FRIARS/COUGARS INCREASE GSPN CUP LEAD

The once slim lead for the 2015-16 GSPN Cup from the 1st quarter has now turned into a large and increasing lead for the Friars/Cougars sports programs after the schools combined for three of the five possible titles in the 2nd quarter.

The 4th Annual GSPN High School Cup standings determine the best all-around athletic program in the IIAGG for the 2015-2016 season. The cup counts football, cross-country, golf, volleyball, soccer, basketball, baseball, wrestling, softball, tennis, rugby, track & field, and paddling (not counted was flag rugby or junior varsity sports).

The FD and AOLG programs did even better during the 2nd quarter after a rocking 1st quarter. First, the Lady Cougars rolled through the basketball season undefeated and put the cherry on top with a championship win over the ND Royals on Friday night.

The final Saturday of 2nd quarter sports played out as the Friars wrestling team won the boys title, baseball team clinched the 3rd place game, and finally the boys’ soccer team clinched the championship with a 1-0 win over the Harvest Eagles.

The rally was good enough to earn the Friars/Cougars 23 points in the standings. Other champions included GW baseball and Sanchez Sharks girls wrestling.

The point system is as follows: 5 points for All Island Champions and 1 point per playoff victory, as well as a 1 for a first round playoff BYE.
