HARRISON, N.Y. -- Congratulations are in order for many of the athletes and coaches at Harrison High School.
Nine of the school's 10 varsity teams have earned the distinction of "Scholar-Athlete Team" from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association.
This year, to achieve the honor, the average GPA of 75 percent of a team's total roster had to be at least a 90 percent.

- Varsity Girls Cross Country, 96.22 percent -- Head Coach Charles Bennett, Assistant Coach Timothy Poole-DiSalvo
- Varsity Girls Tennis, 94.98 percent -- Head Coach Quan Huynh
- Varsity Volleyball, 93.49 percent -- Head Coach Shari Light, Assistant Coach Jaclyn Cappichionni
