4 The Hoot

Congrats to Athreya Arvind (Fifth Grade), for placing first at the Junior Doubles championship in the 2nd Annual John T. Pigg Doubles Badminton Tournament. The tournament was organized by the Nashville Badminton Association, and took place Sept. 29 and 30 in Hermitage, TN.

Athreya plays with partner Sandeep Baskar at the Chesterfield Athletic Club. His coach is Hull Wu.

CDS was thrilled to see two familiar faces in the Fall/Winter issue of St. Louis Family Magazine!

Alums Jason Zhou ('13) and Ryan Fogarty ('16) were featured in the magazine's "10 Rising Stars Under 18" list. Both attend John Burroughs School.

Congratulations to our own
