After being idle for almost a calendar month, the College of Staten Island women’s cross-country squad finalized their season this morning with a 7th-place faring at the CUNYAC Championship Meet held at Van Cortlandt Park. It was a meet that featured a tremendous performance from sophomore Tristiana Adragna, who set season and personal-best times en route to a 12th-place finish overall in the 71-person race.
Adragna came in with a time of 27:58.7, just 24 seconds behind the Top 10 pace. The race was CSI’s best 6k all season, and it was the fastest 6k of Adragna’s young career. The finish earned her an All-Star medal at the conclusion of the race, won overall by Hunter College by a wide margin.
Jessica Lin came in next for CSI, closing out a solid freshman campaign with a final time of 35:51.2, good for 47th overall. CSI pair Kwan Ho and Victoria DeBernardo were next in. Ho turned in a 37:43.5 time for 54th, while DeBernardo came in at 38:10.9 for 55th.
Stephanie DaSilva rounded out the CSi scoring team with a run of 39:57.9 for 59th place, and in just beats after the freshman was sophomore Moet Askew, who came in at 40:40.0, finalizing in 61st place.
Hunter’s Julia Leask won the race with a time of 24:28.7, leading the Hawks to first place with a 16-point score. CCNY took the silver with 70 points, while Medgar Evers placed third with 109. CSI finished with 141 points.
The CUNYAC Cross-Country Championships were originally slated for October 29, but were postponed due to inclement weather. The Dolphins hadn’t raced since October 14.
