Three cheers for Lamar High School

2012 December 11
by HISD Communications

Texans Fever is sweeping the city, but it’s the Redskins that are all the buzz at HISD this week — the Lamar High School Redskins, that is.

On behalf of Team HISD, I’d like to give a shout out to the Lamar team and Coach Tom Nolen for a spectacular 28-7 win on Saturday against North Shore. Lamar advanced to the 5A semifinals for the first time in school history. What an accomplishment! And it’s the first time an HISD school has moved to the round since Vince Young led Madison there in 2001.

And it’s not just the accomplishments on the field that count. After the victory against North Shore, Coach Nolen talked about all the great things happening in HISD, particularly in the classrooms. This district is committed not only to excellence on the field, but rigor in the classrooms, and it’s great to have our coaches champion that effort.

If you’re ready to cheer on Lamar to a state championship, head over to Austin this Saturday to catch their 5A Division I State Semifinal game against San Antonio O’Connor. It’s at 3 p.m. at Burger Stadium. Go Redskins!
