FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The University Interscholastic League will honor Brock High School on Friday, Oct. 16 for winning the 2015 UIL Lone Star Cup presented by State Farm. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place at halftime of Brock’s varsity football game against Bowie High School at Brock Eagle Stadium, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup honors the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “It takes contributions from every student, teacher and coach in all facets of UIL competition to win this outstanding award. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this incredible achievement.”

Brock High School set a school record with 75 UIL Lone Star Cup points after earning state championships in boys basketball, boys golf and tennis. The Eagles were also state finalists in volleyball, regional finalists in football and earned additional points in girls basketball, softball and baseball. The Conference 3A victory is Brock’s third overall (2009, 2010). UIL Director of Athletics Dr. Susan Elza will be on hand to make the presentation.

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 receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL. The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 season.

Presentations for 2015 UIL Lone Star Cup winner Austin Vandegrift will occur later this fall. Cross Plains, Shiner, Argyle and Southlake Carroll were presented with their awards earlier this fall.
