Aledo, Brock tot up for Top 5 finishes in Cup race

Athletics, academics prove state-level superlative in 2012-13

— BY GREG WEBB

A pair of Parker County high schools continue to build upon their respective and already-impressive histories in an annual competition that provides an academic and athletic measuring stick against all other high schools in Texas.

Brock High School edged closer to the top spot in the 2012-13 competition, finishing second behind Class 2A winner Salado. Brock finished third in the previous school year and is a perennial top-ten resident in the Lone Star standings. The school won the Cup in 2009-10 and repeated the feat in 2010-11.

A couple of Lady Eagles teams led the charge for Brock, kick-starting the points collection with a district championship in volleyball, beginning a march that culminated with Brock’s first state championship.

Basketball season provided the encore, with the Lady Eagles taking home a fifth-consecutive state-championship trophy while adding another healthy dose of points toward the Cup tally.    

Brock stands to improve its potential for continued success in its classification even more, and relatively soon, as they are slated to begin UIL competition in football in the 2014-15 school year. Marching band competition may be  in the mix, as well.

Aledo High School finished fourth in Class 4A, an overall improvement in the standings over 2011-12 (eighth) and 2010-11 (tie for seventh).

Aledo is also a past co-winner of the Cup, sharing the top score with Dripping Springs in Class 3A during the 1997-98 school year.  

Cedar Park was a dominating force athletically and academically in the classification, tallying 108 points, 10 points ahead of second-place Highland Park.

Athletically, Aledo perpetuated its success in district competition, taking championships in more than a half-dozen sports. The Ladycats earned Aledo a considerable number of points, wending their way through postseason play to state tournament competition in volleyball, basketball, softball and golf.

The University Interscholastic League (UIL) Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to five high schools, one in each of the five UIL classifications, based on their team performance in district and state championships. UIL tabulations provide recognition for the top ten schools in each classification.
