Rocky Point School District’s Athletic Program has been awarded the Scholar-Athlete School Award of Distinction from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association.  

The award was presented to the district as all 23 Rocky Point varsity teams were recognized as NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete teams this school year. To receive the award, the team is required to have 75 percent or more of their members with a GPA above 90 percent.

“This award is a great honor for our district and congratulations go out to the student-athletes, coaches, teachers and parents on this incredible accomplishment,” said Charles Delargy, Rocky Point Director of Health, Physical Education, Intramurals and Athletics. “Thank you so much for your time, dedication and hard work in helping the students achieve this honor.”

In 2016, only 32 schools throughout the state received the honor, seven of which were in Suffolk County.
