Lago Vista Middle School Wins 1st Ever UIL Championship!

Last Friday, Lago Vista Middle School and Lago Vista Elementary School travelled to Jarrell to compete in the district UIL academic competition. This is where students have the opportunity to compete in events like spelling, science, oral reading, and a variety of other subjects For the past several months, many of our students and coaches dedicated numerous hours of practice, hard work, and studying to prepare for this year's competition.


The effort paid off, and the result was well worth it!! When all was said and done, Lago Vista Middle School finished the day with 1068 team points, which was 312 points in front of second place. Unless you are involved or have any experience in academic UIL, this score may not mean much to you. To put this into perspective for you, we could use a football analogy. This win would be like a playoff win greater than 45-7, using a regulation "inflated" football. For those who sports may not be their thing, this win is like winning best picture, best actor, best actress, and best supporting actor along with best soundtrack at the Oscars. A clean sweep for the Vikings!


I am very proud of our coordinators (Maria Bricker & Cathy Evans), coaches, and students for this incredible accomplishment. I did some research into our school history, and the best I could find, according to our records, was we had a grade level win at the competition in 1998. With such a great history of UIL championships at both Lago Vista Elementary School and Lago Vista High School, I am proud to have our school included in this legendary tradition. I truly believe that success breeds success, and we are beginning the tradition of UIL CHAMPIONS at LVMS!


UIL is not quite over yet. Our One-Act-Play team competes this Wednesday at the LVHS PAC, and we are looking forward to their success. Break a leg cast and crew!
