Acorns Getting it Done in Classroom

Morgan Hill – The Live Oak High School Athletic Department announced that grades for the fall sports teams have a grade point average predominantly better than 3.0.

“We are extremely proud of the effort our student-athletes made not only on the playing fields but more importantly in the classroom,” said Live Oak Athletic Director Mark Cummins.

It is the philosophy of the Live Oak Athletic Department that participation in athletics is an integral part of the educational process.

“Our coaching staff does a tremendous job of making sure our student-athletes’ priorities are in the right place,” Cummins said.

This past quarter grading period the overall grade point average of all fall sports student-athletes at Live Oak was 3.12.

An additional 69 percent, 11 of 16, of all fall sports teams had a team grade point average of better than 3.0. Of the student athletes, 11 percent achieved a 4.0 grade point average or better and 53 percent achieved a 3.0 grade point average or higher.

Overall, 19 percent of the Acorn student body competed on a fall sports team.

“Not only were our student-athletes competing at a high level on the field against top competition, but our student-athletes were also raising the bar in the classroom,” Cummins said.

With winter sports underway, Cummins added, “Our winter sport coaches will push our student-athletes to reach their potential not only on the fields and courts, but in the classroom as well. They will continue the strong tradition Live Oak has established over the past 100 years both athletically and academically.”
