HP Gymnasts Qualify for State Meet


Highland Park placed third in the team standings at the regional gymnastics meet this week in Rockwall.

The Highland Park girls are headed to the Texas State High School Gymnastics Championships after a third-place finish in the team standings at regionals.

The strong performance by the Lady Scots at the regional meet this week means HP will take its entire team to the state meet on April 27-28 at Rockwall-Heath.

Tatum Meeks led the Lady Scots with a regional title on balance beam in addition to runner-up finishes on vault and uneven bars. That also placed her second in the all-around competition.

You’ll notice a couple of extra captains on the football field for Highland Park this fall. Instead of the traditional four, there will be six seniors leading the 2018 squad.

The captains include Ryan Butz, Hudson Clark, Finn Corwin, Ryan Khetan, James Lightbourn, and Regan Riddle. Each of them played significant roles during the Scots’ run to the Class 5A state title last year.

The HP coaching staff also recently announced the 13-member player committee (listed after the jump). The Scots will open spring practice next week and will start the regular season on Aug. 31 against Rockwall.

HP Drops to Third Place in 15-5A

Highland Park remains in the thick of the playoff picture in District 15-5A despite suffering consecutive road losses to Forney and Royse City.

The Sots (12-13, 8-3) dropped out of the top spot in the standings during a 4-0 loss to the Jackrabbits on April 14 during which Forney’s Mason Englert threw a no-hitter. That defeat also snapped HP’s seven-game winning streak in district play, which included a 2-1 victory over Forney two days earlier.

On Tuesday, the Scots couldn’t take advantage of five Royse City errors during a 6-5 loss. It was the seventh game for HP in 15-5A play decided by two runs or fewer.
