Susquehannock grad Katie Wagner recognized by CAC


Three York College athletes have earned weekly awards from the Capital Athletic Conference, including Susquehannock High School graduate Katie Wagner.

Wagner, a sophomore two-sport standout, was named the CAC Women's Tennis Player of the Week after leading the Spartans to a 3-0 week and securing the match-clinching point in a victory over St. Mary's in the first round of the CAC Tournament.

With the match against St. Mary's knotted at 4-4, Wagner earned the decisive singles victory with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) win at the No. 1 position, sending the Spartans to the semifinals. Earlier in the match, she teamed with Darian Naill for an 8-3 win at No. 1 doubles. Wagner posted a combined 6-0 mark throughout the week as the Spartans also swept past Penn State Harrisburg and McDaniel. She dropped just one total game in those two No. 1 singles matches.

For the year, Wagner is 11-3 in No. 1 singles matches and Wagner and Naill are 11-4 in No. 1 doubles matches.

Wagner is also a basketball standout for the Spartans.

Two York College track and field athletes were also recognized.

Sophomore Grant Dell is the CAC Men's Track Athlete of the Week. Dell had back-to-back outstanding performances in the last two weeks. On Friday, April 9, in Princeton, New Jersey, Dell ran the 5K in a time of 15 minutes, 5 seconds for a personal record at the Sam Howell Invitational.

Dell posted a time of 3:55.16, which is the top time in the CAC and puts him in the top 20 nationally in the event.
