2020 Academic All-State track honored
High school track competition had just begun when the COVID-19 pandemic forced a complete halt to the meets.
Even without a chance to compete at their respective state track meets, their accomplishments in the classroom were recognized by the LHSAA as part of the Academic All-State honors.
Several local track and field performers earned academic all-state honors.
In Class 1-A, St. Edmund’s Katherine Sittig was named to Composite Academic All-State list with a 4.0 GPA.
Lady Jay senior Jaedyn Soileau was on the Class 1-A academic all-state in track and softball.
Basile’s Alyssa Robinson (3.63 GPA) and Lauren Oyster (3.55 GPA) were also on the Class 1-A list.

She was also named to the academic all-state list in basketball.
Eunice High’s Shaynia Toussaint (3.66 GPA) and Lady Bobcat Andrayia White (3.61 GPA) also earned academic honors.

The LHSAA All-Academic award program recognizes the academic excellence of senior student-athletes who have attained a 3.5 grade point average or higher by placing them on the Composite All-Academic Team or Class All-Academic Team.
To earn composite team honors, a student-athlete’s six-semester GPA must have an un-weighted 4.00.
In order to be selected to the All-Academic Team, the student-athlete must be a senior, have participated in the sport for at least two years, and achieved a six-semester cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 or better based on a 4.0 scale.
