In a game versus its rival, Houston Christian High School’s varsity boys basketball team won the SPC championship by 14 points with the final score of 67-53 against Episcopal High School.

Houston Christian entered the championship tournament with more than 30 wins, and the coach, Ron Crandall, credits the team's success to its hard work and commitment to the small things.

“We’ve said all year that our goal this season is the daily pursuit of excellence, and if we focused on that mindset, the championship would take care of itself with the talent and skill on this team,” Crandall said. 

Houston Christian High School senior Jalon Clark was the high scorer of the game at 16 points, followed closely by junior Sahvir Wheeler at 15, and senior Miller Kopp at 13. Kopp is slated to play for Northwestern University upon graduation this May. Clark will play for Texas A&M Corpus Christi, and Wheeler's a verbal commit to A&M University. Senior Blake Foley will play for Wheaton College

“The boys did an amazing job all through the season. Their commitment and dedication to the game shows true leadership. Congratulations to Coach Crandall and go Mustangs!” said Dan Lee, Houston Christian’s Athletic Director.

'I had a group I ate lunch with called the "Lunch Bunch," which met in Mr. Lister's classroom. Mr. Lister liked to call us "the vultures." Mr. Lister was always available after school for discussion and has been a source of wisdom and advice in my important decisions and biblical questions. He constantly encouraged me to read the Word daily and research my questions to ensure I had the right conclusion and thought process. I learned the value of questioning and striving to be a lifelong learner. I hope to carry the wisdom of Mr. Lister into college and the years after."

"My Houston Christian education has given me so many opportunities far beyond what I could have ever thought or dreamed. The Fine Arts department allowed me to excel not only as a performer, but as a whole person. What stand out to me in my time at HC are the numerous teachers and peers I have met who truly care about me and the individual I am becoming inside and out of the classroom."

"My favorite aspect of HC was the opportunity to be so involved my senior year. I was the co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Student Council public relations officer, a Student Ambassador, a D-group leader, member of the Passport to Lead program, and a member of the Diversity Club. HC has taught me to always strive for what I want and never stop trying."
