"The achievement of our fall athletes means our district is eligible for NYSPHSAA’s prestigious Scholar/Athlete Team “School of Achievement” award, which is given to schools who have all their teams qualify for all three sports seasons of the school year," said Galway CSD Athletic Director/Dean of Students Lucas LaBarre. "The athletic program at Galway is founded on the principle that the playing field is an extension of the classroom, and participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege earned by being a good student and a good citizen. The Galway school community is very proud of this group of young men and women who have demonstrated, through their achievement, their dedication to these guiding principles. Congratulations to all the athletes who succeed both on the field and in the classroom, and to the coaches, parents, volunteers, and community members who make our sports programs possible."
At the end of each sport season, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) honors those teams that excel in the classroom. The minimum team grade average needed to qualify for the NYSPHSAA Scholar/Athlete Team Award is 90.
