Three of Nebo School District’s high schools received state recognition for their athlete’s academic performance in 4A. Maple Mountain High placed first, Salem Hills High placed fourth, and Springville High placed fifth for the Directors Cup through the Utah Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (UIAAA).
This is the seventh year of the UIAAA Directors Cup. The Directors Cup is awarded to the school achieving the highest cumulative point total in each classification based on state tournament results in all sports (boys and girls) and the successful implementation of the “Raise The Bar” sportsmanship initiative.
The top 16 teams in each sport and classification received points based on how their teams finished in the UHSAA State Championship events. (This counts for 40% of the Directors Cup Total.) Each school may also submit their respective team GPA’s to the UIAAA.
The top 16 teams in each sport and classification received points based on how their team’s GPA rank compared to other schools in their classification. (This counts for 40% of the Directors Cup Total.) Every school regardless of team GPA’s or how it placed in any State Tournament can also receive points from the successful implementation of the “Raise The Bar” sportsmanship initiative.
