|5A||North Salem||Girls Cross Country||The Vikings are No. 3 in the OSAAtoday coaches poll and have five runners ranked among the top 10 of the Mid-Willamette Conference and the top 34 in 5A. They have a combined unweighted GPA of 3.97, including two salutatorian candidates and four valedictorian candidates. They have volunteered to help at multiple community races, including the Willamette Valley Marathon. They help each spring with a campus beautification project coordinated by team leadership.|
|4A||Seaside||Football||The Seagulls are off to a 5-0 start and are No. 1 in the OSAA power rankings and OSAAtoday coaches poll, averaging a 4A-best 55.4 points per game. They also worked as a team to clean barracks at the state’s largest cross country meet – the 3 Course Challenge at Camp Rilea in Warrenton – and volunteered to manage the field and operate the chains and clocks for the Seaside Kids Inc. youth football jamboree for teams grades 3-6.|
|3A||St. Mary's||Volleyball||The Crusaders are 11th in the OSAA power rankings, higher than they have finished in the last seven seasons. The two-time reigning 3A academic state champions continue to excel in the classroom with rigorous schedules. The team, which last year donated $1,500 to the local breast cancer screening center, is on its way to match or surpass that amount this year. They volunteer at the local hospital, organize events for their church and tutor younger students.|
|2A||Central Linn||Football||The Cobras, 3-7 last season, are off to a 4-1 start. They have been even more impactful off the field, providing 1,200 community services hours to the Brownsville-Halsey-Shedd area. They have helped people move, painted the school parking lot and provided instruction for youth players. Their new character development program – Men of Central Linn – requires them to be men of class, character and commitment.|
|1A||Imbler||Football||The Panthers, who moved from 2A to 1A this season, are off to a 4-1 start in their transition to the eight-man game.

|October 2018||6A||David Douglas||Boys Soccer||Finished the season with a 13-3-2 record, while accomplishing many feats. They won the school's first Mt. Hood Conference title and made it all the way to the semifinals in the state playoffs. In October, they outscored opponents 20-5.|

They volunteer regularly at the Columbia Gorge Marathon and also participate in trail clean-up days at Post Canyon and Indian Creek Trails. The girls also coach the Hood River elementary XC teams.|
|4A||Philomath||Volleyball||On the very first day of practice, long-time assistant coach Liz Dooley passed away suddenly. The team honored Liz in various ways throughout the season: making tee shirts, chanting her name before each match, and one player even began a major project to build the sand courts Liz always wanted for the program. They will be dedicated in her name. Despite the tragedy, they held a 3.89 GPA and earned a spot in the state playoffs.|
|3A||South Umpqua||Volleyball||Finishing the season with a 19-5 record, the Lancers tied for 1st in Far West League and finished in 3rd place at the State Championships. The team earned Academic All-State honors with a 3.64 GPA. Most of the girls are multi-sport athletes and leaders in their school and community.|
|2A||Jefferson||Football||Jefferson had a very successful season, finishing with an 8-2 record and earning the 9th seed in the 2A State Championships. From the nomination: "None of our athletes struggle academically and have volunteered at numerous business throughout the community. A classic underdog story of a team who has spent the last 9 years winning hardly any games. They've worked so hard."|
|1A||St. Stephens Academy||Boys Cross Country||The team finished in first place at the 1A/2A SD-1 District Championships, capping off an unprecedented season for this young program. St. Stephens fielded their first XC team in 2012, and has only had one runner make it to State as an individual in 2015. At Districts, six Archers placed on the All-District team and they finished the regular season ranked 4th in the OSAAtoday Coaches Poll. This team has also won the Fall 2018-19 Academic All-State 1A team award with a collective 3.94 GPA.|
|November 2018||6A||Clackamas||Girls Soccer||The Cavaliers finshed the season with a 15-3-1 record, reaching the state title game for the first time since 2012. Along the way, they won the Mt. Hood Conference with a perfect 7-0 league record. They also earned Academic All-State honors with a 3.65 team GPA.|
|5A||Crook County||Boys Cross Country||After moving up a classification, from 4A to 5A, the Cowboys still won their district and finished 2nd at the OSAA Cross Country Championships. They also earned Academic All-State honors with a 3.27 team GPA.|
|4A||Banks||Football||The Braves won the 4A State Championship, the first state title of any boys sport in school history. They also were League Champions and 4th in Academic All-State. They run the little guy football camp, setting good examples and being good role models for the community.|
|3A||Burns||Boys Cross Country||The team won the 3A championship for the first time in school history. Nearly every single individual on the team finished with many PRs, including the 3A State Champion Individual winner, Emmett Klus. The boys, who all but one are multi-sport athletes, also excel as students with an overall academic GPA of 3.77. Both the boy's and girl's teams have involved themselves in community projects over the past couple of years including painting a community member's house, cleaning up and painting playground equipment at the local little league fields, and serving for a local youth non-profit.|
|2A||Kennedy||Football||Won the first Football State Championship in school history. Kennedy, the number 10 seed, is believed to be the lowest seed number to win a state title. The team was 6th in 2A for Academic All-State with a combined 3.13 team GPA. The athletes consistently volunteer and help out in the community, including the town's annual Oktoberfest.|
|1A||Days Creek||Volleyball||The Wolves finished the season 21-10, won the Skyline League, and reached the State Quarterfinals. These young women are involved in multiple sports and extra curricular activities throughout the year and maintain excellent grades. The players and coaching staff truly understand what it is to be a community and how community takes care of one another. This is evident in their "Dig It" volleyball game that benefits local Breast Cancer Awareness and when there is a need in our community they pull together and assist whomever needs it.|

