Fall efforts bring many top results

Our View

For those who look for results from Cedar Falls High School on the annual progress reports, we wonder if there’s room for us to brag a bit about some of the other efforts this fall that likely will not have a space for reporting on any government accountability spread sheets.

Just this last week, the cast of the Grimm Brothers Spectaculathon had the community rolling in laughter after the more than a 50 member cast brought its months of rehearsal to the stage. The Tiger football team made it to the Elite Eight of the state before succumbing to last year’s state champion, Iowa City High, and the volleyball team fell just one game shy of State after falling to Ankeny, the favorite to three-peat as state champions this year. The women’s swim team put in another Marcussen-led top effort after placing 11th at State on Saturday, and on that same day the cheerleaders earned fifth place among 4A schools in the state cheerleading contest.

In earlier season action, the men’s and women’s cross country ran with pride this season with the men placing third and the women in fifth at the state meet in Fort Dodge. The men’s golf swung into action this season, landing in eighth at State.

On Thanksgiving weekend, more than 30 All State CFHS music students perform … and don’t forget the Division I for marching band at State. The model UN has already had a number of CFHS top delegates, and big things are still coming from the art club, Harmony, our leadership groups, the student senate and more.

Last but not least, Cedar Falls High School is likely on its way to leading the Cedar Valley in its race toward another successful food drive this week.

It’s easy to see without looking too far that the Tiger spirit is as vibrant as ever, and the year is only one quarter of the way finished. Here’s to all the other good things still to come, and the proof that we have never been a school in need of any assistance.
