The College of Staten Island women’s volleyball squad finalized their season earlier this week as part of CUNYAC Postseason play, and today learned that a pair of upperclassmen have been named to conference’s All-Star teams. Senior setter Brittany Minondo was selected as a 2nd-team all-conference selection, while junior libero Victoria Wong was named to the CUNYAC’s All-Sportsmanship Team.
Wrapping up a terrific career that saw her numbers blossom with each year, Minondo was the team assist leader with 364 assists and her play behind the service line was sensational. Minondo tallied 69 service aces, good for 0.88 per set which ranked 8th in NCAA Division III. Alongside the numbers were a final tally of 37 kills and 170 defensive digs to go with six total blocks. Minondo tallied a career-high 11 aces alone in a win over Purchase College and scored a season-high 33 helpers in a win over St. Joseph’s College (BK) on September 23.
Recognizing outstanding performance alongside superior sportsmanship, CSI’s Wong has been a fixture in the center of the defensive line. Alongside her on-the-court exploits which included a team-high 296 digs which coincided with a healthy 39 aces, Wong also serves as President of CSI Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and a member of the College’s Hall of Fame Committee. She helped with team organizational in-season community service efforts, such as CSI’s annual Walk4 match that raised awareness for spinal cord research.
Hunter College’s Julia Connelly took home the CUNYAC’s Player of the Year award, while her teammate Miranda Hogan took Rookie of the Year honors. Baruch College Head Coach Carrie Thomas was the conference’s Coach of the Year. For a complete listing of CUNYAC All-Stars, click here.
