Three Rams state bound


Mineral Wells High School sent a fleet of academicians to Lubbock for last weekend's Region 1, Class 3A University Interscholastic League meet, and they sailed home with big loot.

Seemingly peaking at the regional contest, many Rams achieved personal-best scores and math students broke several school records. The numbers sense team, mathematics team and calculator applications team each set school records and placed well.

At the end of the contest, the MWHS academic team finished in 12th place and three students are now state bound – Damon Campbell and Kevin Gregory, both for computer applications, and David Naranjo, for feature writing.

The following is how Rams' results played out at the regional UIL meet:

• Journalism events – David Naranjo placed second in Feature Writing, fifth in Editorial Writing and fifth in Headline Writing. The MWHS journalism team was third overall.

•  Computer Applications – Damon Campbell placed second, and Kevin Gregory third.

• Poetry Interpretation – J.D. Choate placed sixth.

• Number Sense – the team set a school record with 343 points and placed fifth in the region. Additionally, Kevin Gregory set a MWHS individual record score of 143 points and placed 10th. Jarrod Bennett and Mollie Wilson set personal record scores of 120 and 80, respectively.

• Calculator – the team set a school record with 408 points. Gregory set a school individual record score of 171 points, while Rocio Perez set a personal record of 115 points.

• Mathematics – again, the team set a school team record of 478 points, placed fourth in the region and had the fifth highest score of regional meets throughout the state. Bennett led the team with a score of 194 points and placed ninth. Wilson set a personal record of 140 points.
