A clean sweep Wednesday night as both Girls Soccer and Girls Volleyball go undefeated

Our Houston High athletes push themselves everyday as people and players, and this amazing work ethic is evident with every win they achieve. This truth was on full display as our girl’s soccer and volleyball teams both demolished the competition in their respective games on September 6th.  Let's start with a game recap of our nationally ranked girls soccer team.

The forever classy soccer team truly earned the namesake last night as they took on bitter rival, Collierville High School, in a match at Houston Middle. The girls decimated the Dragons with a score of 2-0, goals being succinctly scored by Emma Riales and Abbie Rushwin. Goalie Gabbie Dawe along with her crew of determined defenders: Megan Heintz, Sydney Somogyi, Adryan Darnell, Bailey Rose, Kate Handel, Molly Rose, Cara Young, and Maya Scott, also all succeeded in not allowing a single Dragon shot through.


The entire team performed with superb skill, and the entire Mustang Mob was proud to have witnessed such amazing athleticism.

Devoted HHS fan Regan Lee had this to exclaim about the team’s terrific win, “The Houston soccer team continues to improve and thrive on and off the field.”

We are so pleased with the girls’ success and cannot wait to see how they continue to triumph this season. To support, come watch them take on White Station next at home this Friday, September 8th, at 8pm

Following suit with the soccer team, our volleyball players also played fantastically. They beat the Bartlett Panthers, not once, but three times in a match, finishing with the scores of 25-16, 25-20, and 25-16. The seniors led on and off the court both in skill and character, with standouts Sarah Fleisher extinguishing the Bartlett defense with every rally and KaLea Davis passing with precision for point success.

The girls hope to continue in this winning streak as they blaze towards their tenth state competition in their game this Friday at 12:45 against Harding Academy. Senior player Rylie Jane Hern said, "We were nervous to play, having three girls out, however we adjusted well and were excited to win in three sets".

**HHS Students:  Admission is only $5, and with teacher permission, HHS students may miss their sixth and seventh period to go and support the team.
