Genesee Community College head golf coach Tom Moynihan has been chosen as the 2014 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III Region III Coach of the Year.
In his third season at the helm, Moynihan guided the GCC men's and women's golf program to a successful spring season. The Cougars placed no lower than third in any regular season team event this year, including a first place finish at the Jamestown Community College Invitational. Sophomore Adam Baumeister (Lancaster, NY) earned three individual first place finishes and Genesee placed fourth as a team at the Region III Championships earlier this month.
"We are very fortunate to have Tom as part of our coaching staff," said GCC Athletic Director Kristen Schuth. "He is great at recruiting talented athletes that have a passion for the sport. The coach of the year award is very well deserved."
Genesee placed two individuals, Baumeister and Chris Mandia (Highland, NY), on the All-Region team and both will compete at the NJCAA National Tournament June 3-7 at the Chautauqua Country Club.
Moynihan is the third head coach at GCC to receive coach of the year honors in 2013-2014. Women's soccer head coach Jeff Reyngoudt and men's basketball head coach Terry George were also recognized in their respective sports. Moynihan resides in Alexander with his wife Patty and has three children and nine grandchildren.
