The Woodlands again among UIL elite

The Woodlands finished second in the UIL’s Lone Star Cup standings, which are based on a school’s overall achievement in a variety of athletic and academic pursuits, for the third consecutive year.
It finished with 78 points, leaving it well behind three-time reigning Lone Star Cup champion Southlake Carroll.

“Any time that you can finish near the top of all the 5A schools in Texas, that says a lot about the type of kids you have, and the coaches and the community,” The Woodlands athletic coordinator Mark Schmid said.
“We’re extremely proud of that accomplishment.
“Obviously, we want to get back and be at the very top, like we were before Southlake Carroll won it, and that’s one of our goals as a school community, to win that, because it’s a reflection of a lot of things that happen within the school.”

The Highlanders claimed the Cup in 2006 and each year from 2008 to 2011, giving them five in six years. They were 37 points behind Carroll this year, but still finished top two for the ninth straight year. click HERE for complete story
