Hazen runners are academic champs
December 6, 2012
Hazen High School’s varsity girls cross-country team has been named academic state champions, thanks to the group’s combined grade point average of 3.958 through the fall sports season.
The award, sponsored by the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association, the Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires, recognizes the team with the highest GPA among all Washington high schools in their enrollment classification.
The team, led by Coach Sarah Menaul, received its award at the state’s cross-country championship in Pasco Nov. 2-3.
“We try our best to excel in class, on the track and in all aspects of our lives,” Vicki Tang, the team’s captain, said.
