2020 Spring Academic All-State awards
Although the 2020 spring season was canceled, the Oregon School Activities Association still kept track of its spring Academic All-State teams for sports, music and speech over the past three months.
Sponsored by OnPoint Community Credit Union, the Academic All-State program highlights the top scholastic student-athletes in each of the six classifications, earning points toward the annual OSAA Cup award, the highest honor given out by the OSAA each year.
Each member of a winning team receives a commemorative decal and a certificate. The school receives a plaque in honor of its team. Members of top 10 schools in each activity at each classification also are recognized.
All teams that earn a 3.0 GPA or higher will receive 25 points for their school in The OSAA Cup standings. Teams in the Top 10 in an activity receive additional points.
The girls track and field program led the Cougars this past spring, placing fifth among 6A schools with a 3.75 cumulative GPA. In total, 10 of Canby's spring programs earned a 3.0 GPA or higher, with the boys golf team joining girls track among top 10 programs with a 3.63 average, placing 10th among 6A teams.
