Shoreham-Wading River High School was again named a School of Distinction by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. The school was one of only 15 Section XI high schools and one of only 31 on Long Island to achieve the honor. This is the second consecutive year the high school received the status by having 100% of its varsity teams qualify for and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports seasons.

NYSPHSAA’s School of Distinction Award highlights and celebrates schools that value the importance of academics as well as athletics.

Mr. Mark Passamonte, the District’s Director of Health, Physical Education, Athletics and Nurses, will be presented a certificate and a commemorative award at the NYSPHSAA local athletic director workshop in the fall. The school district congratulates its 27 athletic varsity team members for their hard work in achieving this honor.
