We’ve got some excellent news to celebrate with you. 5 out of our 6 varsity winter sports teams have earned the distinction of qualifying for “Academic All-State” by having a team GPA of 3.0 and higher. These student athletes and their coaches have worked tirelessly to be student-athletes of character, scholar, and selfless service. This gives us a running total of 9 out of our 13 varsity teams this school year have qualified for this honorable recognition. These are our student-athletes, these are our coaches, and this is our McKay!
Thank you for supporting our student-athletes, coaches, parents, and Athletic Success program!
McKay Athletics is excited to announce the hiring of Glen Fowles as Head Football Coach at McKay High School. Glen comes to us from Willamette University where he played, coached, and educated student athletes for 23 years. During his time at Willamette, Coach Fowles was named 2008 National Offensive Coordinator of the Year, and was head coach of the Bearcats for 7 years.
Glen is married with 2 children grades 3 and 5 here in Salem.
We are excited for Glen to be joining our McKay Community. He shares the same values of teaching Leadership, Scholarship, and Competitiveness to all of our student athletes. Go Scots!
Salem Sports and Breakfast Club have shared with us that they are honoring McKay’s, Yobeli Manzo, with Senior Athlete of the Year for boys soccer!
Congratulations Yobeli! GO SCOTS!
Our McKay High School Athletic Success Program, which is a new, innovative program that utilizes student-athlete academic and attendance data to guide each sports program and drive our coach’s professional development, has shown some remarkable data during our first 6-weeks this semester. As you can see on the academic graph, 5 out of the 6 fall sports programs have under a 2.0, which indicates they are averaging less than an F grade per student-athlete. The “total points” data point helps to put all of our athletics teams on an even playing field regardless of size. Our next celebration point is found on our attendance graph where we can see that our Royal Scot student-athlete’s attend classes at a rate 10-12% higher than the general student average. We are beginning to see the fruits of everyone’s labor by having each of our girls sports this fall be named to the OSAA Academic All-State teams.
These are great numbers for us as we work towards our Athletic Success goal of increasing the McKay High School graduation rate by 10% by 2021. Our coaches, student-athletes, and building staff have done a tremendous job raising the bar for our athletic programs. Go SCOTS!
October 17, 2018 the McKay Cross Country team ran a 3K (1.87 mile) race at Keizer Rapids. Junior Ramiro Gonzalez took first place on the boys side with a time of 9:39 breaking the McKay school record previously held by Devin White from 2008. Sophomore Jazmine Liebl took first place on the girls side with a time of 11:20 breaking the McKay school record previously held by Anika Rasubala from 2015. 19 other athletes broke their own personal best records during the meet. Congrats Scots!
What a GREAT day to be a Royal Scot!
We’ve got some excellent news to celebrate with you. Each of our Girls’ Fall Sports teams have earned the distinction of “Academic All-State” by having a team GPA of 3.0 and higher. These student athletes and their coaches have worked tirelessly to be student-athletes of character, scholar, and selfless service. If you are fortunate enough to have any of these young ladies in class or see a coach in the hallways, take a moment and celebrate with them. These are our student-athletes, these are our coaches, and this is our McKay!
Congratulations to Mr. Dick Bellock and Thank you to the Salem Keizer Beacons for the donation to McKay’s student athletes. What a great event. We can’t wait until next year.
