Sports[edit]

TCHS has repeatedly produced winning records in numerous sports throughout the years. Originally in Class 5A Division I league, it was moved down to Class 4A in 1996 due to lower enrollment. Even with its enrollment being between 3,000 and 4,000, the school has made several trips to the state playoffs in both divisions. It has two State Championships in football (1997 and 1999) as well as deep runs into the playoffs in Men's basketball, Men's and Women's Soccer, and even State Championships in Tennis, Swimming, and Track & Field. TCHS also has an award winning drill team, known as the Stingarettes, and a National Champion cheerleading squad who has brought home many honors since the school has opened.
