Federal Way in top six for Scholastic Cup

Federal Way High School is the No. 6 school in the state in the Class 4A Scholastic Cup, a new year-long program designed by the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) and awarded to the top school in each of the five WIAA classifications.

The Scholastic Cup is emblematic of the top interscholastic programs in Washington that display excellence in academics, sportsmanship and athletic performances throughout the school year.

The Scholastic Cup is awarded to the schools that compile the highest Scholastic Cup points based on their participation and finish at the WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington State Championships.

The top eight schools in each of the WIAA Academic State Championship categories and classifications also receive Scholastic Cup points. In an ongoing effort to promote sportsmanship, the association incorporated a sportsmanship component into the WIAA Scholastic Cup award. Schools receive Scholastic Cup points for displaying outstanding sportsmanship throughout the school year. Schools with no more than one student or coach ejections in all varsity sports for the entire school year will receive 25 Scholastic Cup points.

Schools lose Scholastic Cup points on a progressive basis for their second, third and fourth varsity player or coach ejections throughout the school year. Schools with five or more ejections are disqualified from the Scholastic Cup competition.
