STUDENTS LAUGH THEIR WAY TO THE COMEDYSPORTZ CHAMPIONSHIP
Posted 05/25/2018 10:07AM

For the first time in Houston’s ComedySportz history a private school has taken the ComedySportz City Championship!

In a season of 14 wins and 2 losses, Houston Christian High School kept a steady streak to the ComedySportz City Tournament in May where they clinched the Golden Tray of victory! The varsity team of 10 students won after games of Battle Scene Galactica and Fairytale Replay.

“I knew we could do it,” said Avery Minotti, rising junior and team member for two years. “We had such a great diverse group of people all working toward the same goal. It was exciting to be a part of and I can’t wait until next year. We’re going to be even better!”

The Houston Christian ComedySportz team began in the fall of 2011 with the hiring of Bobby Linhart, director of Theatre Arts at the school. Linhart credits this year’s success to how much the team wanted the win and the chemistry they built while practicing together.

“The students set a goal this year of making it to the city tournament. Their commitment and camaraderie only strengthened as they grew closer to their goal,” Linhart said. “The team loves being together and I think that showed on stage.”

ComedySportz is a worldwide organization that performs and teaches improv through games where teams score points based off of technique and audience participation.

'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."
