Eleven Morgan High athletes who participated in fall sports were recently named to their sport’s respective Academic All-State teams at the conclusion of each fall sport. Each student-athlete was recognized with a certificate from the Utah High School Activities Association and The Deseret News. UHSAA Executive Director Ryan Cuff stated, “With over 100,000 students participating in high school activities, this award is the most prestigious honor the UHSAA presents to senior students.”  

Students who earn this award must be seniors and have a 4.0 unweighted GPA or index score that combines GPA and ACT/SAT scores to qualify. Athletes from each sport who meet the requirements are named to the All-State team for the sport and classification. 

Morgan’s eleven athletes represent seven different fall sports and hours of study and practice. Head volleyball coach Liz Wiscombe noted regarding her senior volleyball player, “Hadlee worked hard in the classroom and also on the court. She was a total teammate who made others better around her. Her teammates and coaches loved her.” 

Congratulations to these young people on their academic and athletic success!
