It’s a 3-peat! Liberty Hill High School wins 3rd straight Breazeale Cup for athletics
For the third straight year, Liberty Hill High School has won the Austin American-Statesman’s Breazeale Cup, which ranks the most successful high school athletic programs in Central Texas.
The Breazeale Cup is named for the Statesman’s late sports writer, George Breazeale, who was legendary for his dedication to covering high school sports over five decades. It recognizes the most successful high school athletic programs in Travis, Burnet, Williamson, Hays and Bastrop counties, plus a few more bordering counties.
Breazeale Cup rankings are based on a school’s success in all sports over the previous year. With the Liberty Hill High School Panthers making it to 2018-19 state championships in football, boys’ basketball, and girls’ soccer, it once again clenched the number one spot.
With 104 total points, Liberty Hill High won the Breazeale Cup by a wide margin, easily besting the second-place finisher, Westlake, which had 93 points.
To determine the winner of the Breazeale Cup, the Statesman uses a formula similar to the one that the University Interscholastic League uses to select the Lone Star Cup winners. Points are awarded for each sport, based on a team’s finish in district, regional and state tournaments, as well as its postseason results.
Liberty Hill’s scores for each sport were: Girls soccer, 17; boys’ basketball, 17; football, 15; baseball, 13; girls’ basketball, 13; softball, 7; boys’ soccer, 7; volleyball, 5; boys’ golf, 4; boys’ cross country, 4; and girls’ cross country, 2.
Overall, the Liberty Hill Independent School District is ranked as the No. 2 Best School District for Athletes in the Austin area by Niche.
Congrats to all of the student athletes, coaches, faculty members and dedicated parents who helped Liberty Hill win this prestigious award for the third consecutive year!
