Edgewood, KY – Geno DeMarco took over Geneva’s program at the start of the 1993 season. In his first game as head coach, DeMarco guided the Golden Tornadoes to a 10-9 victory over William Patterson to start the beginning of a new era. Fifteen years later, DeMarco picked up career victory #100 when Geneva defeated Thomas More on Saturday by the identical 10-9 score. DeMarco, Geneva’s winningest coach in its 118-year history, watched his club move to 5-2 with yet another impressive defensive effort.
Geneva’s defense entered the weekend as the top ranked unit in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. On Saturday, it once again showed people why as the defense held Thomas More to just 127 total yards. The Saints managed just 21 yards of total offense, while Geneva got its running game clicking again thanks to the legs of Bobby Bondi. Bondi rushed for a team best 77 yards, but managed just 82 yards on 10-28 passing. Bondi did hook-up for one touchdown, which proved to be all Geneva’s defense would need.
Washington Monthly ranks Geneva among the nation’s top ten “Best-Bang-for-the-Buck” baccalaureate colleges for providing students the highest chance of graduating with an affordable degree that has marketplace value.
