MAHOPAC, N.Y. – Mahopac gymnasts are used to balancing, so it should come as no surprise that the teenagers were able to excel both academically and athletically this winter.

As a result of their hard work in the classroom, the Mahopac gymnastics team was named a Scholar-Athlete team by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. That means that the grade-point averages for 75 percent of the team’s roster averaged out to be 90 or above.

They also scored high marks on the mat, with seven gymnasts earning All-League honors: Jamison Castrataro, Nicole Giannetta, Lia Graap, Kaylie Ann Hammond, Juliette LeBlanc, Chloe Lee, and Rachel Romero.
