The RLHS UIL Academic Team competed in Moody on Saturday against all of the teams in the extremely competitive Division 21-2A. Our Cougars walked away with overall 2nd place with 17 individual students and multiple teams earning the right to go on to Regionals.
Way to go Cougars!!
Congratulations to Latham Hoff and Kailey Bennett for making the All-State Academic Team in Basketball. To be named an All-State Academian, a student must be a Senior, maintain a 92 average in all classes for all four years of high school, play on the Varsity squad, and demonstrate outstanding citizenship.
Today, one of our wonderful freshman Lady Coogs, Clara Coker, took 4th place in the State Powerlifting Meet in Waco. She lifted 305 pounds in the Squat Press, 150 pounds in the Bench Press, and 380 pounds in the Dead Lift. This gave a point total of 835, 35 points higher than her Regional qualifier, and 4th in the state in her weight range. Congratulations Clara! We are so proud of you!!!
The Bartlett Bulldogs may have thought it was Spring Break but our Varsity Cougar Baseball team came ready to play. Instead of vacationing, our Cougars enjoyed the 11-1 defeat they earned against the Bulldogs on RLISD Field. Go Cougars!
While were off enjoying their Spring Break, out Lady Cougars were whipping up on the Bremond Tigers 15-0 at home. This was their first win on the season and was highlighted by Rebecca Bennett's 3-run home run!
Congratulations to Mr. Dawson Hering who was named the KWTX Channel 10 Classroom Champion of the week by the television station out of Waco/Woodway. This award is earned by excellence on the field and in the classroom. Dawson is the 2nd RLISD senior to earn the honor this year!
