The New York State Public High School Athletic Association has presented the award of Scholar-Athlete Team to four Rocky Point winter season teams.
This honor is presented to New York State teams who possess a cumulative GPA of 90 percent or better.
Congratulations to the following teams on this achievement:
Team GPA Boys Indoor Track 94.083 Girls Basketball 94.056 Girls Indoor Track 92.905 Winter Cheerleading 92.464
Also, after two straight years as National Champions, the Rocky Point varsity cheerleaders finished third at Nationals this year. The team missed first by a 0.7 point difference.
“You couldn’t help but be proud of our squad,” said Amy Agnesini, district
director of health, physical education, athletics and intramurals. “Perhaps the ultimate compliment came when a team from Kentucky approached our squad after the competition and asked to take pictures with them because they ‘wanted to be as good as them one day.’ We have a national reputation and our girls and coaches live up to it every day.”
