Jajuan Wright is well-known around Charlotte Christian for multiple reasons, but two of them stick out: 1) He always says “LOL,” and 2) He hates when people touch his hair.   Another fun fact about Jajuan: One time he hit a bench and put a whole in his head…I’m not really sure what that’s about.   Jajuan is a Lifer, which means he has been at Charlotte Christian for 14 years. While here, the teacher...

Heating up in a game freshman year Terrelle catches the ball on the wing and pulls it… bottom of the net, as he runs away goggles and all, he pulls out a pretend arrow from his invisible quiver, pulling the arrow back he fires it at the student section as they all go bananas. This models Terrelle’s fun-loving, trash-talking demeanor that is often not noticed as most see him as the well-dressed, well-spoken, young ma...

Reid Mayers may be Charlotte Christian athletics’ biggest fan. He is a proud Lamb Loonie leader during football and basketball season. You can find him at every home game – and a lot of away games – in front of the crowd leading everyone in exciting chants. For 4 years, Reid has been a member on the varsity baseball team (he’s been named 2nd team All-Conference); thus, unfortunately, he cannot lead the baseball student se...

So, before you learn about this bright star of the senior class, let’s make sure you’ve got her name pronunciation correct.   Leila came to Charlotte Christian 5 years ago in the eighth grade. Since then, she’s become a favorite...

Matthew Faulkner is unique. How, you ask? There aren’t many athletes who manage to tear their ACL two football seasons in a row. Yes, that’s right. During sophomore year Matthew injured his right knee and as soon as he recovered the following year, he tore injured his right knee. Seeing Matthew in crutches became as common as seeing him in a blue baseball sweatshirt.   He arrived on campus mid-way through freshman...
