UIL District Academic Meet
 

 

 

The UIL District Academic Meet was held March 26-27, 2015. As Runner-up Champions, Joshua students failed to win in their bid for Overall District Champs, as the new District 8-5A Champion of 2015 is Aledo High School. Joshua still had spectacular achievements during the meet. Joshua’s Speech and Debate team, Journalism team, Number Sense team and Spelling & Vocabulary team won top honors, and along with many successful individuals, will advance to Regional competition. First through third place individuals will advance to regional competition as well as first place teams. Accounting, as the highest ranking 2nd place team in the region, will advance as the Wild-card.

 

 

Please congratulate these students for placing and/or advancing to Regionals April 23-25.

Lady Owls
 

The Joshua Lady Owl soccer team defeated Wichita Falls Rider 2(2)-2(1) (meaning a 2-2 tie through regulation and two overtimes; then we won the penalty shootout 2-1) Thursday night and secured the area championship.  As such, the Lady Owls will advance to the regional quarterfinal round of playoffs Tuesday, Apr. 7 against Grapevine, the district 6-5A champion.  Our ladies would love your support as they head to the regional quarterfinal round of playoffs. 


 

The details for our regional quarterfinal round game are as follows:

 

Joshua Women vs. Grapevine Women

Tuesday, Apr. 7 at 6:00 PM

Brewer Bear Stadium in Fort Worth

 
 

 
 Camp Perry
 
Camp Perry 
 
The Precision Rifle Team just returned from Camp Perry, Ohio.   The team finished 11th at the All Service Nationals, which on the surface, doesn’t sound very impressive.  However, there are over 3,500 Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force JROTC units nationwide, which range in size from 100 to 900 Cadets.  After three area, regional, and semi-final rounds, the top 17 precision teams advanced to Camp Perry for the shoot-off last week.  Out of 4,800 points that could potentially be earned over the two day match, the teams were so close that final results were determined by Center X’s… that is to say, not just hitting the bullseye, but how hard you hit it.  The bullseye is half the size of the head of a pin.  Two time Gold Medalist Gary Anderson was present at the event.

 Code Talkers
 
Navajo Code Talkers
 

Joshua Cadets traveled to JRB Fort Worth on March 20th and had the honor of meeting with WWII Marine Navajo Code Talkers.  These living legends, now in their 90’s, related remarkably well to the bright-eyed teenagers as they shared their incredible experiences.

 
 

 

Congratulations Devon and Erynn!
 
Debate  

 

Congratulations to Senior Policy Debaters, Devon Heidenreich and Erynn Cole, who participated in UIL CX Debate State tournament in Austin this past weekend. These ladies did a fantastic job representing JHS!  They finished with 3 wins and only 1 loss.
 
If you see them, please remember to congratulate these very talented young women on their excellent performance!
