RENO — Bishop Manogue Catholic High School has won the 2011-2012 NIAA 4A Award of Excellence in Academics, Athletics and Citizenship — the third year in a row, the school announced Thursday.
“This is the result of a lot of dedicated, hardworking, and disciplined student-athletes and coaches,” says Manogue’s principal Tim Jaureguito. “We could not be more proud.”
The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association, a non-profit governing body of high school athletics, began the award program in 2001.
The scoring system awards points to schools based on their varsity teams’ performances in the classroom, at the athletic venue and in the Citizenship Through Sports Program. Each of the three major categories in high school activities are weighted equally, and boys and girls programs are combined in the standings table. Spirit and student council/leadership points were added after the conclusion of the winter season. Points were deducted at the conclusion of the spring season for ejections and other acts of unsportsmanlike conduct.
