Congratulations to four McAllen High students who competed in a national vocals competition last weekend. Two of them earned trophies.
 
Miguel Macias took second and Christina Lopez earned third place in the High School Division at the 25th annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza Mariachi Vocal Competition held Dec. 5-7 in San Antonio.
 
Also competing were Ashley Trevino and Natalie Carmona.
