The weekend snow storm played a significant role in disrupting the college athletic schedules. Geneva’s indoor track and field team was unable to get to the meet at Mt. Union College while both basketball teams were stranded at home forcing the postponement of a doubleheader at Saint Vincent College. While the indoor meet will not be made up, the two basketball teams will travel to Saint Vincent tonight to make-up the games lost on Saturday.
The women’s team dropped its only game of the week to nationally ranked Thomas More with senior Renee Rawding scoring a team best 19 points in the loss. Geneva fell to 7-13 on the season and will now head to the road twice this week in search of its first road win of the season. The Saturday cancellation has forced the women’s team to play three games this week, which will be just the second time this season that has happened.
Geneva’s men dropped a 92-89 decision to Thomas More last week after rallying for a 15-point second half comeback. Bryan Hill’s three-point field goal tied the game with 25 seconds left only to see the Saints win the game on a three-pointer with just five seconds left in the game. Hill finished with 17 points including five three-point field goals for the game. Rich Colick led the Golden Tornadoes with 21 points in the loss. Geneva’s men have dropped three straight and have fallen to 11-10. They must win at least two of their final four games to be eligible for the NCCAA post-season. They will also be traveling to Saint Vincent tonight to make-up Saturday’s game.
