Sarina Rozek, a transfer student from St. Francis’ Division I volleyball program, was awarded the City University of New York Athletic Conference (CUNYAC) Women’s Volleyball Preseason Player of the Year Award.
“I was not expecting that at all,” she said. “It’s an honor to get the award, and I wouldn’t have done it without my team.”
Rozek had received a notification on Facebook from the women’s volleyball coach, Mateusz Gotowicki, wishing her congratulations. She wondered what that was about. “Was he joking?” she said. “I then searched it up online and there it was. I [couldn’t] believe [it was] real.”
