Class D All-Sports Award: Humphrey St. Francis take title for first time since 2008

Only $5 for 5 months
Humphrey St. Francis

Humphrey St. Francis won a state championship in football and finished runner-up in volleyball and boys and girls basketball.

For the first time since 2008, Humphrey St. Francis is the Class D All-Sports champion.

And with good reason. The Flyers won a state football title and were in state finals in three other sports — volleyball, girls basketball and boys basketball.

St. Francis finished with 74 points in a sports year shortened by the coronavirus pandemic. Spring sports were canceled.

The Flyers tied Falls City Sacred Heart for first in the boys standings and Pleasanton for first in the girls race. Sacred Heart was second in the combined boys-girls standings with 64 points and Pleasanton third with 50.

St. Francis was the undefeated champion in Eight Man-2 football, rolling Pleasanton 70-16 in the title game at Memorial Stadium. In their other state finals, the Flyers lost in five sets to Bruning-Davenport/Shickley in D-2 volleyball, 59-51 to Wynot in D-2 girls basketball and 45-33 to Sacred Heart in D-2 boys basketball.

Sacred Heart was second in the final Eight Man-2 football ratings and its D-2 basketball title allowed the Irish boys to match St. Francis with 38 points.

Pleasanton’s girls never had been in the top three in All-Sports scoring, but went undefeated in D-1 volleyball and finished third in the D-1 volleyball ratings to tie St. Francis with 36 points.
