The Genesee Community College Athletics department announced its players of the week for the week ending Sept. 23, with Leah Czechowski from the women's soccer team taking the top female honor and Rodrigo Albuquerque from the men's soccer team taking the top male honor.
Czechowski scored 10 points in two combined contests last week with one goal and one assist against the junior varsity St. John Fisher team, and then scored three goals with one assist against Jefferson.
Albuquerque had three goals and one assist in the men's soccer team's only contest of the week against Jefferson. The performance was impressive enough that the National Junior College Athletic Association named Albuquerque its Men's Soccer D-III Player of the Week. The seven-point performance left the freshman striker in the nation's top-five in goals and points after weekend action concluded.
