Girls soccer, boys cross country are Academic All-State winners
PORTLAND, Ore., December 12, 2018— OnPoint Community Credit Union and the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) have announced the fall winners of the 2018-2019 OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Program. This program awards students for outstanding achievement in the classroom.
The Academic All-State Award is awarded to all boys and girls teams in each OSAA-sanctioned activity that achieve a 3.0 or higher cumulative team grade point average. Each member of a winning team receives a commemorative decal and a certificate. Members of the top 10 schools in each activity of each classification receive additional recognition and the top school receives a plaque in honor of its team.
Canby has received a number of those recognitions for the 2018 fall season. The girls' soccer team was tied for 8th in the 6A classification with Sunset and Central Catholic with a collective GPA of 3.8, and the boys cross country team had a GPA of 3.83.
Finishing outside of the top 10, but still at or above a 3.0 were Canby's football team (3.02), volleyball team (3.56), and the girls cross country team (3.84).
"OnPoint partnered with the OSAA because we are committed to advancing education and enrichment," said OnPoint President and CEO Rob Stuart. "Congratulations to the winners of the Academic All-State Award for your continued excellence in your activities and in the classroom."
The Academic All-State Award is part of OnPoint's five-year partnership agreement with the OSAA, which includes the title sponsorship of the Oregon high school state championships. This partnership builds on OnPoint's commitment to strengthen education by supporting students, schools and educators. OnPoint was founded by 16 schoolteachers in 1932 and has honored those roots in a variety of ways, including the OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education.
"OnPoint's commitment to education made the organization an ideal partner for the OSAA," said Peter Weber, OSAA Executive Director. "Together, we are so proud of what the winners of the Academic All-State Award have accomplished and can't wait to see what their future holds."
The OSAA sponsors 118 state championships in 19 interscholastic activities including choir, dance/drill, football, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls swimming, wrestling, cheerleading, baseball, softball, boys and girls track and field, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls golf, band, orchestra, solo music and speech.