About This Award
The OSAA Cup began in 1999 as a way to recognize overall excellence by schools in academics, activities and athletics. The award honors a school's students, teachers, coaches and the entire school community. The Oregonian sponsored the cup from 2002-2017. The cup is currently sponsored by Pacific Office Automation as part of their increased focus on supporting Oregon's high school community.
Schools earn points based on their participation and finish in OSAA State Championships and for Top 10 finishes in the OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Program. A sportsmanship component, whereby schools are awarded points each season for having no ejections, is included as well. The points are updated and released at the end of Fall and Winter seasons and totaled at the end of the year. The school earning the highest points in each classification receives a commemorative trophy from Pacific Office Automation and the OSAA.
OSAA Cup Point System
The OSAA Cup recognizes overall school excellence in academics, activities, athletics and sportsmanship. The guiding force behind these point breakdowns is that every school that has a team or individual qualify for our state championships deserves point recognition. The amount of points is meant to be equitable across all activities with differences based on the number of teams and/or individuals participating. Teams that win a state championship will earn the same points regardless of the activity.
Schools receive points for having teams participate in the OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State program. Schools receive 25 points for a team with a 3.0+ average but not in the Top 10. Schools with teams in the Top 10 in an activity receive points using the scoring breakdown listed above. The overall winner in an activity receives 200 points. Schools with teams that finish atop a classification but not overall receive 175 points. Ties for the overall winner or first place in a classification are awarded the same points. All other ties are split between the places. 50% of all academic points earned will be counted toward the final OSAA Cup standings.
A sportsmanship component was added to the calculations in 2001-2002. Schools receive 200 points per season (Fall, Winter, Spring) for having no ejections. 100 points is subtracted from a school's total for each varsity ejection of a player or coach.
Scoring for Team Sports, Individual Sports, and Activities with Team Standings
|1st Place||200 Points|
|2nd Place||150 Points|
|3rd Place||140 Points|
|4th Place||120 Points|
|5th Place||110 Points|
|6th Place||100 Points|
|7th Place||90 Points|
|8th Place||80 Points|
|9th Place||75 Points|
|10th Place||70 Points|

|14th Place||45 Points|
|15th Place||40 Points|
|16th Place||35 Points|
|17th+ Place||25 Points|
|3rd-4th Places||130 Points|
|5th-8th Places||95 Points|
|7th-8th Places||85 Points|
|9th-16th Places||55 Points|
Individuals in Individual Activities
Each individual who qualifies for the state championships in Cross Country, Swimming, Wrestling, Speech, Solo Music, Golf, Tennis, and Track & Field receives an automatic 10 points for his/her school, up to a maximum of 25 points for a school in an activity. Relay teams in Swimming and Track & Field get 10 points total, not 10 per relay member. Individual participants in Golf and Cross Country can earn additional points for a high finish, (30% of what a team would earn for that place in that event.) For example, an individual placing first in a golf championship receives 60 points for his/her school (60 points is 30% of 200 points.)
Leveling the Playing Field
Similar to scoring systems in other states, we don't want the winning school to just be the school that offers the most activities. For this reason we limit the number of events for which a school can earn points each season (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Once a school has reached the maximum number of events in a particular season, we delete the events in which they scored the least amount of points to reach the maximum number. Limits vary by classification as many schools in lower classifications don't offer every activity. For example a 5A school earning points in 12 different activities in the Fall will have its two lowest point totals dropped for that season. Dropped points from one season can be applied to another season up to the maximum number of activities.

All graduating seniors in the Scholar Program are eligible to apply for one of six college scholarships.

OSAA Sportsmanship Award
About This Award
Beginning in the spring of 2018, the OSAA Sportsmanship Committee, along with the OAOA, implemented a sportsmanship award aimed at improving the relationship between our schools and athletic officials.
One of the leading causes of the declining number of game officials is poor sportsmanship directed towards them at athletic contests. We know not all of their experiences are negative and this award gives them the opportunity to highlight those positive experiences. Officials have the opportunity to submit a form after every contest and select which team they would like to nominate.
At the end of each season, the committee chooses a winner for each sport. That program is given a banner to hang in the gym and earns 100 OSAA Cup points for their school!
Congratulations to all schools nominated this fall!
