Excellence in the 3A’s (Academics, Arts and Athletics) is not new at Waukee High School. Since Bank Iowa and the Iowa High School Sports Network (IHSSN) initiated the Challenge Cup competition in 2007, Waukee has placed in the top five in the point standings every year. Along with winning the cup the past three years, Waukee has placed second in the standings five times.
Congratulations students, coaches, and faculty!
