UIL District Competition in Liberty Hill on March 25, 2017:
From Coach Bobby Leshikar:  It has been a pleasure working with these dedicated students and their coaches this year! As we begin preparations for the 2017/2018 UIL season next year, please continue to recommend students to compete in UIL Academic - it's a great way to encourage students strong in your subject area to go above and beyond the curriculum!
Congratulations to these students and their coaches for placing in the Top 6.
