Things are going swimmingly for Christopher Matthews. The PGHS junior has been swimming since he was little, and he has been a part of the high school swim team since freshman year. Chris can certainly hold his own in the pool; the 200 yard individual medley is a personal favorite race of his. He plans to translate his love for swim to helping the community by serving as a lifeguard at the sports center this summer.

Not only is Chris lightning in the lane, he’s also a terrific trombonist. The band-member has played trombone for seven years straight — and for six years he has made the CCS Honor Band. This year, Chris made another achievement, as he was deemed CCS 1st chair. He also made All-State last year and is 2nd chair for the Monterey Jazz Festival High School All-Star Band. “I chose to take up music out of curiosity,” he says, “but I stayed for the sense of community I found.”

In addition, Chris has recently emerged as a competitive numberphile. A couple weeks ago, he won 2nd place for Calculus AB at Hartnell College’s 50th Annual Mathletics Competition. For his athleticism, musicality, and academic proficiency, Chris Matthews is our Breaker of the Week.
