Apollos and Generals Proud…
Sometimes, District J schools get a bad rap. Two recent achievements by our public school students should put those claims to rest.
Our Sharpstown High School Boys Soccer Team recently accomplished a major feat. For the first time ever, they are the Region III-5A champions! The boys played in the Semi Finals last Thursday in Georgetown, and although they didn’t make it past that round, Sharpstown is proud of what they have accomplished. The future is bright for these young men!
In addition to our athletic Apollos at Sharpstown, our “Mathletes” at Wisdom High School also stunned the field and became the Region III-5A champions in UIL Mathematics. They will be advancing to the State Championship for the first time.
Our youngest District J constituents are making us all proud and proving that Southwest Houston schools have a lot to offer. Go Apollos and Go Generals!
