COULEE CITY- The WIAA Scholastic Cup is given annually to the school that performs the best in the classroom and on the field or court. Points are assigned to teams on how high they placed in the state tournament along with how their athlete’s GPA is in the classroom.
It’s impossible to win the Scholastic Cup by just winning state titles or just scoring well on tests, athletes must do both and for the third year in a row the Almira-Coulee-Hartline Warriors have brought home the Scholastic Cup.
The Warriors took home state titles in baseball and softball and finished second in football and volleyball. In the classroom, their football team and wrestling team finished with the highest grades in the 1B class, while their cheer team, softball team and boys’ basketball team finished in second.
Coulee City finished with 1,035 points, more than 300 points higher than the second-place finisher, Evergreen Lutheran. It’s the highest point total the Warriors have ever had. This marks the fourth time in school history ACH has won the Scholastic Cup.
Their conference rivals, Odessa, finished in third place.
