Beaver Falls, PA – Every week the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) selects one student from the ten PAC schools (Bethany, Chatham, Geneva, Grove City, St. Vincent, Thiel, Thomas More, Washington & Jefferson, Waynesburg, and Westminster) as the PAC player of the week. This week three Geneva student-athletes were selected within two sports: football and tennis.
John Onufer was selected as the defensive football player of the week. Onufer posted 14 tackles (10 solo, 4 assist) against the Thiel Tomcats, a career high for Onufer.
Zachary Taylor was selected as the special team football player of the week. Taylor returned Thiel's punt 69 yards, good for Geneva's seventh touchdown of the night. Taylor’s touchdown punt return is a rare gem not seen since 2009 against Bethany.
Last but not least, Brittany Kress was selected as the tennis player of the week among PAC rivals. Geneva finished the week with a pair of wins and a loss. Kress won every one (3-0 at number five singles, 3-0 at third doubles) of her matches against Grove City, W&J and Thomas More, a huge consistency piece needed to the 5-4 wins over W&J and Thomas More.
