K-12 Private Christian School in Northwest Houston, TX

Academic Team is State Runner-Up with State Champions in Math & Spanish

Despite many challenges and setbacks this year in regards to the TAPPS State Speech and Academic Meet, Cypress Christian School had the perseverance and tenacity to place third overall in the 4A category, losing to the second-place team by only five-tenths of a point. The top eight finalists in each category earn points for their school. The Academic Team was State Runner-Up, placing second in the division with two State Champions, Ana Sofia Navarro in Spanish and Ben Hensley in Math. Twelve of the 14 students who competed in the academic events placed in the top seven in their event.

Speech Team placed third with seven students earning points for their performances in Poetry, Oratory, Solo Acting and Duet Acting. Cypress Christian School finished the State Meet with 104.5 points, a very healthy score. The coaches could not be more proud of the talents and efforts displayed by everyone who competed. Go, Warriors!
