CHS Alum Gets First MLB Start

CHS Alum, Keegan Thompson made his first career major-league start on May 4th against the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

Students and staff at CHS and the Cullman Community as a whole have much to be proud in their hometown star.

The 2013 Cullman graduate tossed 3 2/3 innings for the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of their home doubleheader at Wrigley Field — the right-hander allowed no runs and two hits to go along with a pair of strikeouts and walks.

Good luck in the future Keegan.  We will be pulling for you! 

Update:  Keegan got his first major league hit Tuesday, May 19th.  Go Cubs!
