Each member of a winning team receives a commemorative decal and a certificate. The school receives a plaque in honor of its team. Members of top ten schools in each activity at each classification are also recognized.

Submitting Nominations
Every season, each full member school has the option to submit a OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Nomination Form for each hosted activity.

School administrators can access these forms from the "My Account" page under the "Academic All-State" sub-tab.

On these forms, you will list the entire varsity team only. You do not include sub-varsity participants. Do not combine boys and girl teams, each activity has a separate form.

Use the most recent, unweighted, transcripted grades included on each student's transcript. Do not use cumulative GPA. Be sure to include all co-op students and their GPA from his/her cooperating school.

If a student's grades were not earned at your high school or cooperating high school during the previous transcripted grading period, please list his/her name and leave the GPA field blank. (For example: first term freshman, home school students, new exchange students, new transfer students.)

There must be a minimum of 5 students with a GPA entry in order to submit a nomination form.

About This Award

The OSAA Cup began in 1999 as a way to recognize overall excellence by schools in academics, activities and athletics. The award honors a school's students, teachers, coaches and the entire school community. The Oregonian sponsored the cup from 2002-2017. The cup is currently sponsored by Pacific Office Automation as part of their increased focus on supporting Oregon's high school community.

Schools earn points based on their participation and finish in OSAA State Championships and for Top 10 finishes in the OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Program. A sportsmanship component, whereby schools are awarded points each season for having no ejections, is included as well. The points are updated and released at the end of Fall and Winter seasons and totaled at the end of the year. The school earning the highest points in each classification receives a commemorative trophy from Pacific Office Automation and the OSAA.

OSAA Cup Point System

The OSAA Cup recognizes overall school excellence in academics, activities, athletics and sportsmanship. The guiding force behind these point breakdowns is that every school that has a team or individual qualify for our state championships deserves point recognition. The amount of points is meant to be equitable across all activities with differences based on the number of teams and/or individuals participating. Teams that win a state championship will earn the same points regardless of the activity.

Academics

Schools receive points for having teams participate in the OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State program. Schools receive 25 points for a team with a 3.0+ average but not in the Top 10. Schools with teams in the Top 10 in an activity receive points using the scoring breakdown listed above. The overall winner in an activity receives 200 points. Schools with teams that finish atop a classification but not overall receive 175 points. Ties for the overall winner or first place in a classification are awarded the same points. All other ties are split between the places. 50% of all academic points earned will be counted toward the final OSAA Cup standings.

Sportsmanship

A sportsmanship component was added to the calculations in 2001-2002. Schools receive 200 points per season (Fall, Winter, Spring) for having no ejections. 100 points is subtracted from a school's total for each varsity ejection of a player or coach.

Individuals in Individual Activities

Each individual who qualifies for the state championships in Cross Country, Swimming, Wrestling, Speech, Solo Music, Golf, Tennis, and Track & Field receives an automatic 10 points for his/her school, up to a maximum of 25 points for a school in an activity. Relay teams in Swimming and Track & Field get 10 points total, not 10 per relay member. Individual participants in Golf and Cross Country can earn additional points for a high finish, (30% of what a team would earn for that place in that event.) For example, an individual placing first in a golf championship receives 60 points for his/her school (60 points is 30% of 200 points.)

Leveling the Playing Field

4A 9 21 36
3A 7 15 24
2A 6 12 21
1A 4 10 12

Similar to scoring systems in other states, we don't want the winning school to just be the school that offers the most activities. For this reason we limit the number of events for which a school can earn points each season (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Once a school has reached the maximum number of events in a particular season, we delete the events in which they scored the least amount of points to reach the maximum number. Limits vary by classification as many schools in lower classifications don't offer every activity. For example a 5A school earning points in 12 different activities in the Fall will have its two lowest point totals dropped for that season. Dropped points from one season can be applied to another season up to the maximum number of activities.

2020-2021 Moda Heath Scholarship Recipients


Nina Takahashi - Southridge High School

Nina Takahashi participates in Dance/Drill as a member of the Southridge Hawkettes. As a three-year varsity member of the team, Nina has emerged as a leader on her team and in the larger school community. She was instrumental in the re-founding of the Asian & Pacific Islander Student Union (APISU) at Southridge, serving as President. The APISU has provided an outlet for Asian-American students, which has proven especially important after the rise of anti-Asian violence that coincided with Covid-19. She also served as a panel presenter this year at the Community-Wide Conversations Around Race that her school hosts annually. Nina participates in Student Government, as well. One school administrator describes Nina as “a team player, hard worker, and an individual that has a great understanding of the true values that lead to success while knowing the benefits from being engaged in her community.”

Tate Reese - Sunset High School

Tate Reese is a multi-sport athlete at Sunset, earning two varsity letters in Basketball and three in Tennis. He was voted in by his basketball teammates as captain for the 2021 season. Tate is also a member of the National Honor Society. His greatest impact, however, is felt as a peer buddy for students with developmental disabilities, which he began doing in middle school and continued through his senior year. He was able to combine his desire to help others and passion for basketball by volunteering for the Beaverton Hoop Stars. As many as 40 kids participate in a practice, all of whom have their own specific challenges and skill levels. Tate designed drills and activities that everyone could do, teaching how to dribble, pass, and shoot. Along the way, his goal was to demonstrate what it means to be a good sport and good teammate. Tate will attend Santa Clara University.

