AUSTIN, TX — The University Interscholastic League will honor Wall High School on Friday, September 1 for its 2017 Conference 3A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during halftime of Wall’s football game against Monahans High School at Hawk 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 a state runner-up in baseball, state semifinalist in football, and regional finalist in girls basketball, Wall earned 78 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2016-17 school year. The Hawks also earned points in UIL volleyball, boys basketball, boys and girls track & field, academics and softball. This is the first UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Wall 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. Nazareth will be presented with their trophy on Sunday, September 3. Sundown was presented with their award earlier this fall.
