On February 5, 2019, Kyra Wood (grade 10) became the youngest Centaur in school history to arrive at 1000 points in a 98-28 victory over McKinley. Kyra had 45 points, 8 rebounds, 8 steals and 8 blocks to lead the team. 8th grade sensation, Ava Purks, had 23 points and 5 assists. Freshman Kaori Segars grabbed 13 points and six steals. Sophomores McKenzie Alveri and Natalie Milne each added six pts. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this young Centaur team is that they play like a family, support each other and demonstrate great sportsmanship. CHS could not be more proud of this squad and excited for the good things to come!

Congrats to our boys varsity basketball team which captured the Yale Cup II Championship on February 13, 2019 with a win over The Arts Academy!

All-WNY Scholar Athletes: Fall 2018

A modified swim meeting will be held on Friday, December 14th from 3:15PM to 4:00PM for parents and students in grades 5-8.  The meeting will take place in the LGI Room.

Meet the coaches, find out about the competitive swimming program, fill out the registration paperwork and get answers to any questions you may have about the upcoming swim season.

The CHS modified swimming program is offered to students in grades 5-8.  It is a wonderful opportunity for swimmers to participate on a school team and improve upon their competitive swimming experience. Swimmers will work on stroke technique in each of the four swimming strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle.  They will also work on: racing starts, relay starts, flip turns and open turns.  Swimmers will have an opportunity to compete in swim meets with schools within the district.

Swimmers that are interested in participating in the program must be able to swim:

25 yards freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke or butterfly for grades 5 and 6

50 yards freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke or butterfly for grades 7 and 8

February 4th for grades 5 and 6
February 5th for grades 7 and 8

Registration is now open for the City Honors Middle School and High School Ski Clubs!* Please register as soon as possible while seats remain. Information and registration forms can be found at the links below.

Parent volunteers from CHS will be offering Middle Soccer to the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls again this Fall 2018! There will be 4 teams (dependent upon number of registrations):

-5/6 Girls Soccer Team
-5/6 Boys Soccer Team
-7/8 Girls Soccer Team
-7/8 Boys Soccer Team

The game schedule usually includes some co-ed and some non-co-ed games for all teams. The CoEd soccer games occur due to other school requests and what their population of their soccer team is.

The cost per play is $45. All fees go toward helping to pay for our insurance, officiating (increased by $1 from last year per contract agreement), first aid, general soccer supplies, and end of season party.   Checks can be made out to: “City Honors PTSCO”.

Middle School Soccer is a Club Sport at CHS, run entirely by parent volunteers. All are welcome regardless of experience. This is a fun, non-competitive program, with a concentration on ball skills, scrimmaging, team building, and sportsmanship. It is a great way to get a fresh air and exercise as well as make new friends (or become re-acquainted with old friends).

Each player is required to have the following:
-Soccer Ball (size 4 for 5/6 and size 5 for 7/8)
-Shin guards
-Black Soccer Socks (for games only- otherwise any color is fine for practice)
-Black Soccer Shorts (for games only)
-Water Bottle (this is important for practice and games- please make sure your child has one)

Game jerseys are provided and must be returned at the end of the season.   The game schedule usually includes some co-ed and some non-co-ed games for all teams.

There will be a Parent Meeting in September.  We are waiting for a room to be assigned to us, an email will go out to let everyone time and place. We will discuss the program as well as parents will sign waivers and submit the fee for participating in the soccer program.

Families are encouraged to register as soon as possible using the link below. To sign up, please submit your information on this form and email back to

We are looking for Coaches/Assistant Coaches for Grade 5/6 Boys and Girls level as well as Grade 7/8 Boys and Girls level. We are also looking for an assistant administrator to help run the program.  If you are able to help out in either capacity, please contact me direction at .

Thank you for your support and your time! We look forward to another awesome season!

Congrats to first year Head Baseball Coach Mike Moretta and his team which captured the Cornell Cup Championship earlier this week (week of May 14) by defeating Olmsted 3-0. Freshman Matt Cambria threw a three hitter over six innings and junior Colin Sullivan made a spectacular catch in right field to rib Olmsted of runs. The Centaurs also recently won the Cardinal O’Hara baseball tournament. This young squad has only three seniors. (information taken from Dr. Kresse’s 5/20/18 Hilltop Notes).


First year head baseball coach and CHS PE teacher, Mr. Moretta, has hit the ground running despite carrying only three seniors. Last weekend the Centaurs won the Cardinal O’Hara tournament including a late comeback win against rival Hutch Tech in the championship game. Volunteer assistant coaches Grandits and Barry have been crucial to guiding the young squad as well! (information taken from a 5/11/18 City Honors Facebook post).

It’s been a stellar year for the City Honors/Cardinal O’Hara Varsity and Junior Varsity Club Hockey Teams!

The JV team won the Blue Division this year with a record of 15-3. The team is headed to the JV State Tournament in Niagara Falls this weekend (March 2-4).

Three players were named JV Blue Division All Stars: Joseph Miranda, forward, and Quinn Mahoney, goaltender, were both named First Team All Stars and Sam Hollander, forward, was named a Second Team All Star. All three attend City Honors School.

Additionally, their coach, Pat Burke was named the JV Blue Division Coach of the Year.

The Varsity Team also did extremely well this year and they are headed to the Varsity State Tournament in Jamestown this weekend (March 2-4).

Jude Patrick Sabato (forward from City Honors) and Andrew Warner (pool goaltender for the varsity team) were named First team White Division All Stars and Sam Hamlett (forward from City Honors) was named a White Division Second Team All Star.

Finally, for the first time, a City Honors student was selected to receive the JT Conti Scholarship from the Western New York High School Club Hockey League. Sam Hamlett received this year’s Conti Award. It is presented to an outstanding senior athlete who plays on one of the 20 Varsity Club Hockey teams in the WNYHSCHL.
