The Canyon Crest Academy soccer and wrestling teams earned the highest GPA of any other wrestling or soccer team in the North Coast CIF San Diego section this season, winning them All Academic Team Honors. Jim Esterbrooks of the CIF San Diego Section honored the teams at a special presentation at the school on Friday, May 2.

Esterbrooks said he represents 24 sports and 70,000 student athletes in the North Coast section.

“The competition of academic achievement in this area is really, really steep so you are to be commended,” Esterbrooks told the teams.

The Cymer Scholar Award is also given to the student with the highest cumulative high school GPA on the All-Academic Team. The Cymer Scholar for the soccer team was senior Thomas Schibler with a GPA of 4.36, and for the wrestling team the honor went to junior Nathaniel Perdue, GPA 3.43.
