Scholars' Academy's Athletics Department

The mission of the Public Schools Athletic League is to provide opportunities for educating students in physical fitness, character development and socialization skills through an athletic program that fosters teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship.
The goal of the C.H.A.M.P.S. Middle School Sports & Fitness program is to improve student fitness levels and overall health by increasing opportunities for children to engage in physical activity, regardless of athletic ability. The program promotes health-related fitness through a mix of several after-school and before-school activities including traditional sports, non-traditional sports, and fitness activities. The ultimate goal is for students to grow to be C.H.A.M.P.S. — Cooperative, Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive Students — for life.

The Undefeated



Mr. Goodman with the 2010 Scholars' Academy Boys Middle School basketball team

In a competitive match, The Scholars Academy Boys Middle School Basketball team defeated M.S. 105 to claim the Peninsula championship.  The Scholars Seawolves finished with an undefeated record of 9-0, lead by eighth grader C.J. Davis. The Peninsula league, in its fifth season, also includes volleyball, basketball, and wrestling.

M.S. 105 came into the championship game with a 7-1 record looking to topple the undefeated Seawolves; but the Seawolves dug in on defense and went into halftime with a lead.   Scholars’ Academy pulled away in the second half, thanks to Michael Buckley’s sharp shooting and tenacious rebounding by Adam Cruz and James Thompson.  The Seawolves defense, lead by point guard Pat Cashin and Andre Olatunbosun, limited the potent M.S. 105 Sharks offense, which helped seal the deal.  M.S. 105 stayed close towards the end by outscoring Scholars’ in the fourth quarter. Coach Drew Goodman, Assistant Principal at Scholars summarized the season, “I think the best part of the season was that the players enjoyed coming to practice and saw the results of their hard work.”
