Geneva College Athletes of the week for the week of January 23-28, 2012:
Samantha Fisher - Basketball
Samantha Fisher has been selected as the female student-athlete of the week.

Second on the team in rebounding, she is also now averaging near eight points per game.
Matt Lorello - Basketball

He scored ten points on 5-5 shooting in a loss to Bethany before posting a team best 19 points and nine rebounds in Geneva′s victory over Waynesburg on Saturday afternoon.
