Finding out who’s tops in high school sports is only a score sheet away. But which teams are first when it comes to smarts? The CIF Southern section announced the names Wednesday.

Not only did San Juan Hills come out on top in girls’ golf academically (the team won the Sea View League championship in October), the girls also won a scholarship. The Women’s Southern California Golf Association provides scholarship grants to the top-three placing schools in all-female golf team categories.

The CIF team awards, based on a cumulative grade point average, are awarded in 22 sports, according to the CIF. To be considered, teams must have a minimum 3.0 GPA average (on a 4.0 scale) in college-prep courses in the first semester of the 2013-14 school year.

The highest team GPA in each sport determines the winner. Schools are divided into two enrollment categories, 1,500 students and above and 1,499 and below.

Congrats to the following Patch town winners:

  • Baseball: Palos Verdes, 3.59 (larger schools)

Smart parents have smart kids. Smart parents make good money. Making good money allows them to play golf. These habits are passed to their kids. There is correlation.
