Sophomores earned bragging rights to the Sherwood Cup trophy this year by beating the class in 2nd place by 40 points!
The 8th graders were declared the middle school Sherwood Cup winners yesterday at the 2023 Sherwood Cup closing ceremony.
Sherwood Cup points are earned all year by 6th-12th grades and culminate in a day-long game day of competitions and relay races. Sherwood Cup games included gaga ball, ping pong, eating contests, human battleship, video games, dodgeball, kickball, catapult contests, a Just Dance off, ultimate frisbee, and tug-a-war.
It was such a fun day for our secondary students and their teachers! The Sherwood Cup tradition boosts team building and unity within SCA’s middle school and high school classes.

If a visitor came to our school on Friday, March 27 this year, they would be surprised to see war paint, crazy colored t-shirts and classrooms filled with yells of students cheering on their classmates. On this day, Sherwood Christian Academy’s grades fought hard for the coveted trophy declaring the best grade on campus. It is called Sherwood Cup.
Every year, different events pop up, which makes every Sherwood Cup different in some fashion. These events include things like geography bowl, chess and eating contests to soccer, flag football and sock war. It is a relaxed day when teachers and students get to cut loose and have fun without being in a classroom setting. However, at the end of the day it was all about the trophy. In the middle school, the seventh grade won, which was a great surprise. They are the only grade in Sherwood history to win two years in a row and the only grade to ever win their sixth grade year. For the high school, it was no shock when the class of 2015 walked away with the trophy, winning it all their final year. As a senior, I have participated in seven Sherwood Cups, and each year they get better and better. Some of my favorite high school memories come from this day because it made us pursue teamwork together, ultimately making my senior class an even tighter family.
