The workshop was an opportunity to highlight Shoreham-Wading River High School as one of the 20 Section XI high schools to achieve the honor of being named a 2022-23 School of Distinction.
This is the third consecutive year that Shoreham-Wading River received the status by having 100% of its varsity teams qualify for and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports seasons.
The School of Distinction Award was established to unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve a statewide academic honor. According to Dr. Robert Zayas, NYSPHSAA executive director, the program highlights and celebrates schools that value the importance of academics as well as athletics.
