OSAA Cup Winner / SC WON!!! EAGLES DO IT AGAIN!!
Santiam Christian has won the OSAA Cup, formerly The Oregonian Cup, before. Ten times before, in fact. For the past nine years we’ve been in the top five every year. Usually within just a few points, first place was just out of reach. We’re thrilled to receive this top honor again this year!
The OSAA Cup is really a recognition of overall excellence. It evaluates EVERY school in the state, regardless of size, based on, not only athletic performance, but in a variety of other activities, as well. It takes into account the entire student population and the overall percentage of students who participate in extra-curricular activities. Then, it looks at the grade point average of each of those students who participate. It also looks at sportsmanship, as well as win-loss ratios. For every year since this award started in 1999, Santiam Christian’s students have ranked in the top five of the state for our size. THAT’S A BIG DEAL!!!
It might sound like we’re tooting our own horn, and we are a bit, but the real stars of this award are our students. This is THEIR AWARD! It is based 100% on their achievement and motivation to be the best they can be, in the classroom AND in their chosen activities.
In a year that has been overshadowed by disappointments and frustration, 2020 will now go down in SC history for another reason. WE ARE EXTREMELY PROUD!! This award is earned by EVERY student who participates.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!
ATTAWAY EAGLES! ATTAWAY!!
