On Saturday April 8, the Generals’ UIL Academic District Championship Team competed in the UIL 5A Regional Finals at Magnolia High School. It is with great pleasure to announce that our Calculator Applications team took home first place to win the Regional, and has advanced to the State Finals in Austin. In addition, the Generals swept the top three individual scores in the event.
1st place: Ethan Song – 271 (10th grader)
There was a natural tie for 2nd place between two of our students:
2nd Place Yashwanth Gurijala – 231 (12th grader)
2nd Place Aaron Ni – 231 (10th grader)
7th place Mauricio Guerrero – 196
1st Place Team Score: 735
The 2nd place team was Magnolia with 557, which means we defeated the next best team by 178 points. Our four students will be headed to Austin, Texas to compete in the UIL State competition and will face the other four top tier schools in the state of Texas!
Congratulations go out to all of the Wisdom UIL Contestants for doing their best in Saturday’s competition, and representing the Generals!
