Evergreen Lutheran in Des Moines was named the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s (WIAA) 2002-03 Class B Scholastic Cup Champions. The WIAA released the final Scholastic Cup standings Thursday morning. The honor is the governing body of high school sports in the state’s most prestigious annual academic award.

The Scholastic Cup Championship competition is a yearlong program designed by the WIAA and awarded to the top school in each of the five school classifications. The Scholastic Cup is emblematic of the top interscholastic programs in Washington which display excellence in academics, sportsmanship and athletic performances throughout the school year.

The Eagles retained the Class B championship by scoring 915 points — a 335-point margin of victory over second place Almira/Coulee-Hartline.

Evergreen Lutheran won five academic state championships (band, choir, girls track, softball, girls soccer), each earning the school 100 Scholastic Cup points.

The girls volleyball, boys track, girls track and boys basketball teams all earned Scholastic Cup points for their strong finishes during the WIAA state championships in those sports.

Ten of Evergreen Lutheran’s interscholastic programs earned academic points in the academic state championship program by having one of the top-eight team grade-point averages in their respective sports/activities in the B classification.

Overall, 11 of Evergreen Lutheran’s interscholastic programs earned Scholastic Cup points during the 2002-03 school year. Evergreen Lutheran also won the 2001-02 Scholastic Cup.
