University Interscholastic League Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt was selected as a recipient of the Texas Girls Coaches Association Citation of Merit Award given to him at the association’s annual summer convention.
Breithaupt, a coach and educator for 17 years before joining the UIL, is only the second recipient of the TGCA’s highest honor. The award is given to individuals who have gone above and beyond in contributing to the success of the TGCA and is only awarded on odd years when the association’s convention is held in Austin.
“There is no more deserving person than Dr. Charles Breithaupt,” TGCA Executive Director Sam Tipton said. “It’s been a great, great partnership, and we just wanted to give back a little to him for what he has done for girls athletics and the Texas Girls Coaches Association.”

“Our goal was to create a store that was in line with what a customer would expect of online shopping,” Technology Director Kelly McCollum said.

The University Interscholastic League’s video series, UIL NOW, has undergone some changes over the summer. In its previous format, the video focused on upcoming events and deadlines. The new format will feature several new sections and, a video will be published every two weeks, as opposed to every week.
In an effort to provide more detailed and timely content the videos will include sponsor spotlight, UIL flashback, activity spotlight, coaches corner and special Lone Star cup sections in various editions of UIL NOW.
