Czajka Signs to Attend UHart

Senior Christie Czajka signed a national letter of intent to attend the University of Hartford on Jan. 9, where she will compete for the Division I Hawks in cross-country and track and field. She was congratulated at the ceremony by her family, coaches and Athletic Director Stephen Restivo.

A member of the Lady Redmen’s varsity girls cross-country and track teams teams since eighth grade, and captain of both teams for the last three years, Czajka earned the Cary Award for Leadership as well as Scholar-Athlete recognition. She was named All-Division in the 800-meter, 4x400, 4x800; All-League in the 600-meter, 1,000-meter and 1,500-meter; and division champion and school record holder in the 4x800. She has earned high honor roll and is a member of the school’s Foreign Language Honor Society. While at UHart, she plans to major in business.

“I chose the University of Hartford because of the Barney School of Business, which is ranked as one of the top business schools in the country,” said Czajka. “I am excited that I was accepted into the Business School along with the honors program. I was also impressed with Stacie Wentz, the head coach of Hartford’s women’s and men’s cross-country and track and field teams. She’s very knowledgeable, takes academics very seriously and is very organized. I am also looking forward to see the university’s new track and field facility that is being built.”
