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.

Soccer Trio From Judson Sign To Play College Level

The number of JISD student athletes that have been signing letters of intent to play at the college level shows the level of talent...and it's not just football or basketball. In fact, three members of the Lady Rocket Soccer Team have signed to play college ball.  Karla Beltran will attend and play for Texas Lutheran University, Danielle Struxness will be going to Mary Hardin Baylor University and Unique Williams to Bethany College in Kansas.  These three, along with all the senior class, have been instrumental in the program's success.  The coaches want to thank and congratulate each one of them and their parents for the time and dedication in making this a truly remarkable and memorable season.  All of us along with Judson Head Soccer Coach Shae Huntington wish you the very best.
