Clarke County Public Schools has won the Region B Principals Cup competition. The Principals Cup competition determines the best all around school among the 24 “Single A” schools in the VHSL region. Points are awarded in 20 athletic and academic activities throughout the school year to determine the winner.
According to CCHS Principal Dr. John Werner, the competition was created four years ago by the school principals in Region B. Scoring for the event is based on VHSL sanctioned academic and sporting events. Sports scoring categories include district, regional and state championships in traditional sports including baseball, basketball, soccer and other sports. Academic scoring categories include “1-Act Play”, Scholastic Bowl and Forensics competitions as well as other events subject to VHSL scoring rules.
Clarke County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Michael Murphy was very pleased by the efforts of both students and staff to win the prestigious award.
“Last year’s winner, George Mason, only scored 59.5 points so our 83 points is spectacular.” Murphy said. “It’s always exciting to see what our kids can accomplish and to remember that our athletes are also scholars and our scholars are also athletes. We have an incredible amount of diversity and talent in Clarke County and we’re proud of every one of our students.”
Clarke County will have the honor of displaying the Principals Cup during the 2010 – 2011 school year.
