Van Bortle led the No. 4 GCC men's lacrosse offense with four points on the road at No. 2 Onondaga CC last week.

He scored three goals and added an assist in a close loss on the road. Van Bortle also finished with three ground balls. He has scored three or more goals in every game of the season so far for the Cougars.

She recorded three multi-hit games, scored four runs and drove in three. Dow also collected three extra-base hits. She is hitting .500 so far this season, which leads the team.
