District Champs in Academic UIL!

The 55 point gap over the 2nd place team was peppered with both team and individual wins with the biggest boosts coming from Cross-Examination Debate, One Act Play, Speech, and Journalism. Cole advances 19 students to Regional Competition on April 17 at Davenport High School. (Note: Cross-Examination debate advanced to state earlier in March and One Act Play advanced to Bi-district over Spring Break.) The accomplishments of the students and their coaches in this year of tumult and change speaks to their resilience, positive attitudes, and dedication. Congratulations and good luck!
