It was a great ride with the Wagner Lady T-Birds basketball team as they fought through the regular season and sent to the UIL State Girls Basketball Playoffs. It came to an end against Cypress Woods, but we are so proud of these young women who displayed such poise and character as players and as people all year long. Congratulations to Coach Camacho who has been their leader and has watched each one of them grow at so many different levels during this year. You have made Judson ISD proud and are a prime example of how JISD is producing excellence in academics and athletics.
The Lady T-Birds got a nice send off to the State Playoffs

Julie Mata on the Championship platform. Two-time State Girls Wrestling Champ
Wagner senior Julie Mata did it again. For the second straight year she is the UIL Girls State Wrestling Champion. She has had a dominating season going 37-0, even though she says the competition was noticeable tougher this year. This last match at the Culwell Center Julie dispatched with her Corpus Christi King opponent by PIN with 39 seconds left in the gold medal round. Last year Julie only lost once on her way to her first state title. Julie is currently ranked as the #1 high school girl wrestler in the country. Congratulations to Julie Mata and her Wagner Wrestling Coaches Benjamin Lenyard (Outstanding Girls Wrestling Coach for 2015 Region IV, District 15-6A) and Melissa Palomo.
