The event was celebrated during a special luncheon which also included the various teams that exhibited the highest GPA for their individual seasons.

This year, a new category of Most Improved GPA was established and awarded to the Boys’ Football team, whose GPA rose by 2.5% to 86.3.

RBR Principal Risa Clay addressed the scholar athletes and stated, “We have created the Principal’s Cup, which recognizes, acknowledges and celebrates the teams that strive for excellence.  I am always so grateful to see you compete and succeed, but to see you compete academically makes me extra proud. You are true champions in every sense of the word.”
