The Genesee Community College women's soccer team inked Payton Willette to its 2018 roster as the Eastridge High School senior becomes the fourth recent addition by head coach Jeff Reyngoudt.
All four have defensive skills that will make it difficult for any other region team to beat the Cougars next season, especially at home on one of the finest new turf fields adjacent to the Richard C. Call Arena.
Willette caught the eye of many recruiters after an outstanding Senior Game. She helped lead her team to a division title and along the way was acknowledged as an all-county selection for Monroe.
Willette plans to study physical education at GCC in pursuing a career as a physical education teacher as well as a soccer coach.
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.
