Byron-Bergen announces scholar-athlete awards
Every varsity sports team at Byron-Bergen Senior High School achieved the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete Team Award for fall 2020.
The Fall Season 1 teams are boys and girls cross-country, gymnastics, and boys and girls soccer. Due to current state guidelines, cheerleading, football and volleyball are designated as Fall Season 2 sports and are scheduled for the spring.
“It has been a unique fall sports season,” athletic director Rich Hannan said. “These athletes could have made excuses to coast in academics or athletics, and they didn’t. They got it done. They are excellent students and role models.”
