Oakbrook's Athletic Department wins General Excellence Award
One of the area’s smallest schools had one of the biggest years.
Oakbrook Prep put together an incredible athletic run, winning four team and three individual state championships on the way to claiming the 2018-2019 Herald-Journal/GoUpstate General Excellence Award.
The award, in its 19th year, rewards schools’ athletic performance across several criteria, tabulated by the number of sports played by each school.
The Knights doubled up on two days, winning both SCISA 2A swimming titles in the fall, and both SCISA 2A soccer titles in the spring. They took three individual state swimming championships, three region titles and a pair of Herald-Journal/GoUpstate Player of the Year awards.
