JAMESTOWN – Seven Jamestown High School athletes on the fall varsity sports teams have qualified as All Western New York Scholars as awarded by Section VI.
The winners are Andrew Pumford, Football. Honorable mentions were given to Isaac Johnson, Boys Cross Country; Kiana Vullo, Girls Soccer; Makenna Graham, Girls Swimming’ Alyson Edwards, Girls Tennis; Olivia Gren, Girls Tennis and Sophie Valone, Girls Tennis.
To qualify, each senior’s overall grade point average must be 90 or above for six consecutive semesters and the athletes must be starters or “important reserves.”
“Being named to the All-Western New York Academic Team is a special honor,” said Jamestown Public Schools Athletic Director Ben Drake. “These young men and women truly epitomize what the term, student-athlete, means. Not only are they great athletes, but these seniors also maintained an overall grade point average of 90% or higher during their four years at JHS. They are great role models for our younger athletes and we are all very proud of them.”
Correction: Jamestown Public Schools originally reported Alyson Edwards was a scholar athlete in swimming when she was a scholar athlete in tennis. We regret the error.
