FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The University Interscholastic League will honor Weimar High School on Friday, October 17 for its 2014 Class 1A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place at halftime of Weimar’s football game against Flatonia High School at Weimar Stadium, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup honors the best overall academic and athletic 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.”

With state championships in softball and boys and girls golf, a state semifinalist girls basketball team and a regional finalist in baseball, Weimar earned 78 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2013-14 school year. The Wildcats also earned points in UIL volleyball, football and boys basketball. This is the second consecutive and third overall UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Weimar High School.

The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to five high schools, one in each of the five UIL classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A), 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. UIL Director of Athletics Dr. Mark Cousins will be on hand to make the presentation.

The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 season.
