LOS ALAMITOS – The winners of the 31st Annual CIF Southern Section – FORD Academic Awards program were announced recently. The team awards, based on a cumulative grade-point average, are awarded in 23 team sports. Entries from 1,730 teams were received this year. Twenty-six different CIF-SS member schools are represented amongst the team winners. The annual academic awards program is sponsored by the Southern California FORD Dealers with assistance from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

To be considered, teams must have a minimum of 5 student-athletes with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA average (4.0 scale) in the first semester or first 2 quarters of 2016-17 school year. The highest team GPA in each sport category by enrollment determines the winner. Schools are divided into two enrollment categories, 1500 and above and 1499 and below. The team with the highest GPA in each enrollment category for each sport receives the award. The first place teams receive a banner to commemorate their achievement. All teams who participated and qualified receive Academic Award certificates for their student- athletes.

Additionally, 187 student-athletes have each been named the individual “Student-Athlete of the Year” by their school. Each CIF-SS member school is entitled to name a male and a female “Student-Athlete of the Year” that must be a senior having maintained a minimum of a 3.5 GPA (4.0 scale) over the past three years, in addition to earning a letter in at least one varsity sport and participating in extracurricular activities (music, drama, service groups, etc.).

As part of the Academic Award program, the Women’s Southern California Golf Association (WSCGA) annually recognizes the top three Girl’s Golf academic teams in each enrollment category with financial grants. This year’s WSCGA grant receiving teams are St. Margaret’s Episcopal, Pasadena Poly, Mayfield, Villa Park, San Marcos and Chino. The academic team winners and golf grant recipients were honored in a pregame ceremony before the Angels game versus the Oakland A’s Tuesday, April 25.
