SBISD Athletes in the News

Spring Branch ISD high school athletes have made news in recent weeks by signing letters of intent with state and national universities, as well as for scholarship awards and nominations.

On Nov. 13, Memorial High School seniors Ashley Pilcher (softball) and Matt Collins (baseball) signed, respectively, with George Washington University in softball and Texas A&M University.

On Nov. 6, Matt Collins of Memorial High and Zachary Miller of Stratford High School won recognition along with 23 other football players at the annual Football Scholar-Athlete Award Luncheon sponsored by the Touchdown Club of Houston.

Student nominees were chosen by the presidents of Rice, Texas Southern and the University of Houston. As Club honorees, Collins and Miller are eligible to receive $500 scholarships. Three finalists will be awarded additional scholarships. Students must be team starting players with a strong academic record.

Earlier on Oct. 26, meanwhile, three SBISD students were honored as finalists during a Positive Coaching Alliance scholarship and awards breakfast held at the River Oaks Country Club.

Selected as top finalists in the PCA Triple-Impact Competitor Scholarship were seniors Jessica Ustick of Memorial High, Abigail Brown of Stratford High, and Marissa Clark of Spring Woods High. Marissa Clark is also a recent recipient of a $5,000 Reliant Scholarship awarded to student athletes in the Houston region.

PCA is a national group with more than 200 partner schools and organizations, including SBISD secondary schools. It provides youth and high school athletes positive, character-building sports experiences.
