Geneva featured four hitters with double figure kill numbers as Snavely quarterbacked the offense beautifully. Geneva moved its overall record to 5-3 with the three victories over the weekend.
Jake McCracken - Men's Soccer
Jake McCracken has been selected the Male Student-Athlete of the week. Returning from a season ending injury a year ago, McCracken made his presence felt on Friday in Geneva's 2-1 victory over NCAA Division II Pitt-Johnstown. Trailing 1-0 late in the second half, Geneva was awarded a penalty kick and McCracken made it count to tie the game in the 79th minute. With just over a minute left in regulation, McCracken took a cross from Josh Mann and found the back of the net for the eventual game winner and his second goal of the season. Geneva was 2-0 last week and have won three straight matches moving its overall record to 3-1.
