    Cannon School doesn’t start a senior and only plays one in the regular rotation, but Cougars coach Che’ Roth said he is focused on this season and not thinking about how good his team could be down the road.

    “I know we have played a lot of young kids, and we played a lot of young kids last year, for a reason,” Roth said after his team, No. 6 in the Observer Sweet 16 defeated CISAA rival Charlotte Latin 79-64 Friday night at home. “It’s paid off, but we’re still young. And these kids want to compete a high level. We’re not just thinking about winning a league or a state championship, but we want to grow our program on a national level.”

  • Cannon School unveils time capsule from 1994

    Cannon School unveiled a chapter of school history with the opening of a time capsule that students and faculty had placed behind a cornerstone in 1994 — the year the school moved from 65 Union St. to the present campus on Poplar Tent Road.

    The time capsule contained an array of historical artifacts, including a letter from Headmaster Richard Snyder, a newspaper article about the campus groundbreaking, a copy of Cabarrus Academy Cougar News, a copy of the 1994 Flashback yearbook, a student-parent handbook, an annual report, and the thumbprints of every Cabarrus Academy student at the time.
