Most people are well aware of our athletic program’s success on the field but what makes us even more proud is the success our kids have in the classroom! That success is measured by how well we fare in the FHSAA’s Academic Team Championship every fall, winter and spring season. This year, our first two seasons were sensational but our spring sports teams have literally set a new standard for us. For the first time since the program began, Dr. Phillips had 12 of its 13 spring sports teams qualify, meaning 12  teams earned a cumulative un-weighted grade point average of 3.0 or above. To show you how hard our kids work, the one team that did not make the cut missed it by just 58 thousandths of a point (2.942). Headlining the pack was Men’s Tennis (3.655) followed by Softball (3.532) and Women’s Tennis (3.524). While it stands to reason that it’s more difficult for sports with far greater numbers to make the cut, that did not stop Women’s Track and Field from getting in at 3.195, their highest team GPA since we started keeping score. Also on board for the first time is Men’s Weightlifting at 3.120. A tremendous academic year across the board so congratulations to our students for working hard and to our coaches for fostering the high expectations we have at DP!
