2023 SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame Honorees

They will be honored at a ceremony Aug. 12, 3:30pm at the Alamo Convocation Center.  Click the link above for more details.

1968 Highlands High School Baseball Team - In San Antonio ISD’s glorious rich history, the 1968 Highlands High School baseball team stands as one of the greatest sports teams ever. In only its third year of existence, the 1968 Owls baseball team pulled off the impossible – winning game after game en route to claiming the Class 4A state championship. The team won state and made history in that memorable season. At the time of the team’s induction into the SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame in 2023, some 55 years later after that amazing Cinderella season, Highlands remained as the only San Antonio team to win a baseball state championship in the largest classification of the University Interscholastic League.

Adrian Montoya - Regarded as perhaps the greatest swimmer that San Antonio ISD has ever produced, the 1995 Highlands High School alum was a two-time UIL state champion qualifier. Montoya advanced to the state swim meets in his junior and senior seasons. At 6-feet, 2-inches tall, he was a two-time district and region champion swimmer in high school. He was named to the All-American National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association in 1995. His top event was the 100-meter backstroke. His career-best time in the 100-meter backstroke was a blazing 50.5 seconds. His swim coach in high school and club was Don Walker, an icon in swimming who coached in San Antonio for nearly 50 years. Montoya’s athletic heroics earned him a full college scholarship to the University of Louisiana Monroe. In college, he set three school records and was an all-conference swimmer. The pinnacle of his career came in 2000 in Indianapolis when he defied the odds and became one of the fastest swimmers in the 100-meter backstroke in the nation by qualifying for the US Olympic Trials.


Our 55th reunion is in the books! If you did not attend, we are sorry you missed a lovely weekend reconnecting with friends. We would love to stay connected with as many alumni as possible. If you are no longer local and plan to come to San Antonio for a visit, feel free to let us know and we can organize an impromptu lunch/supper gathering.  Many of us now are dealing with serious illnesses and other issues so keep our alumni in your thoughts and prayers as we continue our daily journey. Walk Tall Highlands Class of 1967!



Fifty years ago May 26, 1967, we completed high school and ventured out into the world. We pursued many different professions and a wide variety of experiences. May 26, 2017, many of us came together to celebrate at our 50th reunion. It was truly heartwarming to witness alumni visiting, laughing, dancing and letting it all hang out! We left El Tropicano with funfilled memory banks.

Fiesta Fifty was a success. Many, many thanks go out to all our committee and decoration members, without whom this would not have happened. I can't thank this fun loving crew enough.

Typically, we have a special guest of honor at our reunions. This reunion, we all were the special guests. Fifty years, wow! Walk Tall Highlands Owls.......
