California Interscholastic Federation announces team champions

Submitted By Rebecca Brutlag

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) recently announced the 28 state academic team champions for the 2011-2012 school year. The CIF State Academic Team Champions program was initiated in 1996 as a way to reward student sports teams with the highest collective grade-point-averages (GPAs), based on an unweighted 4.0 scale, in their respective sport.

Locally, the following were so honored:

Sport: Badminton
School/Section: Mission San Jose, Fremont/ North Coast
GPA: 3.80


Sport: Boys Volleyball
School/Section: Mission San Jose, Fremont/ North Coast
GPA: 3.75


Sport: Boys Track & Field
School/Section: Mission San Jose, Fremont/ North Coast
GPA: 3.73


Sport: Baseball
School/Section: Mission San Jose, Fremont/ North Coast
GPA: 3.69


Sport: Boys Wrestling
School/Section: Mission San Jose, Fremont/ North Coast
GPA: 3.65


CIF State Academic Team Champions will receive a banner, suitable for display in their school gym, to recognize this accomplishment. All nominees were their respective CIF Section (regional) academic team champions. Section offices forwarded their winners in all sports to the state office for consideration.

The Southern Section had 11 teams represented, followed by 10 teams for the North Coast Section. The Northern and Central Sections each had three teams, followed by San Francisco with one team represented.

Mission San Jose (baseball, boy's volleyball, boy's wrestling, badminton, boy's track and field) had five teams accomplish a state-high in team GPA, the most from any school.

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) was created in 1914 and is the governing body for high school sports in the state of California. CIF represents more than 1,500 public and private member schools and more than 750,000 student-athletes.
