St. Francis' Sports Medicine Program Earns School's Fifth National Championship

Published : Thursday, May 26, 2016 | 12:36 PM

St. Francis High School would like to congratulate the school’s Sports Medicine Program on earning the title of National Champion of the Alert Services (Small Schools) Division for the fifth year in a row! Additionally, St. Francis would like to recognize the twelve Golden Knights who achieved All-American status by placing in the top 25 of the division.
The American Academic Competition Institute (AACI) recently released the results of the 5th Annual National High School Sports Medicine Championships that took place earlier this month. AACI’s goal is to give students from across the nation an opportunity to excel in their chosen areas of study through online competition and testing. Therefore, AACI developed the online National High School Sports Medicine Championships to help test and celebrate high school students’ Sports Medicine/Athletic Training knowledge. Over five hundred students from 38 high schools across the country competed in this year’s national championships after qualifying from a field of thousands of students from over 200 high schools that competed at the regional level.

In an effort to reduce the high costs of creating a national championship, and in order to ensure that all qualified participants have the opportunity to compete at the national level, AACI created a unique online event to challenge the minds of high school students. Schools that competed in a state/regional sports medicine competition and placed in the top 10 in their division were eligible to participate in this National Sports Medicine Championships Competition. St. Francis qualified for the National Championships earlier in the semester. Below is the list of the Alert Services Division individual All-Americans and final team rankings:

Alert Services Division – Schools with 1 to 999 students
All Americans are in Alphabetic Order
Final rankings and all individual student scores will be posted June 3rd!

Congratulations to the St. Francis High School Sports Medicine Program and the students named as Sports Medicine All-Americans!
