Winter Teams Receive Scholastic Recognition

Winter Teams Receive Scholastic Recognition

This winter, Castilleja student-athletes have been working hard in practice and in turn finding success in their competitions! Beyond their athletic achievements, these student-athletes have also been stellar students in the classroom, as both winter sports teams were named CCS Scholastic Teams this season!

In order to be named a CCS Scholastic Team, the team’s average GPA needed to be within the top five of the Central Coast Section of all teams competing in that sport during that season of competition. Varsity basketball finished fourth in the section, while varsity soccer finished second! 

For more information, visit, or specifically this article about the teams.
