Halsted and Modesto Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College men's soccer goalkeeper Connor Halsted and volleyball outside hitter Amanda Modesto have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 19.

Halsted helped the No. 1 men's soccer team to a pair of wins last week, ending a perfect regular season for the Cougars.

He made five saves in a shutout win over Finger Lakes CC and stopped three shots in a 3-1 road win at No. 5 Herkimer College.

Genesee finishes the regular season 17-0 and will now move on to the Region III tournament.

Modesto led the GCC volleyball team to a perfect 5-0 week last week with strong play in each of the Cougars' matches.

She had 23 kills and 10 digs in a five-set road win at Finger Lakes CC and totaled 36 kills, 27 digs, seven blocks and five aces in three wins at the FLCC POD event.

Genesee (28-7-2) will compete in the WNYAC tournament this Saturday at Monroe CC.
