Geneva College Athletes of the week for the week of March 31 - April 5:
Susan Fletcher - Track & Field
Susan Fletcher has been selected as this week's Female Athlete of the Week. Fletcher captured the first place prize in the 3000 meter steeplechase event at the Washington & Jefferson College Invitational. Fletcher led a very competitive field with a winning time of 12:04.41. Fletcher's first place finish comes just one week after finishing second in the 3000 meter steeplechase at the Western Pennsylvania Championships at Carnegie Mellon University. Fletcher, a national qualifier a year ago, will represent Geneva again this spring at the NCCAA nationals in May.
Jon Jurinko - Baseball
Jon Jurinko has been selected as this week's Male Athlete of the week. Despite a pair of losses to Washington & Jefferson in the only baseball action of the week, Jurinko did his best to lead the Golden Tornadoes offense. The freshman shortstop collected three hits in game two, including a triple and a pair of doubles. He also scored one of Geneva's two runs in its 4-2 11-inning loss in game one. For the season, Jurinko is tied for the team lead with seven extra base hits and a pair of home runs. Geneva's baseball team is off to a solid start with an overall record of 11-6.
