Cary Academy extends a warm welcome to a visiting exchange group from Henan Experimental High School, our sister school in Zhengzhou, China. The group of 16 students and one teacher arrived in Cary on February 9th for the start of the 12th exchange between our two schools. Head of School Mike Ehrhardt greeted the group with a brief reception on Monday morning in the Administration building lobby. The visiting students will participate in a variety of activities during their time at CA, all organized by exchange coordinator Trish Yu. The program includes class visits and tours of downtown Raleigh, Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill. Our friends from China will be with us until Feb. 15th, and then will go on to visit Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City before flying back to China. Cary Academy students will return the visit to Zhengzhou in late May/early June as part of our world language exchange program.

Helen Chen (50 Free), Charlotte Hook (100 Fly) and Isabella Barnette (100 Free) all won their individual events to go along with the Medley Relay team and the 200 Freestyle Relay (Amy Chang, Emma Zayas, Isabella Barnette and Charlotte Hook).
The boys title was their eighth in a row. The meet moved in CA's favor in the fourth event, the 50-yard Freestyle, where Josh Pullen, Will Newman and Constantin Zodl finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The CA boys would cruise to four individual champion titles (Pullen in the 50 Free, Ben Humphries 100 Free, Jack Todd 500 Free and Kevin Chen in the 100 Back). Additionally, Will Newman, Vincent Wang, Todd, Humphries and Pullen won the 200 Free and 400 Free relays.
