Selah, WA-

For the fourth consecutive year, the Selah High School Varsity Football Team, under the leadership of head coach Scott Ditter, has been named the Washington Academic State Champions for having the highest grade point average (GPA) among teams at the 2A level. The award is presented by the Washington State Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA). In earning the recognition during this 2015 campaign the football team had an average GPA of 3.401, and will be honored during the state championships in December.

“I am very proud of the athletes and coaches involved with the Viking Football Program,” said Mike Lewis, Selah High School Athletic Director. “To receive this award for four consecutive years exemplifies the commitment to excellence and accomplishment that has been established for the program. These athletes work very hard on the field and in the classroom and represent the District’s core purpose of ensuring high levels of learning for students.”

Each athletic season the WIAA State Academic Championship is presented to the sport specific team with the highest grade point average in each high school division. The back-to-back-to-back-to-back academic crowns for the Viking Football Team highlights the success of Selah’s student-athletes and athletic programs which have been honored for academic success by the WIAA.
