The Hampton Bays School District is pleased to announce that three teams have been commended by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) for having best exemplified the spirit of sportsmanship during the fall 2010-2011 winter sports season.

The promotion of good sportsmanship is one of the major goals of NYSPHSAA, which recognizes schools annually for their commitment to building exemplary sportsmanship programs. A sportsmanship committee established by NYSPHSAA selects teams for this prestigious distinction.

Congratulations to the following teams: Varsity Boys Basketball and their coach Peter Meehan, Junior Varsity Wrestling and their coaches Rafael Lievano and Paul Hoshyla, and the eighth-grade Girls Volleyball team and their coach Andy Fotopoulos.
