For the fourth year in a row, our kids were champs or runners-up in UIL Academics!!! 🏆🥈 Runner-up this year in a close meet that went down to the final 2 events out of 23. Overall title includes all 16 tested/written events, One-Act Play, and 6 speech/debate events.

⚠️ A few highlights:
-40+ different MHS kids competed (not including about 10 alternates), 25+ placed in at least one event, and 20+ of those made it to regionals
-~Each event has a lot of competitors, typically 24-48 competitors representing the best each school has to offer
-In non-speaking events, we placed (=got points) one or more kids in EVERY SINGLE EVENT! Unprecedented.
-1st or 2nd TEAM in 8 of 11 written/tested team events.
-Beat Horn & North in EVERY team event save one
-Results still TBD but first-time-ever entries in the Latino/African American history essay events. (Thanks, Ms. Harman).
-Regionals on 4-14 and we have kids with legit chances of making it to state UIL
