The Huskies and Trojans spring extracurricular programs rank among the best in cumulative GPA in their respective classifications

As good as the North Marion and Kennedy athletic programs performed during the spring season, the student athletes representing the Huskies and Trojans executed even better in the classroom.

The Oregon School Activities Association announced its Spring 2016-17Academic All-State award winners and both schools ranked among the best in the state in their respective classifications.

All eight spring sports offered at North Marion High School garnered final grade-point averages that topped 3.0, with six of eight ranking in the top 10 among 4A programs.

At the top was the girls golf program, with a robust 3.72 GPA — the third best mark in the state among 4A girls golf programs.

The girls tennis program was not far behind, placing 10th with a 3.53 GPA. The softball team was next with a 3.51 GPA, the sixth-best mark among 4A clubhouses.

On the boys side, the baseball team led the way for the Huskies with a GPA of 3.43 to rank fourth among 4A schools.

At Kennedy High School, the Trojans performed even better, with the softball and baseball teams leading all 2A programs with GPAs of 3.73 and 3.58, respectively. The boys track program was No. 2 in the state with a 3.38 GPA, and the school's band program ranked third in the state with a 3.53 mark.

The academic success was a continuation of what both schools have been achieving throughout the 2016-17 school year.

During the winter season, North Marion's boys and girls swim and basketball programs, along with its wrestling and cheer programs, all had GPAs above the 3.0 threshold required to earn All-Academic status by the OSAA.

Kennedy's basketball programs ranked likewise, as did their Tri-River rivals at St. Paul High School.

In the fall season, North Marion's girls soccer, boys cross country and volleyball programs each had GPAs above 3.0.

During the same season, Kennedy had the No. 2 volleyball program in the state academically and the football team was ranked fifth. Together, all four of the Trojans' fall sports programs turned in grades above the 3.0 mark.

St. Paul's teams ranked similarly in the fall, with the football team boasting the second-best GPA among 2A programs, while the volleyball program was No. 5 overall.
