WHS Academic UIL

The Wildkat Invitational UIL meet was Saturday, January 19th.  Willis High School finsihed behind Magnolia High School to win 2nd place overall. Many thanks to the teachers and coaches who helped make this day a success. We raised money for Wildkat scholarships & had a lot of fun. The team is preparing for two meets in February before the district meet in March at Willis High School. If you see any of these students, tell them congrats. It takes a lot of practice, talent and hard work to place at a UIL meet.
