Poth High School students traveled to and competed April 20-21 in the UIL regional academic meet at Texas State University in San Marcos in 12 different events, earning 29 points as a school. Poth will proudly send three students to the state competition Monday and Tuesday, May 21-22, at the University of Texas at Austin.

On April 20, the 13 students and their coaches traveled to San Marcos to enjoy the traditional pre-competition shopping and dinner. Of course, some students couldn’t resist the siren song of Half-Price Books and spent quite a while there, perhaps starting a new tradition?

The next day, everybody’s mind was competition-oriented. Many competed, but only three advanced.

Junior Seth Dunn, who participated in number sense, placed fourth, with only a few points separating him from third place, landing the state alternate spot.

Junior Cody Soto also received the honor of state alternate after competing in two rounds of poetry interpretation and coming in at fifth place.

In her third year of headline writing competition, senior Heather Meyer earned a well-deserved first-place medal. This makes her one of 12 students who advance to the state competition in headline writing.

Upon hearing the good news from her coach and UIL Campus Coordinator Lisa Theuret, Heather celebrated in the most obvious and expected way: by shouting it from the rooftops.

“I’m going to state!” she yelled, loud enough to alert half the campus.

Heather, you sure do deserve it.

Kenya Barrientos, a junior at Poth High School, is the daughter of Carlos and Veronica Barrientos. She is a member of 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.
