After months or, in some cases, years of preparation, 35 Poth High School students walked into the District 28-AA UIL Academic Meet in Karnes City on March 23 with the hope to advance to regionals, and at the end of the day 18 students walked out with medals and the security that they were advancing. Poth High School earned a total of 303 points.

Teams that advanced include:

Accounting, first; Journalism, third; Current Issues and Events, third; Literary Criticism, first; Mathematics, second; Number Sense, first; Social Studies, third; Speech, second; and Spelling and Vocabulary, second.

One-Act Play is also part of the Academic Meet; they competed at the district meet on March 27 in San Marcos High School, but sadly, will not be moving on to regionals.

The regional qualifiers will participate in the regional UIL meet on Saturday, April 20, at Texas State University at San Marcos.

When asked about the experience, UIL sponsor Lisa Theuret said, “We’re very excited about the amount of students we’re taking to regionals this year, especially the speakers, because we haven’t done as well in the past. Second-place Speech team was a good surprise.”

Junior Journalist Kenya Barrientos is a senior at Poth High School. She is a member of the FCCLA and Book Club and participates in UIL literary criticism, current events, and social studies. The daughter of Carlos and Veronica Barrientos plans to major in journalism after high school.
