WELCOME TO THE TEXAS STATE HOME OF HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY
High School Hockey in Texas has become Nationally recognized for its success. Over the past 6 seasons, teams from Texas have won THREE National Championships, Division II Frisco-2017 and Team Texas Girls in 2019 and 2022. Texas teams have also captured TWO Bronze Medals, Plano West in 2018 and Frisco in 2019. Hockey is growing at all levels and that growth has begun to reach the high school ranks. A steady increase in High School Hockey participation is anticipated over the next few seasons and TAHA will be ready to serve the new influx of players. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.

The Jesuit College Prep Rangers of Dallas defended their state title from 2022 with a hard fought 3-2 victory over the Strake Jesuit Crusaders of Houston. Trying to avenge an 11-1 loss to Dallas Jesuit in the round-robin, Strake claimed a 2-0 lead early in the first period before the Rangers were able to score to get within one. The game remained close with the Rangers scoring the only goal of the second period to tie the game at 2-2 entering the third. Both teams traded scoring chances in the third and with 3:44 left the Crusaders were penalized for holding. With 2:41 left, the Rangers scored on a deflection and the goal held up to bring another State Title to Jesuit. Congratulations to the Jesuit Rangers.
