Archbishop Murphy wins WIAA’s 2A Scholastic Cup

Here’s a press release I wanted to share:

Archbishop Murphy High School has won the 2009‐2010 2A Scholastic Cup, the WIAA’s most prestigious annual school award.

As noted on the WIAA website:

“The WIAA Scholastic Cup recognizes performance in the classroom as well as on the playing surface. Schools that finish at the top of their respective classifications in state athletic competition receive points, as do schools that finish at the top in team academic performance. Sportsmanship is also a factor, with substantial points deducted for ejections from contests. At the end of the year, the school with the most points in their classification will be awarded the prestigious Scholastic Cup!”

AMHS had four 2A State Academic Champions this year: Girls Swimming with a team GPA of 3.718; Choir with a group GPA of 3.659; Softball with a team GPA of 3.762 and Boys Golf with a team GPA of 3.635. Each of those contributed 100 points to the AMHS Scholastic Cup total of 1520. In addition, the Girls’ Soccer state championship in November earned the school 100 points. For a complete list of AMHS teams and points earned, click here (then scroll down to “2A Totals” and click on our school name).

In a school-wide assembly on Friday, June 11, WIAA Assistant Executive Director Cindy Adsit, accompanied by WIAA interns Mary Kate Zellers and Peter Ajang, presented the Scholastic Cup to AMHS Principal Fran Ennis. As Ms. Adsit named each team and their points earned, members of those teams stood up in the bleachers. By the end of the roll call, every AMHS student was standing, cheering each other on for their great accomplishment.

Ms. Molly Stubrud, AMHS ASB Advisor, finished the assembly with a challenge for next school year, “Let’s make it two in a row!”
