All nine of our TSSAA sports* were recognized through the TSSAA Academic Achievement Award program for the fall, winter, and spring seasons. In the fall, our soccer, cross country, golf, and volleyball teams all earned Distinguished Scholastic Achievement recognition for having a team GPA of 3.25 or higher. Now that the second semester is complete, we know that our basketball and softball teams have earned Outstanding Scholastic Achievement recognition after completing the spring semester with a team grade point average of at least 3.0. Bowling, tennis, and track earned Distinguished Scholastic Achievement after completing the spring with a team GPA of at least 3.25.
In addition to these team awards, the TSSAA also recognizes individual achievement for athletes who complete the semester with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. In the fall, 38 GPS student-athletes reached this mark. In the spring, we had 62.
"I am so proud of all of our student-athletes for their tremendous work in their sports and in the classroom,” said Jay Watts, GPS Director of Athletics. “In the face of so many obstacles and distractions, not the least of which was COVID-19, our girls truly maximized their opportunities this year and achieved at an incredibly high level. I am thankful to be at a place like GPS where girls can have the very best experience in athletics and academics.”
