CIA Volleyballer is HVIAC Player of the Year

HVIAC 2015Student-athletes at the CIA continue to earn honors for their sports success. In women's volleyball, junior Emily Brown (Clarence, NY) was named the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) Co-Player of the Year. For Brown, it's her third straight year on the All-Conference Team. She was joined on the All-Conference Team this year by sophomore Marcela Andonie (San Pedro Sula, Honduras).

The Steels went all the way to the conference championship match, before falling to College of New Rochelle. The CIA beat Pratt Institute in the semifinals and finished the season with a 9-7 overall record. Earlier in October, junior Trish Tran (Germantown, MD) was selected as HVIAC Rookie of the Week for a 21-assist, seven-ace performance in a win over Cooper Union.

In cross country, senior Jonathan Allmond (Baltimore, MD) was named HVIAC Runner of the Week after completing the eight-kilometer course at the Mount Saint Mary Invitational in 31:59. The fall season wrapped up with Allmond repeating as the CIA’s top finisher as the Steels men’s cross country team finished 3rd in the conference championship race. The women’s team took 4th place in the championship.

The soccer team finished with a 4-6-2 overall record, just missing the playoffs after a 1-1 draw against Vaughn College. Midfielder Brent Goodbrake (Tuscaloosa, AL) and defender Michael Graham (Phoenixville, PA), both freshmen, were named to the 2015 All-Conference Team.
