Richardson and Shimizu Tabbed Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College men's soccer forward Austin Richardson and volleyball setter Yu Shimizu have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Sept. 7.

Richardson tallied five goals last week for the GCC men's soccer team, helping the Cougars to a 3-0 week.

He recorded a hat-trick with three goals in a home win against Mohawk Valley Community College and added two more goals in a win against Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

Genesee is 6-0 to start the season and will travel to Onondaga Community College this week.

Shimizu was named to the All-Tournament team last weekend after leading the GCC volleyball team to a second place finish at the Lackawanna College tournament.

She totaled 108 assists, 19 digs and nine aces in seven matches for Genesee, which finished the tournament 3-2-2.

Genesee will host Erie Community College and travel to play in the Columbia-Greene Community College POD event this week.
