Every year, thousands of New York City’s public high school students don their school colors and participate in hundreds of sporting events for bragging rights, glory, and lifelong memories that would feel right at home in scenes from classic 1980’s teen movies.
These athletic contests, which provide participating students with opportunities for exercise, character development, and socialization, are organized by the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL), the DOE’s official interscholastic high school athletics organization. Thanks to the PSAL, approximately 45,000 City student-athletes get the opportunity to compete against one another across 25 varsity sports every school year.
In celebration of a great school year, The Morning Bell is proud to present the following list of the City’s Varsity and Multiple Pathways League-level champions from the 2016–17 school year. Congratulations to all of our student-athletes for a wonderful season!
