Two Area Athletes Named Scholar Athletes

The IHSA All-State Academic Team, presented by Caterpillar was announced this past week, with two local athletes being named. Taylor Cook, of Nashville High School, and Logan Thoms of Okawville High School were each named to the 2016-17 All-State Academic Team.
Every IHSA member school was invited to nominate one male and one female student. In order to be nominated, students must possess at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale after their seventh semester of high school, and must have participated in at least two IHSA activities during each of the last two years of high school, and demonstrated outstanding citizenship.
The nominations were evaluated by a committee made up of IHSA principals, athletic directors and activities directors. One male and one female student were each selected from each of the seven IHSA Board of Directors Divisions, and the the final 12 spots were rounded out from nominees anywhere in the state.
Overall 430 students were nominated.
