Saint George's achievements in winter sports (boys basketball 2nd in State, girls 3rd) and winter activities (choir and debate 1st in State for GPA), the school is leading Northwest Christian and all other 2B schools statewide for the prestigious WIAA Scholastic Cup.  See the Top 20 Schools & SGS' Awards that have put us on top so far!

The WIAA Scholastic Cup recognizes both academic and athletic performance.  Schools that finish at the top of their respective classifications in state athletic competition receive points, as do schools that finish at the top in team academic performance.  Sportsmanship is also a factor, with substantial points deducted for ejections from contests.  At the end of the year, the school with the most points in their classification will be awarded the prestigious Scholastic Cup.  In the 15 years that the cup has been awarded, SGS has the most Top 5 finishes (11) and 2nd place finishes (6) of any school in the state.  But SGS has only won the Scholastic Cup once.  

So finish the spring strong, Dragons, and we can be the top 2B school in Washington state!
