Commissioner’s Cup Awarded for Outstanding Community Service

[Charlotte, NC] Charlotte Catholic High School was the 4A Western Conference recipient of the 2014-15 Commissioners’ Cup, an award sponsored by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. CCHS was recognized for its contributions to Holy Angels in Belmont, NC which included many volunteer hours and donations from The Holy Angels Invitational which topped $9,200.

CCHS Athletic Director Kevin Christmas received the award on behalf of Charlotte Catholic at the awards presentation held in Raleigh Thursday, May 7, 2015. Principal Kurt Telford was also in attendance as the Athletic Association was awarded $1,000 in a stipend earmarked for the wrestling program.

This was the 6th Annual Holy Angels Invitational where the wrestling team from CCHS sponsored a wrestling tournament to benefit Holy Angels. Dubbed the “Battle at the Bo” because it is held at Bojangles Arena, this year’s tournament, held January 2-3, 2015, hosted 64 high school wrestling teams from the southeast and more than 1,000 wrestlers.

All proceeds benefit Holy Angels, a residential facility that provides care for people with intellectual developmental disabilities and delicate medical conditions.

The CCHS wresting team visited Holy Angels in November to decorate for Christmas and then set up, participated in, and worked during and after the tournament to ensure its smooth operations and success.
