Our Students

Join our Crew! An open house will be held on September 4 at 6 p.m. at West Side Rowing Club, 1 Rotary Row, Buffalo..

We welcome dedicated athletes of any size and experience. If you’re bright tenacoius and loud, you might make a great coxswain.

Our team consists of novices, varsity rowers and state champions.

If you’re ready to practice hard and be on a great team, we have a boat for you!

  • We compete against high schools across New York, and Ontario at regattas in Buffalo, Rochester, Welland, St. Catherines and Saratoga Springs.
  • We face schools across the nation in Philadelphia each Fall.
  • We often qualify for nationals in New Jersey and Ohio.

Can’t make it to the open house? Email Patrick Lakamp, club president, at plakamp@gmail.com

After a record number of CHS students qualified for the State Championship for Speech & Debate this year in New York City, we had the most students ever to advance to Day 2 of the quarterfinals.
Highlights included:

  • In his 1st state tournament ever, freshmen Roman Rogalski finished among the top 24 debaters in his category.
  • Sophomore Ella Kaderbeck was also among the best to qualify for Day 2 in her speech category.
  • Joining Ella and advancing in Oral Interpretation was senior Alexis Marshall!
  • After going nearly perfect with a 4-1 debate record on Saturday, senior Gabby Merlo lost a close debate to the eventual state finalist on Day 2.

Congratulations to all 23 students who qualified to attend the state championships and to all the members of the team for an unprecedented year of success at tournaments throughout the year.

Thank you to our dedicated and fearless CHS Speech and Debate Team Advisor, Mr. Belge!

So many wonderful things are about to spring out of our Pelion Community Garden!

So proud of our MIddle School Mathletes who were recently named Buffalo champs.

Thank you Ms. Yeostros for a great season and exciting all of our CHS students about the joy of mathematics!

Congrats to Nicole Ndayishimiye, Evie Gardner and Kevin Ndayishimiye named 1st, 2nd, 3rd top scorers in the league respectively!

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!
