Penn Yan Athletes earn Scholar Athlete team awards
In an effort to recognize academic excellence coupled with athletic participation, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association sponsors the Scholar Athlete award.
This award is based on a team concept of academic achievement, and is intended to be an incentive for all team members to raise their individual Grade Point Average (GPA) to positively affect their team’s success. Scholar Athlete teams must be a varsity team with the minimum team composite grade average of 90 percent, based on a designated number of team members for each sport.
Each individual who receives the award receives a recognition pin while the school receives a certificate for display.
The awards are presented once during fall, winter and spring sports seasons.
