Ubukata and Boyenko Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College softball infielder Shiori Ubukata and men's lacrosse attack Baden Boyenko have been named the Female and Male Athlete of the Week for the week of Apr. 24.

Ubukata helped the GCC softball team to a 4-2 week last week, batting .429 with nine total hits, including one for extra bases.

She scored seven total runs, drove in four, and stole a base in Genesee's six games, which included a win over No. 2 nationally ranked Herkimer College. Ubukata currently holds a .438 batting average this spring and has collected 12 extra base hits and 13 runs batted in.

Genesee will travel to Corning CC, Erie CC and Hudson Valley CC and host Lakeland CC this week.

Boyenko recorded nine points last week in No. 2 GCC's regular season finale, helping the Cougars to their 10th win of the year.

He scored seven goals and assisted on two in a 25-3 road win at Herkimer College. Boyenko now has 34 points this spring, the fourth most on the team.

Genesee will represent the No. 2 seed in the Region III playoffs and play the winner of No. 3 seed Monroe CC and No. 6 seed Finger Lakes CC on Saturday at Onondaga CC.
