Members of Rome Free Academy varsity sport teams who achieved scholar athlete status for their fall academic achievements included 110 student athletes from 12 teams, said school district Superintendent Peter C. Blake.

In addition, scholar team awards were received by the girls varsity teams for gymnastics, soccer, cross-country, swimming/diving, and tennis, plus the boys varsity soccer and cross-country teams, the Rome superintendent added.

The recognition by the Section 3 athletic organization is for achieving either a combined 90 percent academic average as a team or as an individual, Blake noted in his online blog.

“Congratulations to all of the athletes who represent our school and community. Keep up the great work,” Blake
