After a season ending 52-6 loss against Centralia, Charger football finished the season with a record of 4-6. 

“A losing season is not something we are happy with, but I am proud of the accomplishments and the direction the program is headed in. We won more games this season than the last three seasons combined and won the first playoff game in 37 years, so those are definite positives,” said head football coach Jess Rutledge. 

“Now, we need to build upon that and take the next step which is to have a winning season and continue playoff success.”
