Each year approximately 60 senior state qualifiers from all regions of New York State apply for one of the most prestigious awards given to a swimmer or diver.
The award, the NYS Scholar Athlete award, is given to the female competitor with the most decorated résumé that includes grades, athletics, community service and additional extra curricular categories.
This year’s NYS Scholar Athlete recipient was awarded to Manhasset senior, Elizabeth Henry. Elizabeth is the first MHS swimmer/diver to earn this recognition and first female swimmer or diver from Nassau County to be recognized since 1994. Congratulations Elizabeth!
