WRAL: Men’s golf team wins academic award

The NCSSM men’s golf team

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) awarded the 2015 NCSSM men’s golf team with its scholar-athlete team designation. The award recognizes varsity teams that attain certain grades, as well as individual athletes.

Individual scholar-athletes attained at least a 3.5 grade point average for the semester in which he or she competed.  In the team division, a varsity team earns scholar-athlete recognition by attaining a 3.1 aggregate GPA for that designated semester.  The team achieving the highest grade point average in the state in its particular sport and submitting its application by the appropriate deadline receives a plaque commemorating that achievement.

“We are extremely proud of the achievements of the student-athletes recognized in this way,” said Que Tucker, NCHSAA interim commissioner. “Our scholar-athlete program clearly shows that we have a large number of athletes who are both participating in our athletic programs and succeeding in the classroom.”