OnPoint Community Credit Union Scholar Program

About This Award

OnPoint Community Credit Union sponsors the Scholar Program, recognizing Scholar Athletes and Activity Scholars who are graduating seniors at OSAA member schools.

The Scholar Program recognizes graduating seniors who have achieved a 3.50 or higher unweighted cumulative GPA and earned a varsity letter in an OSAA-sanctioned sport or competed in an OSAA-sanctioned activity. Each qualifying, graduating senior receives a certificate of achievement from the OSAA and OnPoint Community Credit Union.

A student must meet all of the respective qualifications to receive a certificate for Scholar Athlete or Activity Scholar. Graduating seniors who earned varsity letters or competed in activities during freshman, sophomore, or junior years, but not during senior year are still eligible for the Scholar Program and can receive a certificate.

All graduating seniors in the Scholar Program are eligible to apply for one of six college scholarships - two winners will receive a $5,000 scholarship and four winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. Winners will be selected based on success in the classroom, leadership in the community, how participating in OSAA activities has either taught them a lesson or helped them achieve their goals and two letters of recommendation.

The 2022 Scholar Program scholarship application period will open on April 1. If you have questions, please contact ian@osaasp.com.

OSAA Sportsmanship Award

About This Award

Beginning in the spring of 2018, the OSAA Sportsmanship Committee, along with the OAOA, implemented a sportsmanship award aimed at improving the relationship between our schools and athletic officials.

One of the leading causes of the declining number of game officials is poor sportsmanship directed towards them at athletic contests. We know not all of their experiences are negative and this award gives them the opportunity to highlight those positive experiences. Officials have the opportunity to submit a form after every contest and select which team they would like to nominate.

At the end of each season, the committee chooses a winner for each sport. That program is given a banner to hang in the gym and earns 100 OSAA Cup points for their school!

