AUSTIN, TX — The University Interscholastic League will honor Nazareth High School on Sunday, September 3 for its 2017 Conference 1A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during a community parade in Nazareth which begins at 10:00 a.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 state championships in academics, girls basketball and tennis, state runner-up in girls cross country, and regional finalist in boys basketball, Nazareth earned 76 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2016-17 school year. The Swifts also earned points in UIL football and baseball. This is the first UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Nazareth 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 2017 UIL Lone Star Cup winners Argyle, Dallas Highland Park and Conroe The Woodlands will occur later this fall. Wall will be presented with their trophy on Friday, September 1. Sundown was presented with their award earlier this fall.
