SFUSD ATHLETES OUTPERFORM NON-ATHLETES IN THE CLASSROOM
SFUSD athletes attained higher GPAs than the SFUSD average in virtually every conceivable measurement.  This study illustrates the importance of athletics and demonstrates that athletics is one of the most cost-effective ways for a school district to enhance overall academic performance.  Check the following links to read a summary of the 2011-12 data and review a GPA statistical comparison of SFUSD athletes and the general student populace. 


ALUMNI HISTORY PAGE
We provide an Alumni History Page on our web site dedicated to preserving specific historical athletic information from our past and present AAA/SF Section schools.  Check it out!  If you have any information about major school events or athletes who have made it to the Professional or Olympic level, please forward it to us via e-mail.  In addition, since our office is located at the old McAteer HS (currently SOTA HS), we are also in the process of gathering more in-depth information for you McAteer alums--yearbooks, athletic photos, past coaches list, etc.  If any ex-Jaguar athletes are able to help in our "fact finding mission," please feel free to call us at 415-920-5185 or forward the info via e-mail to us for posting.


ANNUAL CHAMPIONS POSTED
The updated AAA Annual Champions by Sport are posted on our Sport Info page.  Being that the AAA dates back to 1924, there are a number of years in various sports for which we have been unable to determine the champion.  We are, therefore, requesting your assistance in helping us "fill in the blanks."  If you have any information that might shed some light on those "dark years", please call us at 415-920-5185 or send an e-mail to John Zlatunich.  Together we can create and build a concise history of the AAA!
