NYSPHSAA

Eight of Cazenovia Central Schools’ nine varsity teams  have achieved Scholar-Athlete status this spring.

To qualify for the prestigious designation by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA), a minimum number of each team’s players must have at least a 90-percent grade point average during the season.

“Thank you all for supporting these student-athletes throughout the school year,” said Michael Byrnes, director of athletics and communications for the district. “For the 2013-14 school year, 21 of 23 varsity teams earned this status. One of our annual goals in the athletic department is to have all varsity teams earn NYS Scholar Athlete status.”

*To qualify as a NYS Scholar Athlete team, the team “average,”  based on a minimum number of student-athletes’ grades (varying by sport), needs to be 90 percent or higher. Any additional students on a team, who also averaged 90 percent or higher, are considered scholar-athletes, as well, but their scores do not impact the team average used for team qualification. Usually, the highest team average possible is used to rank the team as high as possible across the state by sport.
