Wilsonville winter athletes star in the classroom
Wilsonville's boys basketball team not only had success on the court this winter, finishing a perfect 14-0 in the NWOC and then advancing to the state semifinals before the tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus.
The Wildcats also showed out in the classroom, posting the fourth best grade point average, 3.55, of any Class 5A boys basketball program.
Wilsonville's girls swim team also finished in the top 10 in their respective sport, placing seventh with a 3.65 GPA.
Wilsonville's girls basketball (3.68), boys swimming (3.37), wrestling (3.03), dance (3.37) and cheer (3.3) squads also qualified for the academic all-state team.
The OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Program recognizes outstanding achievement in the classroom. The boys and girls team in each OSAA-sanctioned activity with the highest team GPA earns the Academic All-State Award. 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 ten schools in each activity at each classification are also 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.
