All Sports Trophy
Every year the CHL gives away The All Sports Trophy or the CHL Cup to the school that has the best overall success in all of the sports sponsored by the CHL. There is a point system based on the number of teams in each sport. The champion gets a certain number of points and then 2nd place gets it's points and then 3rd place and so on. We add these points up at the end of the year to see who wins the CHL CUP!
Indian Hill won the CHL CUP for the 2022-2023 school year. It was a very close race between Indian Hill and Wyoming with Taylor finishing a very strong third.
Congratulations to Indian Hill, their Athletic Director, Brian Phelps, and the entire IH Coaching staff for this honor!!!
