Tartan Athletics Recognized with CIF-SS Academic Awards
Five St. Margaret's athletic programs were ranked in the top three of their sport enrollment category.
Five St. Margaret's athletic teams finished among the top three in academic achievement, announced by the CIF Southern Section recently. The Tartans were well represented by boys golf (2nd), boys soccer (2nd) football (3rd), boys lacrosse (3rd) and boys track & field (3rd). Receiving honorable mention accolades are; baseball, boys basketball, girls basketball, girls beach volleyball, boys and girls cross country, girls golf, girls lacrosse, girls soccer, boys and girls swimming & diving, boys and girls tennis, girls track & field and boys and girls volleyball.
To be considered, teams must have a minimum of five student-athletes with a 3.0 GPA average (4.0 scale) in the first semester or first two quarters of the 2022-2023 school year. The highest team GPA in each sport category by enrollment determines the winner. Schools are divided into two enrollment categories, 1,500 and above and 1,499 and below. The team with the highest GPA in each enrollment category for each sport receives the award.
"The number of St. Margaret's teams included in this year's CIF Academic Awards shows the tremendous dedication our students have towards the concept of being a scholar-athlete," said St. Margaret's Executive Director of Community Health and Athletics Patrick Bendzick. "Coupled with the success they have experienced in competition, their academic achievements are a shining example of how it's not necessary to compromise one for the other."
