WILSONVILLE — The kids at Wallowa are not only good athletes, they are good students.

After the final points were tallied, Wallowa High School surged during the spring to win the 1A Oregonian Cup.

The Oregonian Cup combines athletic success with academic performance, combining a school's placement at state with its team's grade point averages. Schools also receive points for sportsmanship.

Wallowa won with 1,925 points, moving past second-place Damascus Christian, which held the lead after the winter term.

Powder Valley, which won a state championship in football and came in second in girls basketball and second in in girls track, finished third in the Oregonian Cup with 1,760 points.

In fact, Powder Valley and Wallowa were the only public schools among the top six. The other four top schools at the 1A level were private.

Last year, Wallowa came in third and Powder Valley fifth in the Oregonian Cup standings.

Enterprise came in second at the 2A level, finishing with 2,465 points, behind just Santiam Christian of Corvallis. Again, Enterprise was just one of two public schools among the top six.

Enterprise's best athletic showing was in cross country. Enterprise had the best overall showing of boys and girls cross country combined of any school at the 2A level.

In 3A, La Grande, the 2003 Oregonian Cup winner, finished third with 3,225 points, behind first-place Marist and second-place North Bend. La Grande had state champions in boys' swimming and boys' golf.

Other local schools included in the Oregonian Cup standings are:


13, Union, 1,655

38, Imbler, 1,025

43, Joseph, 975

75, Elgin, 523


26, Cove, 820
