RockwallHeath Students Rank In Statewide Competition

Rockwall-Heath High School has been ranked 15th in the state for its division in the University Scholastic League Lone Star Cup.

Students involved with University Interscholastic League (UIL) compete in athletic, academic and fine arts competitions with other schools across the state. The Lone Star Cup is awarded to the highest performing school in each of six divisions based on district and state championships.

RH-HS tied for 15th place in the 5A division with four other schools, all having an overall score of 52 in the various athletic, academic and fine arts contests.

“All three areas are strong at Rockwall-Heath High School,” Renae Murphy, chief communications office for Rockwall Independent School District, said. “Our students compete and perform at a very high level.”

In the academic category, the Hawks won first place in computer science, journalism, number sense, math, science and spelling/vocabulary. The team also won second place for calculator apps, ready writing and literary criticism.

According to Murphy, this year’s academic UIL team set a school record for the number of competitors advancing to regional competitions.

For athletics, RHHS teams won 11 district championships, and scored a first place victory in wrestling at the state 5A championship.

The Rockwall-Heath Wind Ensemble was selected as best band in the region, while the RHHS orchestra won Sweepstakes earlier this year, which is the highest award given to a musical group by UIL. The RHHS Orchestra has earned Sweepstakes every year since 2013, when the team first began competing.

Divisions are determined by the UIL, and the first place school in the Lone Star Cup for each division is given a trophy and $1,000. First place for the 5A division was awarded to Vandegrift High School in Austin.

Divisions are determined based on the size of the school, with 6A being the largest.
