Triad wins OSAA academic award


Wilsonville, OR – The OSAA and the Dairy Farmers of Oregon have teamed up for the 15th year to sponsor the Dairy Farmers of Oregon Academic All-State Award. This award recognizes excellence in the classroom throughout the state.

“As an organization we are very proud of this award because it shows all the hard work and commitment student athletes demonstrate in the classroom,” said Tom Welter, OSAA Executive Director.

“This awards program continues our tradition of celebrating Oregon’s student athletes,” said Pete Kent, executive director of the Oregon Dairy Products Commission. “Their efforts are impressive and we’re proud of their recognition.”

The groups listed below earned the highest team GPA in the entire state for their activity, regardless of classification. The winning team in each Spring activity will be presented a plaque in honor of outstanding scholastic achievement and team members will receive a “got milk?” sweatshirt and a certificate. Additionally, the Dairy Farmers of Oregon help recognize the achievement of all Top 10 teams in each classification by providing each student a lapel pin. More than 6,500 lapel pins will be distributed to Spring activities teams throughout the state in the coming weeks.
