ANOTHER ATHLETIC YEAR COMPLETE!
The 2013-14 AAA/SF Section high school athletic year has come to a
close. This past year, we had 3979 student athletes participate on
248 sports teams from our 16 SF Section members. This coming year we will add
our 17th member and first private school, Immaculate Conception Academy (ICA),
to our Section since the 1960's. Also, our SF Section member KIPP, along with ICA,
will join the AAA league in a number of sports. So while we are glad
to have a break from athletic events to "recharge the batteries," we are excited and
looking forward to an even better year in 2014-15! Have a great
summer, and we'll see you all back again in mid-August for more exciting high
school sports action!
TWO SF SECTION SCHOOLS EARN CIF ACADEMIC TEAM
Mission HS and San Francisco International HS recently had athletic
teams selected by the State CIF as Academic Team Champions for 2013-14.
The Bears Badminton (3.87 GPA) and Girls Tennis (3.95 GPA) squads finished
on top in their sport amongst all the schools in California. The
Huskies Girls Cross Country team not only earned top honors for their
sport, but was also the ONLY school team in the state to finish with a
perfect 4.0 team GPA in any sport! Congratulations to our
outstanding student athletes for being champions in the classroom!

UCSF PLAYSAFE SPORTS MEDICINE PROGRAM

by providing doctors, athletic trainers, and functioning training rooms at each of the
SFUSD high schools that participate in the AAA. Check out this link

STATE CIF CELEBRATING 100 YEARS

NFHS LAUNCHES ROLE OF PARENT IN SPORTS COURSE
The NFHS has created a FREE on-line course for the parents of high
school student athletes. The course provides information on how
parents can help their son and/or daughter enjoy and succeed in high
school sports. Check out this link to access the
Sports Parent Course.
SFUSD ATHLETES OUTPERFORM NON-ATHLETES IN THE
athletes attained higher GPAs than the SFUSD average in virtually every
conceivable measurement. This study illustrates the importance of
athletics and demonstrates that athletics is one of the most
cost-effective ways for a school district to enhance overall academic
performance. Check the following links to read a
summary of the
2011-12 data and review a GPA statistical
comparison of SFUSD athletes and the general student populace.
ALUMNI HISTORY PAGE
We provide an Alumni History Page on our web site dedicated to preserving specific historical athletic
information from our past and present AAA/SF Section schools. Check
it out! If you have any information about major school events or
athletes who have made it to the Professional or Olympic level, please
forward it to us via e-mail.
In addition, since our office is located at the old McAteer HS (currently
SOTA HS), we are also in the process of gathering more in-depth
information for you McAteer alums--yearbooks, athletic photos, past
coaches list, etc. If any ex-Jaguar athletes are able to help in our
"fact finding mission," please feel free to call us at 415-920-5185 or
forward the info via e-mail to
us for posting.
ANNUAL CHAMPIONS POSTED
The updated AAA Annual Champions by Sport are posted on our
page. Being that the AAA dates back to 1924, there are a number of
years in various sports for which we have been unable to determine the
champion. We are, therefore, requesting your assistance in helping
us "fill in the blanks." If you have any information that might shed
some light on those "dark years", please call us at 415-920-5185 or send
an e-mail to John Zlatunich.
Together we can create and build a concise history of the AAA!
