Mackenzie O'Brien became the latest recruit and signee of Genesee Community College's women's soccer team from Akron High School.
The Lady Tigers defender comes with quite a pedigree of awards and accomplishments during her high school athletics career.
From a team perspective, O'Brien helped her squad to Section VI championship and along the way received honors that include: All-Western New York and Niagara-Orleans All-League, with multiple recognitions in both.
O'Brien plans to study criminal justice and pursue a career in forensics at GCC and is the third major recruitment of Cougar head women's soccer coach Jeff Reyngoudt for the 2018 fall season.
Reyngoudt looks to improve upon last season with returning National Junior College Athletic Association All-American Miko Yamashita. The 2017 GCC women's soccer team went unbeaten in its first 10 games against D-III opponents and climbed to a national ranking of No. 1 along the way.
