Molalla, Colton, Country Christian winners of Academic All-State
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.
Molalla earned a few of those awards over the course of the 2018 fall season. The volleyball team was tied for 10th with Astoria and La Grande with a 3.62 GPA; the boys' soccer squad was in seventh with a team GPA of 3.32; the boys cross country team finished in ninth with a GPA of 3.52.
Outside of the top 10 but still at or above the 3.0 threshold was another Molalla team, the girls' soccer team (3.6).
For Colton, the volleyball team was inside the top 10 for the academic all-state with a 3.62 GPA. Country Christian's playoff qualifying volleyball team was tied for the ninth spot with Central Christian with a 3.7 GPA.
"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.
