East Rockaway recognizes scholar-athletes


The East Rockaway Board of Education recognized student athletes from East Rockaway Jr./Sr. High School for their outstanding performance off the field as the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athletes and Scholar-Athlete teams were named.

Athletic Director Gary Gregory announced that every fall athletic team at East Rockaway Jr./Sr. High School was named a Scholar-Athlete Team. In addition, 68 students earned individual Scholar-Athlete status.

To receive individual Scholar-Athlete status, students must maintain a GPA of at least 90. For Scholar-Athlete team recognition, the team’s average GPA for 75% of the roster must be greater than or equal to 90.

All individual award winners will be presented with a pin from NYSPHSAA and teams will be honored with a banner that will be unveiled in the high school gym.
