What could be better than a strong athletic team winning an academic award? Winning it in dominant fashion! The Kent City girls’ track & field team was just announced as the top team in Division 3 with a PERFECT 4.0 grade point average (GPA). No other team in any division who qualified for team state can boast of a 4.0 GPA.
ACADEMIC ALL-STATE TRACK TEAMS
The grades were calculated by averaging the top 12 individuals who competed at team state held at Clare this year. The Lady Eagles had qualified for the team state meet and finished 6th, but now sit atop the heap academically.
Individually, Lauren Freeland, Kylie Brown, Taryn Preston, Layla Martini, Carley Denhof, and Jasmine Weeks earned academic all-state honors by virtue of competing at the individual MHSAA state finals at Jenison with an impressive GPA.
