WISD teams earn awards at invitational

Gearing up for district competition, Wimberley High academic and speech & debate team members hauled medals from their performance at the Westwood High Invitational Feb. 23. WHS students competed among 49 schools, ranging from 4A to 6A, and placed in several categories:

“The UIL academic and speech and debate teams have been working hard in preparation for our district meet. We travel to Bandera for district competition at the end of March and I’m confident that we will do very well,” said Kyla Brookshier-DeLeon, UIL Academic Coordinator and Director of Forensics.

The Westwood meet was the final invitational meet of the season. The UIL District Lincoln Douglas Debate, Ready Writing and Journalism competition is slated for March 28. The remaining speech and debate events and all academic events will follow on March 30. Both contests are at Bandera High.
