CCNY Scholar-Athletes Make CUNYAC All-Star Team

Four City College of New York scholar-athletes have been named 2014 CUNYAC/US Army cross country All-Stars. Sophomore Bianca Johnson (early childhood biology) and freshmen Samuel Gotts (history), Thomas Sullivan (mechanical engineering) and Joseph Benson (electrical engineering) earned the honors after the CUNYAC championships in Van Cortlandt Park.

In addition, Mr. Benson, an electrical engineering major, was voted the Men’s Cross Country Sportsmanship Award recipient by CUNAC coaches. That is a rare feat for a freshman in the conference.

Dr. Kevin H. Abdur-Rahman, City College’s director of athletics, hailed the All-Stars.

“I’m extremely proud to have the caliber of student-athletes we have, especially this early in my administration,” he said.
