Geneva College Athletes of the week for the week of March 14-19, 2011:
Julia Urbanski - Track and Field
Julia Urbanski has been selected as the female student-athlete of the week. In the first outdoor meet of the season, Urbanski brought home a pair of first place finishes in the 800 meter and 1500 meter events. Falling just short of qualifying for the NCCAA nationals, Urbanski was still very impressive in the season opener. She beat the field by six seconds in the 800 meter race with a finishing time of 2:27.33. In the 1500 meter event, she finished first with a time of 5:06.69.
Seth Montgomery - Track and Field
Seth Montgomery has been selected as the male student-athlete of the week. In his first collegiate meet ever, Montgomery dominated the competition in the javelin at the Muskingum College meet on Saturday. Qualifying for the NCCAA nationals in his first meet, Montgomery finished first in the discus with a distance of 154-08, which was more than five feet farther than his next closest competitor. Montgomery was one of five Geneva athletes to qualify for the NCCAA nationals in the first meet of the season.
