Two Cardinals Earn Athlete of the Week Honors

TOWSON, Md. - The Catholic Unversity Track and Field team earned two Landmark Conference Athlete of the Week honors following a strong performance at the Holiday Meet on Saturday.

Senior Andrea Galeano earned the Women's Field Athlete of the Week after winning silver in the shot put. In her first meet of the season, she recorded a personal record with a mark of 10.82m.

Junior Cosmo Pirozzi was named the Men's Track Athlete of the Week. He earned a gold in the 4x400m Relay with a time of 3:32.60, and a bronze in the 800m. Pirozzi has made a great transition from a successful cross country season and will look to continue to improve as the team heads into winter break.

Catholic will not return to action until Saturday, January 19 at the Collegeville Classic hosted by Ursinus College.
