Bear Creek captures its eighth overall Scholastic Cup
The Bear Creek School continued its run atop the state 2B classification by earning its eighth overall Scholastic Cup, which was presented to the school by members of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) and Washington Army National Guard at an assembly on June 12. The Grizzlies mark of 1,515 points puts them second all time in the 2B classification point total. The Grizzlies captured their seventh cup in the 2B classification.
The Scholastic Cup is the WIAA's most prestigious annual school award. The yearlong competition recognizes the top school in each of the six WIAA classifications based on academic, athletic and sportsmanship excellence. Points are awarded in each of the WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington/Les Schwab Tires state championships and also for academic state championships.
In an ongoing effort to promote sportsmanship, the association incorporated a component that gives schools 25 points for no more than one student or coach ejection. Schools lose points on a progressive basis for a second, third or fourth varsity player or coach ejection, and are disqualified from the scholastic cup if a fifth ejection is received.
"This is an exciting time for the Association and for the member schools that won the WIAA/Washington Army National Guard scholastic cup," WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said. "The award recognizes the programs that capture the true essence of excellence in athletics, academics and sportsmanship."
