Joe Cardascia Named Athlete of the Year
Senior Joe Cardascia was named the The Journal News/lohud Westchester/Putnam Athlete of the Year.
“In a winter in which high school track athletes were happy to get near their personal-best time in any event (or even simply get a chance to compete), Joe Cardascia had a season to remember.”

This indoor track season Joe posted personal best times in four events. At the Adidas Indoor National meet, Joe ran the 400 meter in 48.93 seconds, the fifth fastest time ever clocked in Section 1 and fourth fastest in Westchester County. His 400 time at nationals also earned him 4th place an all American honors.
Varsity track coach Dom Zanot considers Joe one of the top athletes he has coached, “Joe Cardascia is an excellent example of a student-athlete who showed continuous growth and development from 9th grade through his senior year. His commitment and dedication to improvement before the pandemic was outstanding, but during the pandemic it increased exponentially. Joe Cardascia will not only go down as one of Harrison Track & Field's all time greats, but one of the all time greats in Westchester County.”
Joe will continue his career as a track athlete at SUNY Binghamton next year.
