“Regionals was a fun experience,” Sophomore Ashley Wilkinson said. “I’d never been before so it was exciting to meet new people in a new place.”
The attending students included Clint Boyett, Allison Buckner, Riley Foster, Amelia Hay and Ashley Wilkinson.
“Making it to regional was the highlight of my year, especially since I beat Carthage,” Buckner said. “I did not advance from regionals, but it was the best learning experience!”
Mia Hay placed second in News writing, Riley Foster placed fifth in Editorial, Clint Boyett placed fifth in computer science.
“This was my second year at regionals, and while I didn’t advance to state, I still had a great time,” Foster said. “I love getting to hang out with all my friends who do UIL with me.”
Mia Hay will advance to state in News Writing on May fourth.
“I am really excited about going to state,” Hay said. “I can’t wait to write at state again. UIL competitions like this are such great opportunities.”
