Beaumont School senior Addison Ciecierski signed a National Letter of Intent to run cross country and track at Duquesne University on Monday (Nov. 18) afternoon.
Duquesne, located in Pittsburgh, is a Division I school that competes in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
Ciecierski, a Concord Township native and the daughter of Tony and Karen Ciecierski, excelled during her years as Blue Streak.
She burst onto the scene the fall of her freshman year when she took 12th at the Division II State Cross Country Championships.
Ciecierski won the Division II District Meet held at Lorain County Community College in her sophomore and junior seasons. The two-time district champ would go on to finish 11th in the state as a sophomore in 2017 and 20th as a junior in 2018, making her a three-time state medalist.
She placed third overall at the Youngstown Regional Meet in 2018 and this October, she finished second in the field of 151 runners while leading the Blue Streaks to a regional title.
Beaumont was the eighth best team in Division II in 2018 and finished seventh at the State Meet this fall.
On Nov. 16, Ciecierski ran for Team Ohio in the Mid-East Cross Country Championships, an all-star race for seniors from across the region. She finished 12th overall and was the top Ohioan in a talented field.
She is a standout on the track, too.
At the 2018 Division II Track and Field Championships, Ciecierski ran third on Beaumont’s 4×800 relay team that took third in the state. Last spring, she ran second on the fourth best 4×800 relay quartet in Division II.
At the end of her freshman season, Ciecierski’s 4×800 relay team finished fifth in Columbus.
Ciecierski intends to pursue a degree in health science at Duquesne University.
