Eastridge Wins State Honor

Eastridge High School has been named the recipient of the 2019 Joseph Abraham Award, given annually by the New York State Athletic Trainers’ Association to the high school that has provided outstanding athletic injury care to the student – athletes of their school.

Eastridge is the first school in Section V to be presented with this award, but that shouldn’t be too much of a surprise since the district has always been a leader in making sure student-athletes are properly cared for.  In fact, in 2007 it was one of the first three districts in the section to hire a full-time athletic trainer when Jarrett Rhoads was brought on board.

Anyone who has been an athlete or a parent of one can attest to the commitment that “JR” has shown to make sure they are not only performing to the best of their abilities, but doing so safely.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the athletic programs at Eastridge for this incredible honor.
