On Monday NYSPHSAA released its list of winter 2018 season scholar athlete teams and individuals.

According to NYSPHSAA:

To be recognized as a Scholar-Athlete team, 75% of a team’s roster is required when computing a team’s average GPA, which must be 90.0 or greater. Student-athletes with 90.0 or greater GPA are still recognized as Scholar-Athlete recipients even if their team did not qualify for the Scholar-Athlete team award.
