The rankings are in! The final scores for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Lone Star Cup have been posted, and the state of Texas is once again aware of Dragon dominance. With a combined five state championships for the 2012–2013 school year, the Dragons took home the prestigious award given annually to one high school — per class designation 1A–5A — based on their performance in district and state championships.
With a final score of 122 points, Southlake soared past perennial powerhouse Conroe The Woodlands, who finished second place behind Carroll for the second year in a row with a total score of 100. After winning the Lone Star Cup last year, Southlake Carroll repeated its success by protecting the tradition and winning its fourth cup since the 1997–1998 school year and second 5A Lone Star Cup title in as many years.
The Dragons’ state championship binge was led by the boys and girls cross-country, swimming and diving teams who each took home state championships during their respective seasons. Courtney Kriegshauser, a member of Dragon track and field, took home a state championship in the 1600-meter, while swimmer Jonathan Roberts and diver Bryce Klein set 5A state records in the 200-meter and 1-meter dive, respectively.
As the winning school, Southlake earned the prestigious distinction as the best overall athletic and academic program in 5A Texas competition. In addition to receiving the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy to decorate the senior high’s hallways, Southlake Carroll will also receive a $1,000 scholarship donation.
The University of Texas at Austin, in an effort to provide leadership and guidance to public school debate and athletic teachers, created the UIL in 1910. Since its inception, it has grown into the largest interschool organization of its kind in the world.
