Cannon student-athletes earn honors

CONCORD — Eight Cannon School student-athletes who participated in fall sports earned all-conference or all-state honors.
Cannon’s varsity girls’ golf team capped their state championship-winning season with all-conference and all-state honors. The four team members were Annie and Kate Colom, freshman and sophomore sisters from Davidson; Taylor Bunten, a junior from Concord; and Anna Redding, a freshman from Concord.
Varsity players Blake Brewer, a junior kicker from Concord, and Jason Willix, a senior running back and strong safety also from Concord, were named to the all-state football team. The Cougars beat No. 3 seed Christ School in the first round of the state tournament to win Cannon’s first-ever varsity playoff game in just the program’s second season. Cannon lost in the semifinals to First Assembly.
Patrick Hunter, a freshman from Harrisburg, earned all-conference honors in cross country.
Eric Rossitch, a senior from Concord, was named all-conference in soccer.
Cannon School’s Cougars compete in the Charlotte Independent Schools Athletic Association and N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association.
Project Wrap-In
On Dec. 7, Cannon students gave underprivileged children in the Concord and Lake Norman areas a holiday season to remember.
Cannon students ages 4 to 18 donated more than 875 new, unused gifts for needy children their own age and gender during the school’s annual Project Wrap-In community service project. The students did all the wrapping in classrooms. Younger students paired with older buddies, and gave the presents to five charitable organizations that provide underprivileged children presents for the holidays.
Representatives from Ada Jenkins Center, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Salvation Army, Academic Learning Center and Communities in Schools of Cabarrus County were on hand to receive the gifts during a festive all-school assembly.
Project Wrap-In began four years ago as a small community service project envisioned by Bethany Corbin, a 2008 Cannon alumna who graduated from UNC Chapel Hill last May, and has grown into an event that students look forward to every December.
This year’s project was coordinated by Emily Anderson, a senior from Concord; Tyler Carson, a senior from Davidson; Tory Foster, a junior from Concord; Bruna Liborio, a junior from Concord; Lucie Randall, a senior from Troutman; Tias Sen, a junior from University City; Vanessa Vaccaro, a senior from Concord; and Haley Todd, the upper school service learning coordinator.
