UIL Academics Dominates District!
The BMS UIL Academic teams travelled to Brady on Wednesday, January 25 to compete in the District Contest. Students competed in contests that measure a variety of skills and knowledge in math, science, science, art, music, reading, writing, map, graph, and chart reading, chess, and many more. Blanco students competed against students from Brady, Llano, Comfort, Florence, and Ingram. The BMS students ran away with the first place trophy scoring 1051.1 points. Brady finished in second place with 530 points. Students are awarded points for finishing in the top 6 places in their respective contests. There are 17 contests and each contest has a 6th grade division, 7th grade division, and 8th grade division for a total of 51 contests. BMS students finished FIRST in 23 of those contests! There was a 6 way tie for first place in 8th grade Art with all 6 students turning in a perfect score on the test. Incredibly FIVE of those perfect scores were turned in by BMS students. The other was turned in by a student from Comfort. In addition to all of their first place finishes, BMS students also captured second place honors in 18 contests and third in 19 contests.
In addition to winning the overall contest, each BMS grade level finished first when compared to the same grade level from the other schools competing. In other words, 6th grade, 7th grade, and 8th grade all finished first in their divisions as well as BMS winning the overall contest.
Ms. Ashley is the UIL Director for BMS and is assisted by many teachers on the BMS campus to prepare students. A special thank you to Coach Stavlo and Coach Blenden for driving the bus and Ms. Huskerson for travelling with the students and helping out with the Competition in Brady. This marks the 4th time in the last 5 years that Blanco has won the Middle School UIL contest!
BMS Teachers, Staff, and Students give shout outs to those who have gone above and beyond expectations, provided help to another person, been a good citizen, accomplished a task/goal, won an athletic contest, participated in something unique, or just need recognition for something.
