Trophies Available

Picture of Trophy

University School has recently installed some beautiful new trophy cases to showcase the athletic and academic accomplishments of our students and school teams. While filling the shelves with plaques and trophies we did some sorting and have some trophies and plaques that are looking for a new home - maybe yours. View list of available items, sorted by year. If you see an item listed that you would like to add to your personal collection at home please make note of the item number and stop by the school to pick it up. When sorting the items we decided to keep the highest accomplishment of that team for the year (for example - if we won districts, regionals, and state we only kept the state award for the shelf - so you will see some district and regional awards available).
