21 CUNYAC Student Athletes Capture 43 All-American Honors
The best season ever for the City University Athletic Conference (CUNYAC)
has just been completed, with 21 athletes garnering a total of 43 All-American
honors this academic year. These students came from four community colleges
(Borough of Manhattan, Bronx, Kingsborough, Queensborough) and two senior
colleges (Lehman and York).
All but one of these honors came in track and field. The loner was
BMCC basketball forward Fanta Sissoko. A highlight of the track season
was Lehman Colleges team placing second not once but twice at
NCAA Championships. Its head coach, Lesleigh Hogg, boasts the most honorees
with six, including two of CUNYACs most decorated sportswomen,
11-time All-American senior Paulette Baldwin (also 2003 NCAA Indoor
Track Athlete of the Year), and sophomore Alecia Watson, a 9-time All-American.
