While the Shorewood Girls Soccer Team’s season may be over, they will still be bringing home a major trophy at the state tournament next weekend. That’s because they have been named the 3A Girls Soccer Academic State Champions by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab.

The team, coached by Dan Faires, maintained an incredible 3.87 grade point average this season. In addition to winning in the classroom, they also had a great season on the field, going 9-5 in league play and 10-9 overall.

“Shorewood athletes have an inner drive that shows in the classroom as well as on the playing field,” said Shorewood Athletic Director Joann Fukuma. “The girls soccer team exemplifies what it means to be a successful student-athlete at Shorewood High School with focus, drive and determination to be their best selves.”

The team will accept their Academic State Championship trophy during halftime of the 3A State Championship game on Saturday, November 23 at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.
