It was the day many students were looking forward to in anticipation. After months of hard work, 38 students from Poth High School participated in the district UIL Academic Meet in Three Rivers on March 24. At the end of the day, 14 students advanced to regionals, putting Poth in third place with 263 points.

Here are the results.

Accounting: Kayleigh Wauters, second; calculator applications: Kayleigh Wauters, second; Kelsee Felux, fifth; and Lexi Wauters, sixth; current events: Clay Rotter, third; computer applications: Joshua Churning, third; and Aaron Friesenhahn, sixth; editorial writing: Heather Meyer, third; and Molly Jarzombek, sixth; feature writing: Cody Soto, second; and Kalynn Garza, fourth; headline writing: Heather Meyer, first; literary criticism: Claire Raabe, first; Kenya Barrientos, second; Whitney Lynch, third; and Craig Kilgore. The team placed first in district competition.

More winners include: mathematics: Seth Dunn, fourth; number sense: Seth Dunn, second; and Kelli Kolodziej, sixth; poetry interpretation: Cody Soto, third; prose interpretation: Rhiannon Nelson, sixth; ready writing: Claire Raabe, first; social studies: Zachry Friesenhahn, second; and Audrey Raabe, fourth; spelling and vocabulary: Jessica Dzuik, second; and Heather Meyer, fifth.

Poth High School also received one fourth-place team in science; two third-place teams in journalism and accounting; six second-place teams in number sense, current events, calculator apps, spelling, math, and social studies; and one first-place team in literary criticism.

The qualifiers will participate in the regional UIL meet Saturday, April 21, at Texas State University in San Marcos.

As a final thought, UIL Coordinator Lisa Theuret said, “It’s very important for students to continue to prepare for regionals and not think that they’re set because they placed at district. We have a lot of tough competition in our region.”

Kenya Barrientos, a junior at Poth High School, is the daughter of Carlos and Veronica Barrientos. She is a member of the FCCLA, and participates in UIL events, including social studies, current events, and literary criticism. In addition, Kenya is the editor of The Spyglass, her school newspaper. She hopes to pursue journalism or culinary arts in college; however, she hasn’t ruled out becoming a high school English teacher.
