Weedsport to be designated ‘School of Excellence’ following successful sports seasons

Weedsport Jr.-Sr. High School will soon receive a high honor due to the success of its student-athletes during the 2020-21 school year. Across all seasons of play, 14 out of the 15 sports teams were named scholar-athlete teams. Teams are only given this status when at least 75% of their players have a GPA of 90 or above.

“I think this shows the positive impact playing a sport has on students’ academic careers,” said Athletic Director Zachary Young. “A big congratulations to our student-athletes and the staff who helped get them here.”

Due to the high number of student-athlete teams, Weedsport will be designated a ‘School of Excellence.’ To receive this standing, at least 75% of varsity teams must qualify as scholar-athlete teams.

The school will be able to apply for recognition on June 30th.
