The district UIL academic contest was held this past Saturday in Palmer. I do not have individual results at this time, but the following information comes from Vikki GoDair, UIL coordinator at the HS:
Once again, the Eustace UIL Academics team had a strong showing at the District Meet. Thirty-one students competed and brought home 19 medals, 14 ribbons, and 2 first-place team plaques. So far TWENTY students will be advancing to Regionals. Official results will be posted on the UIL website by tomorrow. Thanks to coaches and students who worked hard all year to make this happen!
Congratulations to all the students and their sponsors on these achievements!
