The UIL Academic Regionals Competition was held on Saturday April 17th at Lindale High School under the direction of UIL coordinator Robert Walsh and UIL Journalism coach Jessica Otte.

The two students who previously advanced to Regionals were junior Caraline Otte and senior Katherine Adams. They both competed in Journalism State events for Editorial Writing and Feature Writing.

Adams advanced to State in Feature Writing with a 3rd place medal and Editorial Writing with a 1st place medal winning the title of 4A Regional Second Runner-Up for the team.

“I am super excited to represent Chapel Hill at the Sate level,” Adams said. “I’m glad that my studying paid off.”

Adams will compete in the State competition which will be held Saturday, May 1st at the Tyler ISD CTC building due to COVID-19 requiring sub locations for State.
