Chaps Take 2nd in STATE!

posted May 17, 2017, 7:52 AM by Whs Web



Congratulations to our Chaps girls golf team of Randi Romack, Jordan Shackelford, Madelyn Jones, Bentley Cotton, and Sadie Englemann for their State Runner-Up finish in the hard-fought championship at Sun City's Legacy Hills course!  Our talented qualifying medalist Elena Castanon also played exceptional golf. (See link for final scoring.)

Fairly early in round one, three teams emerged as the potential state champions:  Allen, Lake Travis, and Westlake.  Allen's Ellie Szyerck's new record o 65 lead the scoring, with a strong team effort by LT and the Chaps keeping things close.  A late birdie-eagle barrage by LT gave them the Day 1 lead by 7 over Allen and 9 over the Chaps.   Senior Randi Romack's 70 (-2) and freshman Bentley Cotton's even-par 72 set the pace for the fighting Chaps.

The Chaps closed the gap early in Round 2 and moved into 2nd by two strokes with early birdies from Romack, Englemann, and Jones but LT responded to claim their 3rd straight state title. The Chaps and Allen Eagles dueled down the stretch for the silver medal, with both teams trading positions multiple times.  When the dust finally cleared, the Chaps, led by closing birdies from Romack (17 & 18), Englemann, and Cotton (18), had edged Allen by 8.

Romack's strong finish moved her into 3rd place in the individual standings with a score of -3, earning her the bronze medal and All-State 1st Team honors.  Bentley Cotton (72-75) also finished in the Top 10 for All-State 1st Team honors.  Sadie Englemann's closing -2(70)  for T-11th earned All State 2nd Team honors.  


Go Chaps!

Parking Information

posted Apr 28, 2017, 8:06 AM by Whs Web


Dear Students and Parents,

  We would like to inform you about a potential change in the process to purchase parking permits for the 2017-2018 school year. Our administrative team received a lot of feedback regarding the purchase of parking permits for next year. The discussion to move from assigned spots and parking lots to a parking lot assignment caused both support and objection. This feedback allowed us the chance to ask a few questions about parking, including the timing of selling parking permits so early in the spring right before and during our busiest testing season of STAAR and Advanced Placement tests. We also questioned if we evaluated this year's parking scenario accurately and exhaustively, which would include getting as much student input as possible.
 
   We will begin to meet and survey our senior students about the parking situation this year. We will also gather data from our rising seniors to determine the best action. Additionally, we will continue to gather data from our campus personnel who work on parking daily including Administration, Office Staff, and Security.
 
  We will make parking available for sign-up on May 31. We appreciate your patience as we work with our students who our most impacted by their daily parking on our campus.
