Cougars Sign Webster Schroeder's Cheema

The GCC men's soccer program recently announced the signing of Webster Schroeder High School senior Gaurav Cheema, who will join the Cougars in the fall.

Cheema, a 6'1 goalkeeper from Webster, led Schroeder to the Section V Class AA Quarterfinals in 2016. A New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) scholar athlete, Gaurav is also a member of the Schroeder lacrosse team and was an all-state member of the WSHS band.

Cheema joins a GCC team that won a second straight Region III title in 2016 and made a second consecutive trip to the NJCAA National Tournament. The Cougars finished the fall season 16-2-2 and had three players receive NJCAA All-American Honors.

Gaurav will study Chemistry at GCC with hopes of one day becoming a pharmacist. He was a National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society student at WSHS.
