Saturday will be anything but a day of rest for the school’s UIL academic teams as the school hosts an invitational meet. But the UIL teams will be competing at Willow Springs instead of the high school due the hosting of the SAT at the high school.

“I’m really pleased that [Willow Springs] would let us use their campus,” UIL coach Tami Parker said. “It just happened that it all fell [on the same day as the SAT]. This is an invitational meet so it isn’t a UIL district state meet so it’s really  helpful Willow Springs is willing to host this event,”
