As we inch closer to the summer months, another year of sports competition will be in the books. Today, I want to go back six years and look at how the class of 2011 captured the state’s most prestigious award - the Lone Star Cup.
First off, for those that are not familiar with the award, here is a definition off of the UIL’s website: “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 will receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL. Honoring the best overall athletic and academic programs in Texas, the UIL Lone Star Cup is open to all UIL participant high schools.”
