SGS Wins Scholastic Cup as Top 2B School in State
Saint George's School has won the WIAA Scholastic Cup for the top 2B school in the state for academic and athletic performance! SGS racked up 1,585 points, including earning four state academic titles (choir, debate, boys soccer, and boys tennis) for highest grade point average. The school also earned points for top athletic teams, including the boys soccer, girls soccer, girls track, and boys basketball teams that all finished 2nd in State. See the Rankings of 2B Schools and the List of SGS Programs that earned points toward the title.
The WIAA Scholastic Cup recognizes performance in the classroom as well as on the playing surface. Schools that finish at the top of their respective classifications in state athletic competition receive points, as do schools that finish at the top in team academic performance. SGS had finished 2nd to Northwest Christian the past two years, finally passing the Crusader's 1,405 points to claim the title this year. League rivals Colfax (865 points) and Davenport (830 points) finished 3rd and 4th overall, highlighting the athletic and academic strength of Eastern Washington's small schools.
This marks the second time that Saint George's has won the Scholastic Cup, while finishing 2nd seven times and in the Top 5 statewide 13 times. One measure of Saint George's academic strength was that SGS was the only school in 2017-18 to win the Scholastic Cup without winning an athletic State Championship. Go Dragons!
