The Nixon-Smiley athletic program had four athletes named to the All-State All Academic team. 

On the girls side, seniors Katelyn “Katy” Tschoepe and Lillianna “Lilli” Jenks were named to the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) academic all-state first team.

“Way to go girls, and congratulations on your dedication and hard work,” Lady Mustangs head coach Doug Boatright announced through social media.

On the boys side, Santos Pompa and Edgar Ochoa, both seniors, were honorably mentioned to the THSCA academic all-state team.

“We are extremely proud of these young men and appreciate the effort and dedication they display, not only on the basketball court but also in the classroom,” read a post announcing the award on Nixon-Smiley CISD’s official Facebook page. “Great job Mustangs. We are proud of you.”
