The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) recognizes six Chatham varsity teams as Scholar Athlete Teams for the Fall, 2019 athletic season. A team is deemed scholarly when at least 75 percent of the athletes on the roster hold a collective grade point average (GPA) of 90 or better. The Panthers’ girls tennis, girls volleyball, boys soccer, girls soccer, boys cross country, and golf teams will each receive a certificate from the NYSPHSAA honoring this accomplishment. In addition, any varsity athlete who held a personal GPA of 90 or above is eligible to receive a scholar athlete pin from the NYSPHSAA. Including our football (9 pins) and cheerleading teams (1 pin), a total of 64 Panthers earned a pin this season.
