Wildcat pride was on full display as the Shoreham-Wading Central School District Board of Education celebrated the High School’s fall varsity sports teams for their exceptional work on the field and in the classroom at a recent meeting.

The Board celebrated the school’s scholar-athlete teams, an honor the 170 varsity students earned by 75 percent of them maintaining an average GPA of 90 percent or above during the season. In addition, ten teams were celebrated for their post season play, including the girls soccer team who earned the Suffolk County Class A Undefeated Champion title to numerous All State, All League, All County, All Conference and All Division honors. Five teams also received Section XI Sportsmanship Awards.

Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole commended the student-athletes for their outstanding abilities and stated that he looked forward to both the winter and spring sports seasons. Each student was also presented with a SWR School District commemorative pin.
