The College of Staten Island women’s cross-country team recently concluded its season, and on the heels of the campaign comes the news of sophomore Tristiana Adragna earning a CUNYAC All-Star citation. Adragna was joined by teammate Moet Askew, who was named to the conference’s All-Sportsmanship Team.
A two-sport star who helped lead the women’s tennis team to a CUNYAC Regular Season Championship, Adragna has been CSI’s torch-bearer on the racing circuit throughout the year. Adragna had CSI’s best times of the season in both the 5K and the 6K this year, boasting the top two times in 6K runs this year. The most impressive came in time for the CUNYAC Final, when Adragna ran a 6K in 28:03.15, breaking her own career personal-best time by almost nine full seconds. It was CSI’s best 6K race all season, and it placed Adragna 12th overall in the field of 71 harriers at the CUNYAC Championship.
Askew, a fellow sophomore like Adragna was named to the All-Sportsmanship team, which recognizes a total of seven athletes who exemplify great leadership and sportsmanship throughout the season, serving as ambassadors for team unity and the sport at the conference level.
Runner of the Year honors were bestowed to Hunter College’s Julia Leask. The Hawks also claimed Rookie of the Year honors for Emily Tavares and Coach of the Year honors for Daniel Selsky, who led the team to a conference championship at season’s end.
