With a pair of region wins over Tompkins-Cortland Community College and Corning Community College, the Cougars have identical National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association Region III records with Herkimer. Both Genesee and the Generals have recorded 9-8 region records and are in the eighth position in the standings with identical .529 winning percentages.
