Even though the HGHS Academic UIL Team was small in numbers and unable to compete in many events, they still managed to clinch a third-place spot at the District 13AA meet held in Trenton on Sat., March 30. Most of the 20 students dressed in the dark due to an electrical outage in town and left early Sat. morning and didn’t return home until that evening, but 16 of those 20 qualified for the regional meet, which will be held April 12-13 at Grayson County College in Denison.

The following is a list of their awards. Those placing in the top three will advance. All members of first-place teams advance, as well.
