Defending the Title: Volleyball
Head Coach Becky Pendleton returns after leading the Lady Mustangs to their 9th consecutive trip to the State Finals and sending all 7 members of last year’s Senior Class off with college scholarships for volleyball.  
Defending the Title: Boys Golf
Longtime Head Golf Coach Steve Bell leads the 3rd program that has qualified for the State Championship each of the 24 years we have been eligible to participate.
King Grisanti leads a group aiming for our 2nd Boys Golf State Championship in school history.
 
Defending the Title: Boys Cross Country
First year Head Coach Clint Daniels takes over a hard working group led by the best returning local finisher from last year’s State Meet, Senior Chris Rayder. One of the first things that caught the attention of Coach Daniels was the commitment of the group. “The boys have worked very hard and have shown a great work ethic,” Coach Daniel said. 
Defending the Title: Girls Golf
Talent is important in any athletic endeavor and we have plenty of it returning for the 2016 Girls Golf season. Beginning with defending Individual State Champion Sophomore Jayna Choi, who tied the State Record shooting a 64 during the final round of competition while clinching our 1st State Championship in Girls Golf and 34th overall team title in school history.  
Defending the Title: Girls Soccer Preview
Head Coach David Wolff knows what it takes to win a championship, and he also knows what it takes to repeat. Our Girls Soccer team has been to the State Finals an impressive 11 consecutive years. But replacing the production and leadership lost from the 2015 State Championship team will be no easy task, no matter how talented the roster. 
Defending the Title: Girls Cross Country
First year Head Coach Clint Daniels inherits the core group from last year’s State Championship team. Led by Senior Michelle Myers, who finished 3rd in last year’s State Meet and Junior Ella Baran look to continue the staggering accomplishment.
 
Football Team to Increase Outreach Opportunities
The Houston High School Varsity Football team headed to feeder schools to give high fives and kind smiles to students on the first day of school.

Among some of the plans in the works for the team, nearly 90 students strong, include several community appearances this season.

HHS Pom offers a unique Friday Night Lights experience for K-8 students

TN Ready Testing Resources


Here are additional resources that we hope will help to foster greater understanding about TNReady: our 2016 TNReady Parent Guide and the supplemental Guide on TNReady Supports for Students with Disabilities. These guides walk through many of the questions we have heard from parents and outline the changes, particularly to the timing and structure, that we have made for the upcoming school year. The guides can be viewed online at TNReady.gov on our new TNReady Parent Resources page. We also have a one-page handout that explains at a high level the role of assessments, which is attached here. It is also included in the Parent Guide.
