Blackshirts News · The 2020 Scholar Athlete Celebration Begins

Announcing: Our 2020 Scholar Athletes

Each year, hundreds of student athletes and their families gather to celebrate the academic and leadership success of Waukesha South High School’s Scholar Athletes (students that have maintained a 3.5 GPA and played at least one sport) and also honor a select group of athletes with special awards. While the COVID-19 pandemic may have canceled this in-person gathering, the Athletic department and coaching staff at Waukesha South have moved this recognition celebration online.

“The Scholar Athlete Banquet is always a highlight of our school year,” said Athletic Director Todd Sobrilsky. “It’s a time to honor not only the academic achievement of our athletes, but a time to thank, recognize and honor our Seniors. We know it’s not the same, but it was important to our entire staff that we take the time to recognize the hard work that these students put in and make this celebration happen. Our coaching staff did a great job creating short videos honoring each of the students receiving special awards.”

The Celebration Plan

We are releasing the names of all Scholar Athletes today via the website and will be releasing the names of the special award winners along with video clips of the award winners’ coaches presenting the award.  Then, over the course of the next 2 weeks, we will be featuring each Special Award and the winners individually by honoring them on our site and in our social media. 

All students are being contacted to advise them of how to pick up their awards.

This year, Waukesha South High School is recognizing 279 Scholar Athlete students and 40 special award winners. This is amazing. Keep up the great work, we are proud of all of you.
