Wagner and Gleaton Chosen as Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College swimmer Lyle Wagner and women's basketball forward Breana Gleaton have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 19.

Wagner swept his individual events this past weekend at the Monroe Community College Invitational and helped the GCC men's swimming and diving team to a second place finish.

He finished first in three events, winning the 200yd backstroke by almost eight-seconds (2:09.80), the 100yd butterfly (56.80) and the 200yd IM (2:07.53). He was the only Cougar to earn a first place finish at the competition.

Genesee will return to action on Saturday at the Jamestown Community College Invitational.

Gleaton averaged over 10 points per game last week for the GCC women's basketball team to start Western New York Athletic Conference play.
In three games, she led the Cougars in scoring twice. She tallied 16 points and seven rebounds against Mercyhurst North East and grabbed 10 rebounds to go along with eight points against Niagara County Community College.
Genesee will play on the road at Erie Community College Thursday night.
