CISD finishes second at district UIL contest


First place finishes in three team events and gold medal wins in individual scoring were major contributors to Cleburne’s second place finish at the UIL academics district contest which qualified 18 students for regionals.

Cleburne’s academic athletes, led by members of the accounting, calculator applications and computer science teams, posted one of the strongest finishes in district competition in recent years.

In addition to their first-place win, the accounting team swept their event in individual scores with Kendall Reynolds in first place followed by Scarlet Doty, Zach Cox and Anthony Saldaña.

Hai Hoang, placed first in individual scoring in calculator applications, and with fellow competitors Andrew Gordineer, Katie Gribble and Cecilia Gonzalez won the team event.

Rounding out the gold medal wins in team competition was the CHS computer science team of Andrew Gordineer, Alex Turrubiartes, Bryson Bailey and Ryan Hedrick. Gordineer received a gold medal in individual scoring with Turrubiartes placing second and Bailey taking fourth place.

“We had students competing in several events and they were successful across the board,” said UIL Academic Coordinator Colin Yielding. “A lot of these students have given up after-school time and Saturdays preparing for and competing in practice meets — and their UIL coaches have been right there with them.

“We are proud to have finished in the second place position, ahead of some very tough competitors in our district. This achievement reflects the hard work that has taken place since we began preparing for the UIL academics district meet. We have not qualified this many students for the region contest in quite some time. It’s pretty exciting.”

Cleburne maintained its reputation as a strong competitor in the literary criticism team event, placing second. Team members included Katie Gribble, who placed third individually; Jasmin Hawk, fourth place; Chandler Forsythe and Grant Koslowksi.
