Cindi assisted in girls basketball, coaching 7th grade for 20 years and high school for 12; the teams won several championships including a state title. Coach Hansen also started Highland girls Pee Wee basketball and worked with summer tennis.
Coach Cindi Hansen has always loved teaching kids sports and believes sports teaches more than just a game. She is thankful to God for the opportunities to do what she loved.

Terry is honored to be a part of the Highland legacy and thankful to his coaches and teammates. “Champions wear red and gray. This is home.”

He was also a two-time All-District, All-Region, and All-State outfielder for the 1981 and 1982 district and regional champion and state runner-up Rebel baseball teams. He holds the HHS record of 62 consecutive stolen bases.
