Initiated during the 1996-97 school year, the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award program is designed to recognize varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence. The South Dakota High School Activities Association believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways; inside the classroom and outside the classroom – on the stage and/or athletic field. This academic program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. This program is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates.

All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to receive the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award. 

The Blackhawks Volleyball Team was included in the list as one of the teams to receive the honor.

The SCW Lady Blackhawks faced the Bridgewater-Emery Huskies in Emery on Tuesday, Jan. 7. The JV girls worked hard and came out on top with a final score of 32-28. Leading the way for the JV was Brooke Doering with 17 points, five rebounds and three steals. Morgan Schmiedt handed in seven points and three rebounds, and Teya Moody had five points.

The varsity girls also worked hard but didn’t have the same outcome, as the Huskies proved to be a strong opponent, defeating the Lady Blackhawks with a final score of 35-59. SCW was led by Trinity Boschee and Kaylee White who both scored nine points. Boschee also notched four assists and two steals, while White also brought down five rebounds.
