For the fifteenth year, Universal Athletic is excited to announce the All-Sports Class Champions results for the 2010-2011 Montana High School sports season. Winners in each division will receive permanent trophies and will possess for a year the master traveling trophy listing all winners.
“The All-Sports Award is one small way we can recognize and thank all the high schools in Montana who have been so good to Universal Athletic over the past 40 years. It is always fun for us to follow the competitions and track the points in all four classes during the school year.” Larry Aasheim, Universal Athletic Co-Founder and President
Points in the All-Sports competition are awarded on a 25-15-10-5 basis for the “major sports” [football, boys’ and girls’ basketball, wrestling, volleyball, and boys’ and girls’ track.) The point system for the other sports [golf, tennis, swimming, cross country, soccer, and softball) is 12-9-6-3. 91 schools competed for points this year [AA-14, A-21, B-24, C-32.]
The Class AA All-Sports Award recipient for 2010-2011 is Bozeman High School.
