In a recent press release from NYSPHSAA, 3,373 Scholar-Athlete teams and 46,480 individuals were recognized. According to NYSPHSAA, “the figures represent a 14.65% (431 more teams) and 9.27% (3,945 individuals) increase compared to Fall 2016 in honoring teams and individuals who attain a 90.0 GPA or greater. Starting in 2016, the NYSPHSAA adjusted its criteria to recognize individuals with a 90.0 GPA or greater whose athletic team did not qualify as a Scholar-Athlete team. Furthermore, the criteria was adjusted to allow for “small” teams to be recognized and 75% of a team’s roster be considered when determining a team’s average GPA.”
Congratulations to OLL Girls & Boys Cross Country, Girls Field Hockey, Football, Girls & Boys Soccer, Girls Swimming, Girls Tennis, and Girls Volleyball. Record boards in the AAC reflect all records broken this fall on Cross Country and Girls Swim.
