Santana wins Academic League district competition, hosts awards dinner

"Santana takes top spot as GUHSD\'s 2016-17 Varsity Champions."

Last spring, the undefeated Santana Sultans varsity team represented the Grossmont Union High School District in the County Academic League Finals. 

After a close and heated match with the Grossmont Foothullers, coached by Christina Alley, the Santana Sultans, coached by Brooke Crocker and Rebecca Short, managed to get a lead and win the competition with a final score of 75 to 74.  

As the 2016-17 Varsity GUHSD first place winner, Santana High School got the honor of hosting the 2017 Annual Academic League Awards Dinner in March. More than 300 players and their families attended and shared in an awards banquet, which honored and thanked the students, parents, organizers, moderators, and coaches of the Academic League program.

The purpose of the National Academic League is to encourage and recognize academic athletes who show a passion for knowledge and exhibit the ability to problem solve, think critically, work in teams, and strategize in a fun and competitive setting.
