Lynbrook High School student-athletes showcased their determination and skills this past fall, winning notable team and individual awards. Eight fall teams earned the New York State Scholar Team Athlete Award. This included the girls cross country, soccer, swim, tennis and volleyball teams and the boys cross country, soccer and football teams. To receive this distinction from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association, the team’s average GPA for 75 percent of the roster must be greater than or equal to 90. 

In addition, four student-athletes received the title of scholar athlete from the NYSPHSAA for maintaining a 90 or above GPA. Scholar-athletes included Katie Bamman (girls soccer), Sara Bahri (girls volleyball), Spencer Chrein (boys soccer) and Siobhan Stapleton (girls swimming). The girls tennis team had a successful season, ending as conference champions and several fall student-athletes were recognized in their respective sports.
