FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX — The University Interscholastic League will honor Sundown High School on Friday, August 25 for its 2017 Conference 2A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during a pep rally at Sundown High School at 1:30 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 state championships in boys and girls cross country, the reigning state runner-up in marching band, and top-five team state finishes in boys and girls track & field and academics, Sundown earned 72.67 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2016-17 school year. The Roughnecks also earned points in UIL football, girls and boys basketball, softball and baseball. This is the first UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Sundown 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 Nazareth, Wall, Argyle, Dallas Highland Park and Conroe The Woodlands will occur later this fall.
