Steamboat Springs Four Steamboat Springs teams have been recognized by the Colorado High School Activities Association's Team Academic Champions Program.
"We are really pleased for our spring sports programs," Steamboat Springs Athletics Director Steve Moos said. "It's great that four out of our six programs received that recognition."
The Steamboat Springs High School girls soccer team led the list with a cumulative grade point average of 3.53 this season.
The girls tennis team was also recognized after its members posted a 3.5 GPA for the spring season. The girls track team came in at 3.24 and the girls lacrosse team also posted high marks with a cumulative 3.21 GPA.
All of the team members met the minimum requirement of 3.20 GPAs to be listed by CHSAA, they all have also been nominated for the Spring Team Academic Award, which will be given out later this season.
"All of these teams are so great on the field, on the track and on the tennis court. But to be this successful in the classroom is also exactly what we are aiming for," Moos said.
The Team Academic Champion programs are designed to provide recognition for those teams or organizations that maintain high group GPAs, regardless of their win-loss records. Each team or group that meets the established standard is recognized with certificate for the individuals in the group. The team or group in each classification of each activity that posted the highest cumulative GPA will receive a state championship plaque.
Academic state champions are crowned at three points during the school year fall, winter and spring and honored at designated state championships.
