Chargers: with an undefeated season, stared into the face of defeat on Thursday, November 9th. The Corner Canyon Chargers’ loss shocked everyone. Nobody saw it coming. We started out the game by crushing Skyridge, they were sure to be begging for mercy by halftime. But by the end of the game, fans and teammates alike all tried to process the unbelievable defeat.
Fans, in the midst of their struggle to digest this devastating information, have been having mixed emotions about this outcome. Some blame the team, some say it’s just bad luck, and that we’ll have better luck next year. Despite their different takes on this outcome, every CC fan in the crowd looked up at the scoreboard and realized that we lost. Aubree Dupree, a Sophomore at CCHS, gives her take on this situation. “I was devastated. Before Skyridge caught up to us, I was sure we would make it to championships. Losing by one point was very disappointing, but I’m glad we were at least able to make it to semifinals. I hope we can make it further next season!” Bri Nicholson, also a Sophomore at CCHS, says: “I thought we were really gonna win, like we got the cat in the bag. I wasn’t even concerned at halftime. But at the last minute of the 4th quarter when they scored, I was like...….we just lost the cat.”
Our football team had an amazing season, despite the unforeseen loss by only one point. The whole team worked as hard as they could, beating opponents left and right. Until those sad, few hours on November 9th. Coach Kjar told www.deseretnews.com, “It’s definitely tough. We had lots of opportunities. You feel for the kids. It’s hard,” and “It’s a good one to learn from too, there’s a lot of things we can be better at for sure. We didn’t make enough plays to take care of business today.” Even though we lost, We’re still extremely proud of our team.
In conclusion, here is a statement that summarizes this football season from the point of view of a team member, from Tai Gonzales; who is a Running Back on our football team. “This football season was an unreal experience. To develop with a group of guys for a whole 9 months and push each other to our limits so we could become a great team was one of the best times I’ve had in my life. Coming up to one game short of an undefeated and championship season was a hard feeling for sure, but in the end, I’m just glad that I got to be a part of something so great! I’m thankful to each one of my teammates and coaches for an amazing experience, one that I will cherish for the rest of my life!”

How YOU can get involved in politics:
By Emma Sidel/ Editor-in-Chief
In an interview with Speaker of the House Greg Hughes, he told me that he believes the most important legislative issues that high school students and soon-to-be constituents should be involved with are suicide rates in Utah (specifically teen suicide) and clean air. He stated that he would like to see more youth getting involved in these topics and providing insight to legislatures. Youth involvement is especially beneficial on the subject of teen suicide. Teenagers know how suicide in their community affects them better than anyone. They also know how legislatures can potentially reduce teen suicide rates in Utah. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, teen suicide rates in Utah have doubled between 2011 and 2015.
