On Saturday, several Redhawks represented campus at the 5A District 10 UIL Academic Meet. Several students on campus qualified to compete at the Regional tournament at UT Arlington.

Several students on campus competed in the 5A District 10 UIL Academic Meet on Saturday placing third overall.

The accounting team placed first in their competition, advancing them to regionals at UT Arlington.

“We’ve been preparing for about a month now. We have been using our in class accounting time to study for one and a half hours every other day,” sophomore Taha Chhapra said. “We were pumped up. We were super proud of each other and ready to fight again for regionals.”

Lincoln Douglas Debate captain and senior Shruti Bhoyar placed second on Saturday.

“I feel like UIL really supports people’s academic interests by offering an academic environment for them to thrive in,” Bhoyar said. “It also challenges them to look more deeply into certain topics, beyond the surface level. I think this is a great opportunity for students because it lets them refine their skills in a specific subject.”

The journalism team placed third overall with two members advancing to regionals: senior Haley Ward and sophomore Olivia Pulley.

“I did not have many expectations heading into the competition, so to win feature writing was a really cool thing for me,” Ward said. “Writing stories for the site the past three years really prepared me for the competition, and I am excited for regionals.”

The Regional meet will be at UT Arlington on April 27.
