It's great to see JISD student athletes recruited and given opportunities to take their skills and academics to the next level. The latest is Ethan Mueller who recently signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the Texas Lutheran University Bulldogs. We wish him the best in the classroom and on the diamond.
The Judson Rocket Girls Track Team have repeated as STATE CHAMPS. They sealed the deal while at the same time breaking two greater San Antonio track records and producing three nationally ranked performances. The back to back championships saw the return of standout Mariah Kuykendoll who moved back to the Judson ISD district after moving to Oklahoma last summer. But even before their return, the Judson Girls Track Team was on pace to repeat as champs. Even Mariah was quoted as saying "“If I didn’t come back, they still could have won...everyone on this team has heart." Want to read the Express News article about it? CLICK HERE

Summer means a time to get away from the typical schedule and let your mind graze on other interests and activities that will recharge it. That goes for kids too and summer is a great time for them to stay or get more physically active. There are some great camps that JISD coaches sponsor and will run over the next few months. Here are some of them with links to more information.

Delila with her family along with Mr. Hernandez, Coach Meyer, Coach Urbanovsky and Coach Hayes
Delila, Gillespie, wasn't always a Judson Rocket, but she made a huge splash when she came to Judson. She is a two-year softball letterman who signed a letter of intent to play at Texas A&M Kingsville next year.
Delila started her high school softball career at MacArthur High School and played varsity both her freshman and sophomore years. As a sophomore she was a 2nd team All-District selection in the outfield. When she transferred her junior year to Judson High School she was picked as Honorable Mention All-District at 1st base. She is currently starting for the Rockets at centerfield.
In the classroom, she is just as competitive building a 3.6 GPA and a top 25% class standing. Delila will benefit from a scholarship at A&M Kingsville and will be an important part of the Javelina softball program as she pursues her studies in Wildlife and Range.
