The Scholastic Cup is the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association's (WIAA) most prestigious annual school award.  The year-long competition recognizes the top school in each of the six WIAA classifications based on academic, athletic and sportsmanship excellence.  Points are awarded by a school’s finish in each of the WIAA State Championships and Academic State Championships.  Due to the cancellation of spring sports during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s winners include points scored during the fall and winter seasons.  In addition to SGS as the 2B winner, local high schools Mt. Spokane (3A) and Central Valley (4A) also won the Scholastic Cup for their classifications, each for the first time.  Read the Full Announcement from the WIAA website.

SGS Athletic Director Ryan Peplinski reports:
We have decided to postpone Spring Sports at Saint George's School.  We are hearing of neighboring school districts and our opponents doing the same thing.  Every school district must make their own decisions, but we want to make sure we keep our community as safe as possible.  Since this is a fluid situation, we are not sure if/when we will be able to resume practices or contests.  The Athletic Directors in our league will discuss option to continue into post season if we are able to when play resumes.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact
