The 8th grade Lady bears achieved something that has not happened in 26 years here at Austin. They are the 2017 track CITY CHAMPIONS.
The band made straight first division ratings from all 6 judges on Thursday after their UIL performance. A full sweepstakes award has not happened in over 11 years at this school. I am beyond proud of them! ~~Mrs. Lough
