|HP in 3rd place in Lone Star Cup by Scott Farrell|
HP may well keep its string of top-three finishes in the UIL's Lone Star Cup alive, but its six-year run of winning the UIL's all-everything award honoring academics and athletics is over.
Adding in recent results from the state academic meet and the ongoing baseball playoffs, HP is in third place as of May 29. The Scots have 86 points to date, but have no way to catch Friendswood (92) and Waco Midway (90). Friendswood is still alive in the baseball playoffs, which garners two additional points for each advancement round, as is Austin Lake Travis, which is just behind HP with 78 points. Boerne Champion is currently fourth with 80 points but like HP can't earn additional points.
HP has won the Lone Star Cup every year since the 2002-03 school year, and has won 9 of the 11 awards since its founding in 1997. The Scots won the first three Cups before Southlake Carroll interrupted their string in 2000-01 and 2001-02 during its short stay in Class 4A.
The Scots have never finished lower than third.
