From STAFF REPORTS
Twelve members of the Valle Catholic High School cross team were recently named to the Missouri Track and Cross Country Coaches Association academic all-state team.
This is a yearly honor the MTCCCA hands out to runners across the state.
In order to qualify for the academic all-state team, students must be nominated by their head coach, have competed in a state series meet and meet additional academic criteria.
The criteria is a score of 25 or higher on the ACT, a score of 1,150 or higher on the SAT, or a cumulative grade-point average of 3.6 or higher at the end of the fall semester.
The student’s GPA is both non-rounded and non-weighted.
Samer Zoughaib, who was honored by the MTCCCA last December, serves as the Warriors coach.
