NYSPHSAA Announces Fall 2020 Scholar-Athlete Teams & Individuals
Latham, NY- The New York State Public High School Athletic Association Inc. (NYSPHSAA) announces its fall 2020 Scholar-Athlete teams and individuals. This is the 29th 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 fall NYSPHSAA recognized 1,437 Scholar-Athlete teams and 18,961 individuals. A total of 329 schools across the state participated in the Scholar-Athlete program. Any school or section offering a fall sport in a different part of the school year will be permitted to submit Scholar-Athlete information at that time.
“The student-athletes who earned recognition as a Scholar-Athlete for their work in the classroom this fall deserve our congratulations,” said Dr. Robert Zayas, NYSPHSAA Executive Director. “To see the number of teams and individuals recognized as scholar-athletes during these incredibly challenging times shows how hard our student-athletes are working. The dedication these student-athletes have shown to their studies is a testament to the truly remarkable young men and women we have in New York State.”
