Players To Watch (Women): Freshman Tristiana Adragna has been terrific for the Dolphins and took CUNYAC Rookie of the Week a couple of weeks ago thanks to a CSI top time of 28:29.3. Senior Rebecca Vidal continues to shave her time as well and is hoping for a great race at Clove Lakes Park, where she has performed well in the past.
Players To Watch (Men): Luke Jackson had a great debut for the Dolphins two weeks ago, when he raced in at 29:07.7 in the York College 8K invitational, CSI’ top time and good for 9th overall. Liam McMunn will continue to be a threat for CSI as will Khaled Halwani and Kenneth Morella who seem to be neck-and-neck with each race.
