Holy Family principal Tim Gallic hoists the Cup after it was awarded to the Tigers on Friday.

For the first time since its inception, the Cup has a new home.

The trophy, awarded annually to the area school that displays the top overall athletic prowess in the region, finally made its way to Holy Family High School on Friday. The trophy was presented to principal Tim Gallic during the Tigers’ pep rally in preparation for their football opener Friday night against Faith Christian.

Holy Family won three state titles during the 2012-13 school year, winning one during each season as the Tigers’ girls cross country team, girls basketball team, and baseball squad all captured the big prize. Holy Family also was the only school within the coverage area that earned points in each and every sport in which it fielded a varsity team.

Since its inception in 2007, the BoCoPreps Cup had been won every year by Broomfield. Last year, though, Holy Family’s all-around excellence allowed the Tigers to outscore Broomfield by an average mark of 66.6 to 55.7.

“It’s definitely an incredible feeling,” Holy Family baseball star Devlin Granberg said. “We didn’t know this (trophy) was at stake, but it’s another bonus for us and we’re very happy about it.”
