Scholastic awards

The Menlo School boys and Castilleja girls came away with the most recognition of local teams on the Central Coast Section Spring Season Scholastic Championship Team Awards list.

The awards recognize the top five varsity teams from each section sport, with the highest collective grade-point average of all teams competing in that sport during that season of competition.

Menlo ranked No. 1 in golf (3.752) and track and field (3.6836), third in lacrosse (3.4348), fourth in swimming (3.5118) and fifth in baseball (3.4016).

Castilleja ranked No. 1 in swimming (3.8489), No. 2 in lacrosse (3.8431) and softball (3.7361) and No. 5 in track and field.

The Sacred Heart Prep boys were No. 2 in swimming (3.5473) and No. 3 in tennis (3.6313).


Menlo School senior Gabriel Morgan was one of 21 boys named to the 2015-16 High School All-American list by US Squash. A girls' team also was announced.

Recipients include the top four ranked players in the Boys and Girls U17, and the top eight ranked players in the U19 divisions and those voted on by leagues and coaches.

Morgan, a Menlo Park resident, made the team in the U19 division. He is the only player male from California to receive an All-American honor and the only one from the Western United States.

To be eligible for All-American recognition, participants must be either a U.S. citizen or a U.S. resident, must play on a high school varsity team participating in the Scholastic Squash Program or maintain a ranking in the Under-17 or U19 division (as Morgan did) in the National Junior Rankings.
