Stratton and Henshaw Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College softball outfielder Amanda Stratton and baseball infielder Brandon Henshaw have been named the Female and Male Athlete of the Week for the week of May 8. 

Stratton recorded a multi-hit game in both games of GCC's doubleheader sweep of Monroe CC last week, the Cougars' only series of the week.

She went a combined 4 for 7 and drove in three runs for Genesee, which defeated MCC 9-1 and 12-8.

Genesee is the No. 4 seed in the Region III Softball Championships and will host No. 5 Erie CC on Tuesday in the sub-regional round. The winner will advance to the regional final four, hosted by Genesee on May 12-13.

Henshaw helped the GCC baseball team to a doubleheader sweep in its only series last week.

He batted .714 (5/7) and hit two home runs, one double, drove in seven runs and scored six. GCC swept Finger Lakes CC in two games and improved to 21-5 in Region III play.

Genesee will host Niagara County CC and Finger Lakes CC this week.
