SARATOGA SPRINGS — On August 8,  the New York State Public High School Athletic Association, Inc. (NYSPHSAA) announced its 2021-22 Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction and School of Excellence Award winners, and Saratoga Springs High School has received this honorable statewide distinction as a School of Excellence for the 2021-2022 school year.

To earn this distinction, 75% of a school’s varsity teams must qualify and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award. According to NYSPHSAA, the purpose of the School of Excellence Awards is to unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve statewide honor, and to compete just as hard in the classroom as they do in their respective sports.

“The School of Excellence and School of Distinction Awards highlight the best student-athletes in New York State,” said Dr. Robert Zayas, NYSPHSAA Executive Director in a statement. “For 234 member schools to be honored for their commitment to academics as well as athletics is a testament to the outstanding leadership and student-athletes we have in this state.” To view the complete list of high schools that made this year’s list, visit:
