Over 40 varsity athletic and fine arts teams around the Sioux Falls metro area have been honored as part of the Spring 2019 South Dakota Academic Achievement Team Awards.

Each season the South Dakota High School Activities Association awards teams an academic achievement award if the group has a combined average GPA of 3.0 or higher. This is done during the fall, winter, spring, and summer seasons.

The SDHSAA has released its list for spring 2019. Athletic and fine arts teams from Brandon Valley, Lincoln, O'Gorman, Roosevelt, and Washington all made the list.
