Genesee Community College head softball coach Taylor Maurer introduced her latest recruit from Alexander High School – Carli Marino.
The three-sport athlete has been recognized multiple times while at Alexander that includes accolades beyond the court or diamond, and into the academic realm.
In the latter category, she has received awards and honors in the following areas: academic leadership, presidential ward, academic progress and an award of distinction.
Athletically, the high school senior has received two or more distinctions as most valuable, most improved, while also garnering a pair of coaches' awards. In addition, she has landed on the all-star team for Greater Rochester on at least one occasion.
Whether it was with her school or travel team, she has been a force on the diamond in whatever position she has played; having thrown her first high school no-hitter during her junior season against Holley.
She also threw a pair of no-hitters with her travel team in help leading them to a league crown and Coach Maurer is hopeful her success and experience will help pay dividends with the Cougars next season.
Marino looks to pursue a science degree or concentration while attending GCC next fall.
