NEW! The Denny Sullivan Scholarship Award was established in 2022 to honor Denny “Sully” Sullivan, Track and Field coach at Grant High School from the early 1950s to his final season, 1962. During his tenure, his teams had five consecutive years of undefeated dual meets, several city relay and city track and field championships, and the state championship in 1961. Sully’s track teams were the best in the history of Grant high school at that time.
- Celebration of Champions This spring event recognized the PIL team and individual League Champions, outstanding male and female athletes of each PIL high school for their successful athletic, academic, and sportsmanship during their senior year. Coaches were also recognized at this well-attended event. The event was held each May at the Tiger Woods Center on the Nike Campus. (This event is currently on hold.)
