NYSPHSAA Announces Winter 2020 Scholar-Athlete Teams & Individuals
Latham, NY- The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) is proud to announce its winter 2020 Scholar-Athlete teams and individuals. This is the 28th year the NYSPHSAA has conducted the Scholar-Athlete program, which is sponsored by Pupil Benefits Plan, Inc. and the American Dairy Association North East.
This winter, NYSPHSAA recognized 2,475 Scholar-Athlete teams and 30,497 individuals. A total of 569 schools across the state participated in the Scholar-Athlete program.
“Congratulations to the Scholar-Athlete teams and individuals from the winter 2020 season,” said Dr. Robert Zayas, NYSPHSAA Executive Director. “The Scholar-Athlete program continues to be one of the most rewarding endeavors we encourage here at the Association. The winter season was extremely challenging this year, so to see this many student-athletes honored for their work in the classroom is truly rewarding.”

Due to the cancellation of the spring sports season and the closing of schools for the rest of the academic year, the spring 2020 scholar-athlete program has been cancelled. We are hopeful the program will return in the fall of 2020.
