Tucson High School is the winner of the 2017 Tucson Unified School District’s Superintendent’s Cup.

It’s the Badgers first victory in this the sixth year of the competition between the athletics departments at the district’s nine high schools.

The Superintendent’s Cup is awarded to the school in TUSD that had the best overall program during the year starting with the spring season of 2015-16 and ending with the winter season of 2016-17.
