T.R. Miller High School collected another honor last week when it was named the recipient of the Dodge Champion Cup Award for the 2004-05 school year.
The honor is presented to both the boys and girls athletic programs based on their performances in the most popular Alabama High School Athletic Association sports.
A school receives points based on its finish in the six AHSAA state championship sports that the majority of the 410 members participate in during that school year. Those sports are football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball and outdoor track. The top 32 places in each championship sport playoff were scored when possible. Teams received 50 points for a state championship, one point for a 32nd place finish and various point values in between.
T.R. Miller's boys won the Class 3A title with 158 points. In the girls division, T.R. Miller finished in a tie for fourth in Class 3A with 110 points.
This honor is a testament to the emphasis on excellence in the athletic programs at T.R. Miller. The understanding that excellence requires hard work is one that can be applied in all areas of life. We congratulate the school on this award and appreciate the lessons the programs teach our youngsters.
