7 Consol students went to Austin this weekend to participate in the UIL Academic State meet--they returned with 5 gold medals, plus a silver and a bronze (and an additional 4th place medal)! With these 7 students, along with our awesome UIL Speech Congressional Debaters (who competed at the state level earlier in the semester) AMCHS currently is ranked 3rd in Sweepstakes with 67 points (behind Lindale, 86, and Highland Park, 106). These results are not final--the speech portion of the UIL State Academic Championships will not be held until the end of May. Aabid Ravi and Elizabeth Palazzolo will represent us at that competition!
