The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) recently recognized several Fayetteville-Manlius School District athletic teams as part of its fall Scholar-Athlete program.
At the end of each sports season, NYSPHSAA recognizes student-athletes and teams that have achieved academic success. To receive a NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete team award, 75 percent of students on a team’s roster must earn a grade point average (GPA) of 90 or above.
NYSPHSAA recently announced that 11 of F-M’s 2022 fall varsity athletic teams earned Scholar-Athlete designation and 185 F-M varsity student-athletes achieved a GPA of 90 or more.
