  • HC Baseball Makes Community Impact

    Last weekend, the Houston Christian High School Baseball team took part in a wonderful community initiative. Coach Tom Gladney and students Will Jackson, Jeb Burkhart, Cooper Gregory, Jake Chenoweth, Barret Faterkowski, and Finn Duty volunteered as "buddies" for The Miracle League at Langham Creek YMCA. The Miracle League is a baseball league specifically for children with special needs, founded by Allan Wallace in 2012. 

    The Houston Christian student-athletes showed tremendous patience and care towards the players they worked with, bringing joy and smiles not only to the players but also to their appreciative parents. Every parent expressed their gratitude for the selfless efforts of the Houston Christian team after the games. 
    Allan Wallace, the League Founder, commented that our Mustangs displayed exceptional leadership qualities and respect in their interactions with the special needs children. He also noted that their contribution to the initiative was invaluable and has made a lasting impact on the children's lives. 

    Houston Christian High School's involvement in community service is a testament to the values and principles we instill in our students. The team's service to the community is greatly appreciated and truly a blessing. #GOMUSTANGS

Each lady shone in their specialty stroke.   Clark McCormick (Backstroke 33.21), Bekah Gerard (Breaststroke 35.84), Jordan Bany (Butterfly 36.16) Kendall Wallace (Freestyle 25.39) combined for a time of 2:10.60 and placed 3rd.

The time was only 1.47 seconds off the school record. 

    A special thanks to Matthew Thibault, Nate Sun, Micah Gordon, Rex Wiseman, Kendall Wallace, Jordan Bany, Clark McCormick, Bekah Gerard, and Victoria Lunam for all your hard work and dedication this season. Sorely missing from this year’s competition were teammates Sophomore Lucca Incerpi and Sophomore Ali Bruckner, who also had so amazing drops in times in their events this year but were unable to make this year’s competition. We hope they’ll be able to join us next year, and thank you for your hard work and dedication this season too.
