Prep Captures Director's Cup for Second Straight Year


For the second year in a row, Sandia Prep has been awarded first place among 3A schools in the coveted Subway Director’s Cup, given to top New Mexico Activities Association member schools based on excellence in activities, athletics, and sportsmanship.

Prep was the only top finisher that did not have deductions for the ejection of a player or coach.

In the 3A category, Sandia Prep was awarded 1,100 points for the 2019-20 school year, more than 300 points higher than the second-place finisher.

Activity programs include student council, bowling, chess, choir, Mock Trial, e-Sports and others.

The recognition is especially impressive, given that COVID-19 cut short the spring sports season, said Prep Athletics Director Willie Owens. “We are so proud of our student-athletes and coaching staff for this achievement for the second straight year,” Owens said. “We're excited about starting on the path for our third year in a row.”

Prep’s 2019-20 year included a 3A championship in Girls Soccer, as well as Runner-up finishes in Boys Basketball and Coed Bowling. Prep also earned third-place finishes in Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball.
