HEB's 9-11 5K Run-Walk Cancelled

The HEB 5K run-walk that was scheduled for September 6th at has been cancelled.  The company offers its apologies to Judson ISD and to runners who may have already registered for the race. The reason for the cancellation was not tied to the district in any way, but the company decided it would be best for the event to be possibly rescheduled for sometime in the future when more runners could participate. Below is a link to the HEB letter explaining the decision in more detail.

Fall Football Season Right Around Corner

The fall brings a new sense of excitement with school starting and students returning.  It also means a brand new football season.  Both Judson and Wagner High Schools are looking at the upcoming season with a view of optimism as they both begin a fresh start in a realigned UIL district. Both schools look for competitive teams in what looks to be a district grouping that will garner a lot of attention.  The Judson Rockets are under the leadership of Sean McAuliffe ('93) who took on the Head Coach job late last year after being Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator.  Meanwhile, this is the second year at the helm for Wagner Head Football Coach Charles Bruce who was a player in the first Judson State Football Championship in 1983 and later as a coach in 2002. This year will be a competitive and exciting one for both schools...from the initial scrimmages to the last district games.  Check out the schedules for both teams and support our schools!

JISD Special Olympians Tear It Up At State!

It was the 45th Anniversary State Summer Games for Special Olympics at UT Arlington and the JISD Special Olympians made sure it was one to remember.  They won numerous Track and Field medals, including the Gold for the 4X100 relay, for a very impressive showing...in fact if you CLICK HERE  you can see the medals that these kids earned.  Along with the track events, the Thunder-Rocket Basketball team saved their best performance for the last game and took the Silver Medal. They capped it off with a Luau Dance Party in honor of the athletes and their success.  Congratulations.

JHS Student v. Faculty Basketball Game A Barn-Burner!

 

It's all in good fun, but both the Judson High School faculty and student teams were out there giving it their all on the court in their annual basketball challenge.  It was a game of catchup for the faculty as they hung around long enough...and close enough to strike at the right time.  The two teams played to a packed house with the proceeds going toward "Project Graduation" which is an event specifically for seniors to hang out with their friends all night and enjoy some great fun.  The game garnered media attention from the Northeast Herald and the Spanish TV News Univision...Principal Hernandez even did a Spanish interview with the reporter. Halftime featured a performance by the Judson Cheerleaders and a special showing of the Judson Lady Rocket Track Team winning the 5-A State Championship. The team was also honored by a one by one call out by Coach Danaher.  It was great fun, but in the end the faculty team came out the winners with a last second shot after coming from behind....final score 72-71.  Check out the photos.
