Academic Class D All-State Champions: The Shamrock Women’s Cross-Country Team

On Thursday the St. Patrick Women’s Cross-Country team was awarded First place in Class D, for Women’s Cross-Country teams, for their academic prowess. Specifically, the Shamrock Women posted a combined Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.902. If there were a photo finish for academics, like there is for Cross-Country meets, the Shamrock Women finished .04 GPA points better than second place Adrian Lenawee Christian who has a combined GPA of 3.862.

In a time when winning games and championships on the field is often considered the pinnacle of success for a sports team, the Shamrock Cross-Country Women, demonstrate that there are other ways to be Champions. The Portland Beacon congratulates these women for their successful season and their academic excellence.
