All ten fall varsity athletic teams at Huntington High School have earned New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete Awards based on the grade point averages of respective team members.
Huntington’s football, girls’ swimming and diving, field hockey, girls’ cross country, boys’ cross country, golf, girls’ soccer, boys’ soccer, girls’ tennis and girls’ volleyball teams all received state scholar athlete awards. There were 115 individual Blue Devil athletes recognized too. All will receive state pins.
To receive team recognition, the squad’s average GPA for 75 percent of the roster must be equal to or greater than 90.00. Higher athlete GPAs can be used offset lower ones. However, only students with a 90 or above receive scholar athlete pins, even if a student with a lower GPA was used in the calculation.
“I am so incredibly proud of our student-athletes and our coaches for their commitment to success in the classroom, as the ‘student’ component always comes first,” Huntington Superintendent James W. Polansky said. “Their ability to set priorities and model resilience is beyond impressive and will continue benefit them in both the short and long terms.”
