• New Paltz Fall Scholar-Athlete Teams Score Excellence

    NEW PALTZ–Varsity athletes from New Paltz Central School District (NPCSD) inspire on both the playing field and in the classroom. The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) recently announced its Fall Scholar-Athletes and Scholar Team designations from 625 participating schools across the state, with an impressive presence of NPCSD athletes. 

    NYSPHSAA is in its 30th year of designating Scholar-Athletes. To qualify for the individual scholar-athlete award, students must earn a GPA of 90 percent or higher. For a team to receive the scholar-team award, 75 percent of the team’s roster must have a total average of 90 or above. 

    Health, Physical Education, and Athletics Director Gregory Warren said the student-athletes earned their recognition. “We are very proud of the consistent and high-achieving academic performance of our student-athletes, especially during these times which demand extra resilience and perseverance from us all,” he said. “Our student-athletes continued to perform with distinction and quality in the classroom and on the field of competition.”
