Carolina and Dunton Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College men's basktball guard Devante Carolina and women's swimmer Miranda Dunton have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Feb. 8.

Carolina averaged 13.5 points per game last week for the GCC men's basketball team and hit the game-winning shot at Mercyhurst North East to help lift the Cougars to a conference win.

He came off the bench to score 10 points against No. 6 Monroe CC and scored 17 points, including the game-winning three at the buzzer, on the road at MNE.

Genesee will travel to Erie CC and Jamestown CC and host Jamestown-Olean this week.

Dunton captured a pair of first place individual finishes last week for the GCC swimming and diving team and helped the Cougars to a second place finish in a tri-meet against Monroe CC and Jamestown CC.

She paced the 200 free with a finishing time of 2:11.00 and topped the 500 free with a finals time of 5:56.56. Dunton was also on the winning 200 medley relay team, which won by almost seven seconds (2:07.77).

Genesee will compete in the Region III championships this weekend at Monroe CC.
