The Genesee Community College's athletes of the week for the period ending Oct. 8 are Nao Maeda (Yokahoma, Japan) from the women's volleyball team and Charlie Livesey (Sandbach, United Kingdom) from the men's soccer team.
Nao was the lone Cougar named to be named to the all-tournament team of the Cara Bryant Tournament this past weekend that was hosted by Onondaga Community College, Oct. 6-7. She averaged nearly 18 assists per match with 89 over 11 sets that included 23 and 22 in the final two matches against Broome and Jefferson, respectively. She also added 29 digs, 14 points, four kills, two block assists and one block during the tournament and had a pair of aces in four of the five matches for a total of eight.
Charlie was the lone Cougar to record points in all three Genesee contests last week that improved the team's unbeaten streak to 10 games by netting three goals and four assists for the No. 3 Cougars. His 10-point week started with a pair of goals and a pair of assists against Jamestown Community College Oct.4. Then the sophomore forward sent a corner kick toward the net against No. 4 Herkimer with just 20 seconds left in regulation that resulted in a game-tying score and a big assist to keep the Cougars' unbeaten streak intact with the road tie Oct. 7. Charlie completed the week with a goal and an assist against Fulton-Montgomery Oct. 8 to move No. 3 Genesee to 10-2-1 on the year.
