Houston Volleyball Team Championship Reinstated

The Houston Tigers volleyball team lost to Stover in the state sectionals Thursday night, hours after they won a court battle.

The Missouri State High School Activities Association re-instated the team after a judge in Texas County ruled MSHSAA went too far in it’s ruling by taking away a district championship.

The three players took part in a benefit tournatment for breast cancer awareness.

MSHSAA says the girls violated a bylaw that forbids players to take part in an organized non school competition involving the same sport during the same season.

A number of community and state leaders have come out in support of the volleyball team.
