Astoria finished 10th in the Class 3A standings of The Oregonian Cup, honoring schools equally for activities, athletics and academics.

Marist earned 4,189 points for first, followed by Wilsonville (4,104) and North Bend (3,315).

Schools earn points based on their finish in all OSAA/U.S.Bank/Les Schwab Tires State Championships and in recognition of placement in the OSAA-Dairy Farmers of Oregon Academic All-State program.

The Oregonian Cup also considers a sportsmanship component, whereby schools are awarded points each season for having no ejections.

Cowapa League schools included: Scappoose (8th), Astoria (10th), Tillamook (19th), Seaside (32nd), Banks (35th) and Rainier (43rd).

It was the third straight GNAC team title for the Wolves.

Rummell, who graduated from Astoria in 2002, took third in the 400-meter hurdle finals, running a 1:05.23 to finish behind Chelsi Claussen of St. Martin's and Ashley Rickels of Northwest Nazarene.

Rummell was also selected to the GNAC Academic All-Conference team.
