Halsted and Passarell Earn Athlete of the Week Honors

Genesee Community College men's soccer goalkeeper Connor Halsted and women's soccer defender Claudia Passarell have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 13.

Halsted went 3-0 in net last week for the GCC men's soccer team.

He did not allow a goal in the three contests, shutting out SUNY Adirondack, Jamestown CC and Onondaga CC. Connor tallied a total of 20 saves, including one on a penalty kick (and the ensuing rebound) against JCC, a game that decided the Western New York Athletic Conference title.

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

Passarell played well in three games last week for the GCC women's soccer team, helping the Cougars to a couple of wins.

She helped shut out Jamestown CC and Onondaga CC and held No. 11 (Division I) Monroe CC to four goals.

The GCC defense has totaled nine-shutout wins so far this season.

The Cougars will host Finger Lakes CC and Herkimer County CC this week.
