Knutson and Gadd Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College outside hitter Kristi Knutson and men's soccer forward Edward Gadd have been named the Female and Male Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 3.

Knutson helped the GCC volleyball team to a pair of wins last week, including a 2-1 record at its home Region III POD event.

She tallied 30 digs and 21 kills in a five set match against Mercyhurst University North East and then totaled 31 kills, 30 digs, nine aces and seven blocks in three POD matches. The Cougars finished the week 2-2 and improved to 5-8 in Region III play.

GCC will travel to the Cara Bryant Tournament at Onondaga CC this week.

Gadd scored his first two goals of the season last week to help lead the No. 4 GCC men's soccer team to a win in its only contest.

He fired three shots on net and scored twice in a 6-0 road win at No. 10 Erie CC. The win improved Genesee's record to 7-0-2 this season.

GCC will travel to Jamestown CC and host Onondaga CC this week.
