Spectrum Athlete of the Week: Syrita Faraj – Russell Sage
Sophomore guard Syrita Faraj put together a season unlike any other women’s basketball player to come before her at Russell Sage College. The Tamarac graduate was named Empire 8 Player of the Year this season after averaging a program record 20.2 points per game this season. She was also the first Sage women’s basketball player ever to earn honorable mention All-America honors. Her achievements both on and off the court make Syrita our Spectrum Athlete of the Week.
