Tejeda and Zakes Named Athletes of the Week

GCC baseball infielder Manuel Tejeda and women's lacrosse goalie Sara Zakes have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Apr. 10.

Tejeda helped the GCC baseball team to three wins last week in two doubleheaders against Region III opponents. 

He hit .429 (6-14), scored four runs and drove in five. Tejeda also laid down a suicide squeeze bunt that scored the game-winning run in a walk-off win against SUNY Broome in the second game of a doubleheader against the Hornets.

Genesee will travel to SUNY Broome, Tompkins Cortland CC and Erie CC, and host Tompkins Cortland CC and Monroe CC this week.

Zakes helped lead the GCC women's lacrosse team to its first win since the 2015 season after the Cougars defeated Mohawk Valley CC on the road last week.

She faced 21 shots in net and made 15 saves, allowing just six goals in a 15-6 win. Zakes has stopped 33 shots in three games so far this spring.

Genesee will host Erie CC and North Country CC this week.
