Yukon, Weatherford and Corn Bible Academy Win Sweepstakes Titles at SWOSU Interscholastic Meet
Yukon, Weatherford and Corn Bible Academy high schools won sweepstakes titles at the 100th annual Southwestern Oklahoma State University Interscholastic Meet held March 28 on the Weatherford campus.
Yukon won the Class I title, Weatherford took top honors in Class II for the second straight year and Corn Bible Academy won Class III.
SWIM Director Shamus Moore said 74 schools and over 1,500 students from around Oklahoma competed in the academic contest, which has been a traditional event on the SWOSU campus since 1913. Moore said 2,259 tests were given during the day. Students who placed first in each of the test categories were awarded commemorative 100-year SWIM medals. Plaques awarded to high schools were redesigned to reflect the 100th anniversary.
The number of students enrolled in grades nine through 12 determines school class. Schools with 600 or more students are in Class I, 151 to 599 in Class II, and 150 and less in Class III.
