Each season, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association, the non-
profit governing body of high school athletics in the Silver State, and Ingraham Awards, the NIAA’s corporate partner, are proud to present a special award to the varsity sport teams with the highest grade point average in each classification.
This year, the White Pine High boys soccer team earned this honor.
The team grade point average is determined by taking the individual GPA’s of varsity team members from the previous semester and then computing an overall team average.
The NIAA and the Ingrahams also recognize those varsity student-athletes who achieved a 4.0 GPA the previous semester by naming them to the All-State Academic Team.
Team members are: Kellen Wilkin, Colton Rowley, Seth Robertson, Gabe Harris, Macrae Windous, Marco Pacheco, Dalton Westlund, Will Dalton, Diogo Gandra, Henrik Skjolden, Jonatan Gonzalez, Jason Bautista, Chris Piscovich, Shamryn Brewster, Richi Carrazana, Ray Tellechea, Zeke Vinson, Gavin Henriod, Mckean Windous, Jayden Brewer, Kincade Waggener, Tyler Perkins, Kaleb Brandis, Daniel Hampton, Zach Chamberlain, Sören Kohnert, Ole Hensellek, Emanuel Gonzalez, and Noah Walker.
Coaches are: Leif Tokerud, Ryan Costello, and Jose Pacheco
These are White Pine’s first academic state champions since the 2004-05 school year when both girls golf and boys basketball earned the award. Kellen and Noah also earned individual All-State Academic Team status.
