Ruzewski and Ray Earn Athlete of the Week Honors

Genesee Community College softball infielder Chelsey Ruzewski and men's lacrosse attack/midfielder Dana Ray have been named the Female and Male Athletes of the Week for the week of Apr. 21.

Ruzewski extended a hitting streak to nine games last week before snapping it in the second game of a doubleheader against Jefferson Community College.

She went 1-4 with a stolen base in game one before her hitting streak came to an end in game two. She followed with a two-hit series against Mercyhurst North East, tallying two of GCC's four total hits in the doubleheader against the Saints.

Genesee will travel to Niagara County Community College, Monroe Community College, SUNY Adirondack and Cayuga Community College this week.

Ray tallied 17 total points in two games last week for the GCC men's lacrosse team.

He tied the school record for third-most goals in a game against Broome Community College with eight goals. He also added two assists. He followed with four goals and three assits in the regular season finale against Finger Lakes Community College, totaling 12 goals and five assists for the week.

The Cougars will host Dean College on Wednesday in the opening round of the Region III tournament.
