FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX — The University Interscholastic League will honor Mason High School on Friday, September 7 for its 2018 Conference 2A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during pregame of Mason’s varsity football game against Johnson City at R. Clinton Schulze Stadium, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup rewards the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”

With the most match wins at state tennis, a state runner-up finish in one-act play and a state semifinalist in girls basketball, Mason earned 70 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2017-18 school year. The Punchers also earned points in UIL academics, cross country, football, boys basketball, softball and baseball. This is the first UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Mason High School.

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 school year.

The presentations for 2018 UIL Lone Star Cup winners Prosper and Conroe The Woodlands will occur later this fall. Brock and Argyle will also be presented with their trophies on Friday, September 7. Nazareth was presented with its award earlier this fall.
