The MHS UIL academic team traveled to Whitehouse High School to compete in their 17th Annual Thanksgiving Classic. Several of our academic athletes placed in multiple events. Junior Madison Wright placed 5th individually in Ready Writing. Sophomore Jayden Townsend placed 8th in Congress Debate and 2nd in Headline Writing. Sophomore Walt Truelove led the Current Issues & Events team placing 1st individually closely followed by senior Vinuth Gamage who placed 3rd. These standouts with the addition of juniors Natalie Hernandez and Denise Corona secured the first-place win for our Current Issues & Event team. We are Maverick Proud!
