Santa Rosa Beach, FL--Call it a rather nice distinction for one of this area's 1A schools. The athletic program at South Walton High School
has won the F-H-S-A-A's Academic Team Championship in the 1-A class for spring 2011-12.
The award based on 62 total points, which come from the overall grade point averages of all the school's spring sports teams.
Freeport second 15 points behind, three other area schools round out the top five in that class. No other area school finishing top ten in any of the other classes, so South Walton really standing out among the state's best. Below is the top five listing with the schools and the point totals they accumulated.
