Sweetwater High students worked hard to prepare for University Interscholastic League (UIL) academic competition this year. Participating students placed in multiple academic areas at the district level and then represented SHS in the UIL Regional Competition at Texas Tech University.
Teachers Terri Petty, Katie McElroy, Judith Brentz, Deana Gray, and School Counselor Ruth Ann Campbell escorted the students to Regionals. According to Mrs. Petty, "Our students worked hard and performed very well to get to the regional level." Mrs. Petty coached students in mathematics as well as coordinated all the high school's UIL Teams.
The campus is already planning for next year. Plans are being made to add additional honors and dual credit courses, add additional practice time beginning in the Fall semester, and to actively pursue more teams of students that are willing to devote time and effort to UIL Academics. Sweetwater High is striving to become the premier UIL team in our area.
