Several athletes for the CIA sports teams have been honored by the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC).
In early October, the Steels swept both the men's and women's cross country Runners of the Week awards. Sophomore Grant Rico
(Silverdale, WA) and freshman Olivia José
(St. Fords, NJ) were recognized for their great races at the Mt. St. Mary Invitational on October 4. Later in the month, Rico finished 11th in the men's conference championship race. José finished eighth in the women's championship, just ahead of fellow freshmen teammates Cheyenne Boinais
(Clawson, MI) and Angela Piccinich
(Farmingdale, NJ). The strong finish by three freshmen bodes well for the Steels heading into the 2015 season.
Sophomore volleyball player Emily Brown
(Clarence, NY) was named to the All-Conference Team, after the Steels finished their season with a 6-7 record. For the week of October 21, freshman Marcela Andonie
(San Pedro Sula, Honduras) was named the women’s volleyball Rookie of the Week.
The men's soccer team, meanwhile, won the HVIAC regular season with a 5-1 record (8-4-1 overall), and headed into the conference tournament as the top seed, before falling in an overtime penalty shootout to Berkeley. The Steels were led this season by sophomore striker Dan Landon
(Johnsburgh, IL) with 15 goals, and the strong goalkeeping of sophomore Jonathan Bedell
(Naperville, IL) with a 1.25 goals against average and three shutouts.
