Byron-Bergen students earn Scholar-Athlete awards
Every winter varsity team at Byron-Bergen Senior High School achieved the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete Team Award.
The winter sports teams are boys basketball, girls basketball, boys swimming, girls swimming and wrestling.
“To say that this has been a challenging year for students would be a gross understatement,” athletic director Rich Hannan said. “We all know what kids have lost in this year, so the fact that these athletes stuck to their high academic standards is so impressive. I couldn't be prouder of them in this time of uncertainty. They are doing, and have done, an amazing job.”
