| August 8, 2022

We are excited to announce that Mohonasen has been awarded the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s (NYSPHSAA) School of Excellence Award.

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 a statewide honor. 

“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. “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.”

Mohonasen Superintendent Shannon Shine expressed his enthusiasm regarding NYSPHSAA’s recognition, saying, “Mohonasen’s athletes are a continuing source of district pride and NYSPHSAA’s formal designation only underscores the quality of our student-athletes.”

The School of Excellence winners will be awarded a plaque at their local athletic director workshop.
