BREAKING: Brock edges Wall for sixth Lone Star Cup

For the second year in a row and sixth time in school history, Brock has won the Lone Star Cup.

The UIL announced the six winners of its annual award for overall athletic department achievement on Monday, and the Eagles were joined by Southlake Carroll in Class 6A, Dallas Highland Park in 5A, Argyle in 4A, Mason in 2A and Nazareth in 1A.

Brock, which finished the 2018-19 school year with 79 points, edged out Class 3A runner-up Wall by nine points and third-place Holliday by 13.

The Eagles placed second in the state in boys basketball, reached the state semifinals in football and softball, and went at least four rounds deep in volleyball, girls basketball and baseball.

With this year’s honor, Brock has now won the Lone Star Cup in back-to-back years on three occasions. Before last year’s Cup, the school’s previous titles came in 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2016.

The first award was handed out following the 1997-98 school year.

In addition to Brock and Wall, Jim Ned also finished in the top 25 of the Class 3A Cup standings, tying four others for 24th place with 34 points.

San Saba and Albany were the only schools in the Big Country Preps coverage area to make the Class 2A standings, finishing 13th and 18th, respectively. The Armadillos finished with 46 points — 30 less than Cup winner Mason — while the Lions finished with 38.

In Class 1A, Eula tied for seventh with 42 points and Hermleigh tied for 19th with 32 points. Nazareth won the award with 62 points, topping second place Gail Borden County by three.
