The Genesee Community College baseball team wrapped up its first weekend of play with a 7-5 win over Middlesex County in South Carolina with a 13-hit performance March 11.

Jayson Libert recorded the win from the mound with three innings of work while allowing four hits to go with three strikeouts. Libert also hit a 3-RBI triple.

Four Cougars registered a pair of hits each that included: Bryant Fontanez, Nate Darwin, L'Shandry Kirindongo and Shannon Folkes.

In the 3-1 season-opening loss to Ocean County March 10, Folks led the team with a pair of hits that included a double, while scoring the team's only run.

The following day in the first of two games, Genesee dropped a 7-5 contest to Northampton. Bryant Fontanez hit the team's first homerun of the season while adding four RBI. Kirindongo added a pair of hits, while single hits came from Folkes and Jakob MacLeod.
