Knutson and Speakman Tabbed Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College women's volleyball S/OH Kristi Knutson and men's soccer midfielder Jack Speakman have been named the Female and Male Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 5

Knutson helped the GCC women's volleyball team to a 4-0 week with strong performances in each of the Cougars' matches.

She had eight kills and two aces in a road win at Mercyhurst North East and recorded 23 kills, nine digs, eight assists and five aces in three matches at the Mohawk Valley CC POD event.

Genesee is 20-4-2 on the season and currently in second place in the Region III Division III standings.

Speakman recorded four points in GCC's only contest last week, a win over Roberts Wesleyan JV.

He scored two goals in the 6-0 win, a win that improved the No. 2 Cougars' overall record to 12-0 this fall. Speakman has recorded at least one point in his last four games played.

Genesee will travel to SUNY Adirondack and Onondaga CC and host Jamestown CC this week.
