The other classification champions are: Almira Coulee Hartline (1B), Northwest Christian (Colbert) (2B), Sehome (2A), Lakeside (Seattle) (3A) and Mead (4A).
King’s earned a third of its 1,235 points thanks to five academic state championships from the forensics, orchestra, girls soccer, boys track and field and girls track and field teams. In state championships, King’s earned a second-place finish in girls cross country and third-place finishes in girls track and field and volleyball. It is the 10th Scholastic Cup for King’s and the first since 2015-16.
The Scholastic Cup is the WIAA’s most prestigious annual school award. The year-long competition recognizes the top school in each of the six WIAA classifications based on academic, athletic and sportsmanship excellence. Points are awarded by a school’s finish in each of the state championships and academic state championships.