NFHS Hall of Fame - Oregon Inductees

1982 Paul
McCall
McCall, who entered high school athletics as a coach in 1946, retired in 1980 after spending 22 years as director of athletics for Portland (Oregon) Public Schools – a system that includes 14 schools and nearly 25,000 students. McCall also gained recognition for a fund-raising drive that generated more than $230,000 from the community to offset the defeat of a school tax levy that threatened elimination of high school activities. He originated a program in conjunction with a medical association to provide injury clinics for coaches and school personnel, and encouraged the development of programs and funding for participation of girls long before Title IX.
1992 Danny Ainge Ainge played football, basketball and baseball at Eugene (Oregon) North High School and was equally successful in each. In his junior football season, Ainge was named all-league, all-state and Parade all-America as a wide receiver and defensive back. In baseball, Ainge played shortstop and hit .402, .448 and .500 in his three seasons. In his eventual professional sport, basketball, Ainge led his teams to the Oregon state championship in 1976 and 1977 with a combined record of 55-1. His basketball honors were numerous, including McDonald’s high school all-America. Ainge averaged more than 20 points per game at Brigham Young University and played and coached in the National Basketball Association.
1995 Mel
Renfro
Renfro was an outstanding two-sport star (football, track) at Portland (Oregon) Jefferson High School (1957-60), before his illustrious career with the Dallas Cowboys. Renfro helped the Jefferson football teams win 34 consecutive games, including two state championships and one runner-up finish. He set the Portland Interscholastic League single-game scoring record of 38 points and his season total of 242 points is also a PIL record. In track, Renfro set state records in the long jump (24-1) and low hurdles (18.9) and scored 31 points himself to help Jefferson to the 1960 track title.
2000 Steve Prefontaine Prefontaine, who was one of the nation’s most dominating track and cross country runners, broke the four-minute mile mark on nine occasions and set 14 American track records. He won two Oregon state cross country championships, as well as three state track championships. Prefontaine was named the Oregon high school athlete of the year in 1969, and continued his running career at the University of Oregon. Tragically killed in an automobile accident at age 24, his life story was told in two movies.
2004 Dr. Thad Stanford The first person from the field of sports medicine to be inducted in the Hall of Fame, Stanford is one of the leaders in promoting health and safety to high school studentathletes. He was one of the founders of the Oregon Medical Aspects of Sports Committee and served as its chair. In 2001, Stanford was instrumental in passing Oregon legislation that required all school districts to conduct thorough pre-participation physical examinations. He was named to the NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory Committee in 1996 and served as chairman of the committee. Stanford oversaw the publication of the first and second editions of the NFHS Sports Medicine Handbook.
2006 Terry
Baker
A three-sport athlete at Portland (Oregon) Jefferson High School, Baker was best known for his work on the football field. As quarterback and tailback, he led his teams to two Oregon School Activities Association state championships while compiling a 23-0 record in his last two years. In baseball, he was a four-year letterman who led the Democrats to the 1959 state title as an all-state pitcher. He went on to play football at Oregon State University, where he won the Maxwell Award and was the first Heisman Trophy winner west of the Mississippi River in 1962.
2008 Dewey Sullivan Sullivan is the winningest football coach in Oregon prep history, compiling a 352-84-2 win-loss record before his death near the end of the 2006 season. He ranks 12th nationally in coaching victories by an individual at one school. Sullivan coached for 42 years (1965-2006) at Dayton (Oregon) High School and won five state championships in six appearances. He led his teams to 29 postseason appearances in 30 years, including 24 in a row to end his career. A member of the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, Sullivan registered a 36-game winning streak at one point in his career.
2012 Rod Harman Harman has coached girls and boys swimming at three Beaverton, Oregon, schools since 1956, and has won eight state championships along the way – two boys titles and six girls titles. Harman coached 38 years at Beaverton High School, 10 years at Beaverton Aloha High School and the past eight years at Beaverton Southridge High School. His overall dual-meet record is 278-76. Harman has been named national swimming coach of the year for both boys and girls and has also coached the Beaverton High School boys water polo team to two state titles. The Harman Swim Center in Beaverton is named after him.
2015 Rick Lorenz Rick Lorenz has coached girls volleyball in Oregon since 1976, including the past 27 years at Central Catholic High School in Portland. He previously coached 10 years at St. Mary’s Academy and one year at Lake Oswego High School. Lorenz has led his teams to 10 Oregon School Activities Association state championships and 10 second-place finishes. His teams have advanced to the finals site in 32 of his 39 years coaching the sport. Lorenz has posted a 1,174-185 record (86.3 winning percentage) and his career victory total ranks eighth all-time nationally according to the NFHS’ National High School Sports Record Book. Lorenz’s 2011 team registered a perfect 44-0 record in the state’s largest volleyball class and won a third consecutive state title. Last year, Lorenz was named National Volleyball Coach of the Year by the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA).
2016 Joni Huntley Joni Huntley participated in three sports at Sheridan (Oregon) High School, but track and field was her claim to fame. Huntley was a three-time state high jump champion and became the first American woman to clear 6 feet in the event as a high school senior in 1974. Huntley set national records in the high jump and 100-yard hurdles on the same day at a 1974 meet, and won state titles in the high jump, hurdles and 100-yard dash. She also competed in basketball and helped the school’s volleyball team to a state title in 1973. Huntley was the first female to receive an athletic scholarship to Oregon State University, where she participated in track and field and volleyball. Huntley placed fifth in the high jump at the 1976 Olympics and won the bronze medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. She was ranked No. 1 in the United States in the high jump five times and was in the top 10 for 13 consecutive years. Huntley is a retired kindergarten teacher and currently works in the Portland Public Schools.
2018 Dick Fosbury Dick Fosbury revolutionized the high jump when, as a sophomore at Medford (Oregon) High School in 1963, he used his new technique which eventually became known as the Fosbury Flop. The upside-down, back-layout leap led to the extinction of the Western Roll and Scissors methods and became the universal technique in high jumping. All records around the world have been established by athletes using the Fosbury Flop. Fosbury first used the technique in 1963 at a meet in Grants Pass, Oregon, improving his best from 5-4 to 5-10. He improved to 6-5½ as a senior to set a Medford High School record and placed second in the Oregon School Activities Association state meet. Later that year, he won the Oregon State Junior Championship and the National Junior Championship in Houston, Texas, where he jumped 6-7 to set an Oregon state record for high school athletes. After Fosbury’s innovative “Flop” in 1963, word quickly spread around the nation and world. In 1964, the Medford Mail-Tribune newspaper ran a photo captioned “Fosbury Flops Over Bar,” with an accompanying article that stated he looked like “a fish flopping in a boat.” That same year, newspapers in Europe and Australia were publishing photos of Fosbury’s flopping style. By the time Fosbury graduated from Medford High School in 1965 and moved on to Oregon State University, the method for high jumping was changed forever. Under the direction of track coach Berny Wagner, Fosbury continued to perfect this new unorthodox jumping style at Oregon State with a two-year performance in 1968 and 1969 that rivals anyone else in track and field history. Fosbury won back-to-back NCAA titles in 1968 and 1969, with a 7-2¼ jump in 1968. In between his NCAA titles, Fosbury won the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City with a 7-4¼ jump, which broke both the Olympic and American records. As a result of his profound impact on track and field, Fosbury has been honored on many occasions. He has been inducted into the USA Track and Field Hall of Fame, the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame, the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, the Oregon State University Hall of Fame, the Medford Sports Hall of Fame, the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame and the SHAPE (America Society of Health and Physical Educators) Hall of Fame. In 2016, he received the USA Track & Field Legacy Award. In the years since his athletic prowess in the sport, Fosbury has been an international ambassador for track and field. In 2016, he was elected president of the United States Olympians and Paralympians Association Executive Committee, and he also served a term as president of the World Olympians Association. Fosbury continues to give back to the sport in other areas. He was chair of a fundraising committee at Oregon State University to fund the construction of a new track facility, and he continues to coach athletes at Dick Fosbury Track Camps in Maine and Idaho on an annual basis.
