Following a successful 2022 spring campaign on the track and field, Jackson also had plenty of standouts in the classroom.
Between both the girls and the boys team, the Indians combined for a total of 27 Academic All-State selections. Athletes can only be nominated by their head coach, who must be a member of the MTCCCA.
Other criteria to be named academic all-state includes having competed in a postseason meet, such as districts, sectionals or state. Academically, athletes must meet one of the following criteria: 25 or higher on the ACT, 1150 or higher on the SAT, or a 3.6 cumulative grade point average (non-rounded and non-weighted) at the end of the fall semester for cross country or the spring semester for track and field.
Here are the 27 Jackson track and field athletes named academic all-state: Gavin Alspaugh, Megan Berger, Andrew Boyd, Brooklyn Burgess, Blake Cain, Anna-Jane Callis, Kimmora Ca-rothers, Nolan Chrusciel, Kael Coffey, Josie Davis, Keller Drum, Layla Fliege, Lydia Golinski, Emerson Gross, Layne Gross, Addie Heisserer, Dru Herring, Evan Kiefer, Grace Kurtz, Conner Matthews, Cade McCadams, Maite Higuera-Mendez, Gracie Metzger, Mallorie Metzger, Felicity Pingkian, Carter Strickland and Dakota Wahlers.
