Standings after 3rd Quarter

1) FD/AOLG: 51 points – The Frougars swept both team tennis titles. FD was the basketball runner-up in a thrilling championship game and the boys rugby repeated as champions. The Cougars were runner-ups in softball and rugby.  

2) GW: 30 points – The Lady Geckos continued their dominance in rugby and may just be the greatest dynasty of any Guam prep program. Boys rugby was runner-up for the second straight year.

3) JFK: 27 points – The Lady Islanders pulled off five wins total to take the softball title to keep the Islanders trend of winning a title every quarter alive.

4) St. John’s: 18 points – The golf titles put the Knights in a high spot, but their second place finish in boys soccer would be the last notable point earners given they have no rugby or softball teams.

5) Guam High/Sanchez: 14 points – The Panthers picked up playoff wins in basketball and softball. Sanchez secured 3rd place in boys rugby, basketball, and softball.

6) St. Paul: 13 points – The warriors rolled to an undefeated regular season and playoff run to the championship.

7) Okkodo/Southern: 10 points – Southern placed 3rd in girls rugby.

8) ND, Harvest, and Tiyan: 4 points – The Titans made it in the girls rugby semifinals.

DID U KNOW?

Sports legend Joe Taitano used to run to school at JFK from his Yigo home and back. He continued this routine up to 1979 when he’d run from home to GW gym and back to practice for the South Pacific Games with the national basketball team. Guam went on to win its second straight SPG gold medal.
