Scholar Athletes Spring 2021

By CHS staff


Four Canisius High School student-athletes have been named Section VI Scholar Athletes for the 2020-21 Fall 2 sports season which was played this spring -- Ethan Weislo '21 and Noah Weislo '21 for volleyball, and Stephen Dobrasz '21 and Andrew Kerwin '21 (pictured) for football. And, two Canisius student-athletes from traditional spring sports earned Section VI Scholar Athlete status for the 2021 season -- Jacob LaDuca '21 for baseball and Noah Rockensuess '21 for track & field.

To be eligible for consideration for Scholar Athlete honors, a student must be a high school senior, carry an overall grade point average of 90 or above for six semesters, and be a starter or important reserve for his team.

In addition to the Scholar Athlete winners, the Canisius student-athletes listed below met the criteria to be nominated for the award and several earned Scholar Athlete Honorable Mentions (denoted with an * ).
