Sara Zakes

Zakes had an amazing 74 percent save percentage while allowing an average of just five goals-against per-game in a pair of lacrosse contests last week. First, she kept her team in the game with the lead for most of the contest against a quality team that Genesee will be joining in the upcoming regional Final Four and her performance against the Kats had her with a double-digit edge in saves over her counterpart with 25 saves from 33 shots April 11. In her second outing of the week, Zakes stopped four of six shots against North Country with one of the Saints' goals coming off a free position shot April 14. The win advanced Genesee to the Region-III Final Four and surpassed the team's win total from a season ago. Overall she stopped 29 of 39 shots for the week. Zakes was also named the NJCAA Region-III Female Athlete of the Week as well for her efforts during the past week.
