FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX — The University Interscholastic League will honor Prosper High School on Wednesday, September 19 for its 2018 Conference 5A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during a community pep rally at Prosper High School, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup rewards the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”

With a state championship in volleyball, a state runner-up in boys wrestling and a third-place finish at the academic state meet, Prosper earned 102 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2017-18 school year. The Eagles also earned points in UIL marching band, team tennis, football, girls and boys basketball, girls and boys soccer, softball and baseball. This is the first UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Prosper High School.

The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to six high schools, one in each of the six UIL classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A), based on their team performance in district and state championships. The winning schools in each classification receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL. The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 school year.

The presentation for 2018 UIL Lone Star Cup winner Brock is to be determined. Nazareth, Mason, Argyle and The Woodlands were presented with their awards earlier this fall.
