Thank you to all who voted us as the Fox 5 Team of the Week.  More information.

We hope you will join us this Friday as we take on Hillgrove for our Jr. Spartan and Sponsor Recognition football game.  Kickoff is at 7:30.  We encourage you to get there early as parking is still limited.  $5 stadium parking is available until filled.  Smyrna Elementary, the Baseball, Tiger, and Wills lots will be available without charge.  Please remember that tickets are $8 at the gate.   Cobb County Schools asked each school to remind parents and students that attendance at football games is an extension of the school day.  Dress code and behavior expectations will be enforced.  Students may be escorted off campus without a refund if obscene, violent, or therwise inappropriate behavior is observed.  Please make sure backpacks and other bags remain at home.  No backpacks allowed. No bandanas may be worn.  We will make students dispose of bandanas before entrance.  We appreciate your help with this,

First Home Football Game, 7:30pm, Friday, August 25

Are you ready for some football!? We hope you are planning to join us for what will be an incredible night of rivalry competition when South Cobb comes to OUR HOUSE tonight. We have declared an all out Black-Out in support of our Spartans. Our coaches and players have worked extremely hard in preparation for this home opener. Here are a few reminders that we hope will help to ensure a smooth night for all:

  • We are expecting a large crowd, so please come early. Parking will continue to be an issue as the gym is constructed. We will continue to charge $5 per car to park in the stadium lot. It is first come first served. Free parking is available at Smyrna Elementary and in the Wills, Tiger, and Baseball Lots. Be prepared to walk by the construction site, down the access road next to the 2000 building should you park in the Wills, Tiger, or baseball lot.
  • Please remember that the CCSD has increased ticket prices to $8 at the gates. All Sports Passes will be on sale tomorrow evening at the gate. Please ask if interested. The adult pass is $105, and the student pass is $80. These passes allow for entry into any regular season, athletic competition at Campbell High School. It is a tremendous value if you attend athletic events.
  • Please discuss behavioral expectations with students. We want all of our fans to enjoy the fun. We have to remember that these are family events. Appropriate language and behavior from our students is an expectation and requirement of Campbell Administration. Please also remember that we will be great hosts to our visiting teams. We want to treat them well, but send them home with a scoreboard loss!
  • We appreciate your help, and we are looking forward to an awesome night of football. We hope you will join us!

Lady Spartans Take 2nd Place at GHSA State Meet

2017 CHS State Track Champions

The Campbell Spartan Ladies Track & Field team just completed their most successful season ever.  The most state qualifiers in school history fought hard to a second place team finish in one of the closest and fiercest competitions the GHSA state track meet has seen.  The team was led by now four-time state champion Alexis Jones.  Alexis won the 100 meter hurdles AND the 300 meter hurdles this year and finished 2nd in the long jump by tie-breaker only, breaking a 7-year-old school record in the process.  Freshman Ashton Lindley finished a close 2nd to her teammate in the 300 meter hurdles and finished 3rd in the 400 meter dash, one of the most anticipated races in this year’s state meet as the top three finishers in that race are all ranked in the top ten NATIONALLY! Ashton also finished 4th in the long jump which is another of her many talents that will be on display for the next three years in GHSA Track & Field. Another talented Spartan, Rachel Robertson is now the state champion high jumper which was a surprise to some, but not to her coaches and teammates.  She also finished 3rd in the triple jump, breaking her own school record along the way, an intense competition of very talented ladies from CHS, McEachern and Mill Creek.  Going in to the last event of the meet, the 4×400 meter relay, the team scores were McEachern 63, Campbell 62, Westlake 61.  The lady Spartan relay team of Makylah Jones, Alexis Jones, Ashton Lindley, and Rickia Stafford fought hard to a 2nd place finish in the event, pushing them past McEachern for a 2nd place team finish, the highest finish in school history.  The other state qualifiers who made a huge impact on this season and will for a few seasons to come are Kirsten Eason, Ke’Lah Poleon, Lailah Malone, Raina Perry, Camille Trotman, and Makayla Jones.  It is a young and talented team with the only senior being Alexis Jones, a big loss for sure, but the future looks good.
