Sports Brief

Arthur Kapetanakis, Sports Editor

Three Hawks were recognized for their achievements over the course of this season at the 47th annual CU- NYAC Basketball Media Day on Feb. 16. Senior Mark Courtien received the Sportsmanship Award, and sophomore Kristen Markoe and senior Megan McKenna were named CUNYAC first and second team all-stars, respectively.

CUNYAC Commissioner Zack Ivkovic welcomed the crowd of selected CUNYAC players and their coaches, athletic directors and guests to the Water Club in east midtown, NY. After paying tribute to the coaches on hand and thanking the many spon- sors of the event, Ivkovic introduced keynote speaker Teresa Edwards, a five-time Olympic medalist with Team USA and a former WNBA player. In a short speech, Edwards congratulated the student-athletes for their accom- plishments and urged them to make the most of their opportunities, both in basketball and in life.
