Waxahachie High One-Act Play competitors placed second in the 6A Region I bi-district contest on Thursday.

The students performed the production, “The Runner Stumbles,” at South Grand Prairie High School.

Several students were recognized individually, which included Gracie Rodriguez who received the Best Tech award, Kamerann Burney and Sam Linguist received honorable mention, Jaden Patterson along with Madeline Condor earned All-Star Cast award.

Waxahachie earned first in the District 7-6A contest on March 23 when the students performed at South Grand Prairie High School.
