RUTHERFORD, N.J. – High-school seniors Katie Rohsler (Fredon, N.J./Kittatinny Regional) and Sabrina Roldañ (Woodbridge, N.J./Woodbridge) have signed national letters of intent to continue their cross-country careers at Felician College, Felician head coach John Brennan announced today.
Felician is a member of NCAA Division II and competes in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. The Golden Falcon women finished 11th in the team standings in the 2012 CACC Championship meet, and were 27th at the NCAA Division II East Regional. Brennan has been the coach for the last 11 seasons of Felician's 13-year program history
"We return five runners who have now gained significant collegiate experience," Brennan said. "With the addition of Katie and Sabrina, and the improvement of our returning team, we are setting our sights on better conference and regional finishes in the future."
Both runners enjoyed decorated high-school careers. Rohsler attained all-conference honors in all four of her seasons at Kittatinny Regional of Newton, including three first-team selections. Her teams won three division championships during her career. The 5-foot-2 Rohsler is also a member of The Polar Bears, a track & field club based out of Fredon. She intends to major in psychology at Felician.
"Katie comes from a good high school program," Brennan said. "We look forward to having her on our squad, and anticipate that she can make an immediate impact in our program."
Roldañ, 5-foot-4, was an all-Greater Middlesex Conference competitor for Woodbridge High. As a senior, she was also chosen to the Home News Tribune all-area first team and the Star-Ledger all-county first team. She expects to study business administration.
"Sabrina is a talented runner who I have no doubt will make a quick adjustment to the college scene," Brennan said. "She has the potential to be a contender on the conference level."
