The Longhorns are Quidditch World Cup champions for the third-straight year.

Texas defeated Lone Star Quidditch club 120–90 to finish off a comeback and leave Quidditch World Cup 8 victorious.

The Longhorns capped off their three-peat when seeker Evan Carr caught the snitch, worth 30 points in U.S. Quidditch League play, to end the game.

Lone Star Quidditch Team got off to a quick 20–0 lead, thanks in large part to chaser Christopher Scholz. The Longhorns tied the score at 20–20 when chaser Marty Bermudez was able to get past the vaunted Lone Star defense for a score. 

The game was back and forth, but Texas was able to take a 60–50 lead because of keeper Augustine Monroe. Monroe scored three-straight goals for the Longhorns and also played stellar defense to deny a couple of Lone Star shots. 

After a fierce battle, Carr came out on top with the snitch in his hand and a Texas championship in the bag. 

Texas finished the World Cup with a perfect 9–0 record.
