The Woodlands High School to be presented with UIL Lone Star Cup at Friday Sept. 14 football game
THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- The University Interscholastic League will honor Conroe The Woodlands High School on Friday, September 14 for its 2018 Conference 6A UIL Lone Star Cup victory.
The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during halftime of The Woodlands’ varsity football game against Conroe Oak Ridge at Woodforest Bank Stadium, which begins at 7:00 p.m.
“The UIL Lone Star Cup rewards the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”
With state championships in boys cross country, girls swimming & diving and boys track & field, a state runner-up in boys swimming & diving, and state bronze medalists in girls golf and volleyball, The Woodlands earned 117 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2017-18 school year. The Highlanders also earned points in UIL marching band, team tennis, football, girls and boys basketball, girls and boys soccer, softball and baseball. This is the second-consecutive UIL Lone Star Cup victory for The Woodlands High School, and the school’s seventh overall award.
The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to six high schools, one in each of the six UIL classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A), based on their team performance in district and state championships. The winning schools in each classification receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL. The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 school year.
The presentations for 2018 UIL Lone Star Cup winners Brock and Prosper will occur later this fall. Nazareth, Mason and Argyle were presented with their awards earlier this fall.
