Renton athletes recognized for academics

The Hazen Girls Cross Country Team placed first among the district’s teams with a combined 3.8 GPA.

Renton School District student athletes have been recognized by the state’s athletics association for hard work in the classroom as well as on the field or in the pool.

Forty of the district’s fall sports teams have won the Dairy Farmers of Washington/Les Schwab Tires Scholastic Award presented in association with the Washington Interscholastic Athletics Association, as top teams in the state to excel in sports while also maintaining high combined team grade point averages.

Teams with a GPA of 3.5 or higher qualify for the Outstanding Team Award; teams with a combined GPA of 3.00-3.49 qualify for the Distinguished Team Award.

Seventeen district high school teams received Outstanding honors for maintaining a near-perfect 3.5-3.8 GPA. Twenty-three additional teams from Hazen, Lindbergh and Renton high schools also won Distinguished Awards with team GPAs above 3.0.

The Hazen High Girls Varsity Cross Country Team (pictured) maintained a near-perfect combined team GPA of over 3.8, placing them first among the district’s fall sports teams.
