The final tallies are now official for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Lone Star Cup, and for the third year in a row the Southlake Carroll Dragons took home the honor as the state’s most accomplished school across band, theater, academic and athletic pursuits.
The Dragons celebrated state championships in boys and girls cross country, boys swimming and diving and wrestling for the 2013–2014 school year. Strong playoff performances from the girls volleyball and boys golf, in addition to several team district championships, also added to the UIL distinction.
With a final score of 115 points, Southlake once again soared past perennial powerhouse Conroe The Woodlands, which finished second place behind Carroll for the third straight year with a total score of 78. With this latest Lone Star Cup, Southlake Carroll has taken home its fifth UIL cup since the 1997–1998 school year and third 5A Lone Star Cup title in as many years.
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.
