“For over 25 years the UHSAA has presented the Academic All-State Award to recognize those students who have excelled in the classroom as well as in athletic competition. Individuals are selected for this award on the basis of their athletic ability and academic proficiency. With over 85,000 students participating in high school activities, this award is the most prestigious honor the UHSAA presents to senior students.” -uhsaa.org
This year, the list of Academic All State Honorees includes four PHS students- Kate Hunter (cross country), Spencer Jorgensen (football), Chad Paxman (football), and Abby Moore (soccer). Congrats to each!
