Hnidy helped anchor the Genesee defense which allowed the fourth-lowest goals against average in the country at 8.38. He appeared in all 16 games, making 14 starts and was second on the team in ground balls with 62. Hnidy also tallied three points with two goals and one assist and was named to the All-WNYAC first team and the All-Region III first team this season as well.
