The New York State Public High School Athletic Association, Inc. honored the
Sachem Central School District and specifically, Sachem High School East, in its recent naming of Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction and School of Excellence Award winners.
Sachem High School East was designated a School of Distinction for having 100% of its varsity teams qualify and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports season. This year, only 86 schools in the state earned this honor.
Meanwhile, the Sachem Central School District as a whole received the School of Excellence Award for having 75% of varsity teams qualify and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award.
These awards unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve a
statewide honor. School of Distinction winners will be presented a certificate and commemorative award this fall, whereas School of Excellence winners will be awarded a plaque.
