Pattonville High School is one of two high schools in the region chosen to receive the Distinguished Program Award by the St. Louis Suburban High School Athletic and Activities Association.

Each year the association awards the Commissioners Cup to a high school based on the previous year’s results, including number of conference, district and state championships, team improvement from one year to the next, program growth and number of team sportsmanship awards. For the first time, however, the association also awarded a Distinguished Program Award to two schools that accumulated many points towards earning the Commissioner’s Cup and that are seen as schools on the rise with successful programs. Pattonville and Marquette high schools earned the distinguished awards, while Parkway Central High School earned the Commissioner’s Cup.

“I wanted to personally thank all of our students, coaches and volunteers for their hard work and time that they have given to our kids and our programs,” said Bob Hebrank, Pattonville activities coordinator. “The fact that other districts are noticing what we are doing at PHS is very rewarding. We are going to continue to work hard and keep our programs going in a positive direction for our students.” 

The St. Louis Suburban High School Athletic and Activities Association is comprised of 31 high schools that compete with each other in the St. Louis region.
