St. Saviour High School alumnae Cassandra Nasta was named to the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association Women’s Volleyball National All-Academic Team. Collegiate team members must have sophomore academic standing or higher and maintain a minimum cumulative 3.5 grade point average in order to qualify.

Standing O sends out three cheers and a sneaker to borough native Adrienne Walsh for not only competing in this year’s New York City Marathon, but for finishing in record time of 4:31:03 as well. Standing O couldn’t finish it if she was in a taxi. Standing O pal and helping booster Borough President Markowitz presented Adrienne her running bib for the marathon at Borough Hall. Adrienne represented Brooklyn in the Foot Locker Five Borough Challenge, in which one runner from each of New York’s five boroughs competed in the unique “race within the race” at the Marathon that took place on Nov. 3.
Standing O says, “Good fortune Adrienne, long may you run.”
