Dyal was named the first-place winner at the Academic UIL State Competition in the Copy Editing category for the 6A division.

Trista Presley, Frenship High School UIL coach says that Dyal has worked extremely hard and is well deserving of this accomplishment. “In the 13 years I have been involved with Academic UIL there has not been anyone get 1st place at state,” said Presley.
Although this is Dyal’s second year competing in Academic UIL, she has already paved a way of inspiration for future students.
“Katherine is a very bright, determined young lady. She has been studying and preparing for this competition since last year. She competed in the competition for the first-time last year as a sophomore. She puts a lot of time and effort into excelling at everything she does,” said Presley.
