For the second year in a row Richfield High School finished in first place of the Director’s Cup standings. The award is a combination of excellence on the playing field and in the classroom.
The Director’s Cup is awarded to the school achieving the highest cumulative point total in each school’s size classification, state tournament results in all sports, as well as the successful implementation of the Raise the Bar sportsmanship initiative.
The top 16 teams in each sport and size classification receive points based on how their team’s GPA rank compared to other schools in their classification. Points are based on how each school’s teams finished in the Utah High School Activities Association’s state championship events and their respective team’s grade point averages, which are submitted to the Utah Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.
“We are very proud of the state tournament results of our respective teams, but even more proud of the academic strength of our varsity participants, which has resulted in RHS taking first place for the second year in a row of the 3A Director’s Cup,” said Richard Barton, RHS’s assistant principal and athletic director. “It is attributed to the education based focus of our coaches and student athletes.”
