DIGS team members are eligible for two club awards, presented at our annual end of season Gala Celebration:
The Iron Woman Award - Presented to each player who has attended every formally scheduled practice and every tournament match during the program year. Commitment is an important value - those who have demonstrated such commitments to DIGS are thus honored.
The Scholar-Athlete Award - Presented to a player who has achieved a minimum grade average of 3.2 in the third marking period of the school year. This aligns with the club philosophy regarding the student-athlete and scholastic achievement. DIGS believes strongly that achievement in sports and academics can and should co-exist. This award recognizes those players who have achieved a balance of both.
The required minimum GPA for the third marking period is 3.2. It is calculated as follows:
A = 4 pts
B = 3 pts
C = 2 pts
D = 1 pt
F = 0 pt
No different scoring is used for a "+" or "-" grade (e.g., "B+) and no special consideration is given for honors courses. All classes listed on the report card count - yes, even physical education and wood shop.
