Brownwood High School students Matthew Roddam, Meosha Brooks and Lindsey Shriver are looking for a repeat win at the state UIL meet this weekend in Austin.

They’re headed that way today.

The three, all seniors, were on the state winning team in 2007, and so far as a team, have swept the district and regional contests.

Each of the three also qualified individually for accounting and Roddam swept the district and regional contests with first place wins in computer applications and will compete at the state level in that as well. He placed fifth in state in computer applications in 2007.

Roddam said he has been on the accounting team all four years of high school. Individually, he placed second in state in 2007 and earned a fourth place in 2006. This year, he was second in district and first at regionals.

The most challenging, nerve-wracking part of the contest, the veteran said, is “waiting for the scores.”

Roddam plans to attend Howard Payne University next year and major in accounting with a youth ministry minor.

Brooks said the limited time on the contest is the most nerve-wracking thing. She also advanced to state individually in 2007 and has been a UIL participant in calculator applications, number sense, and mathematics.

Brooks plans to attend Angelo State University next year.

Shriver is also a second-year letterman in accounting. Individually, she placed first in district and third in region this year, and fourth in state last year.

She is a member of the National Honor Society, Key Club and Choices.

“The short amount of time,” she said, is the most nerve-wracking part of the state competition.
