West Linn spring sports teams place in OSAA Academic All-State

Each sports season, Oregon high schools tally up and average the grade point averages (GPAs) of students on spring sports teams. This year, eight of West Linn’s spring sports teams placed in the top ten of all the 46 6A schools in the competition.

The high school’s top placers were choir and the boys track team. The boys track team achieved a third place ranking with an average GPA of 3.55.

Choir placed sixth in state with an average GPA of 3.45. The girls tennis team, orchestra, girls track team, and softball team all achieved seventh place with average GPAs of 3.7, 3.51, 3.69, and 3.6, respectively. The boys tennis team placed tenth with an average GPA of 3.54. Speech & debate placed tenth as well, with an average GPA of 3.67.

Last year West Linn only had five spring sports teams place – the boys tennis team tied 6th with four other schools with an average GPA of 3.62, the boys track team tied second with an average GPA of 3.55, the band tied fourth with two other schools with an average GPA of 3.57, the orchestra tied tenth with an average GPA of 3.49, and speech & debate team tied third with an average GPA of 3.78, which shows a vast improvement.
