Senior Allyson Clarke was the highest decorated athlete with a first team NCCAA All-Region award, as well as being named the player of the year in the East Region. Even more impressive was the honor of being named a first-team NCCAA All-American. Clarke led Geneva’s women to a 20-6 record, which marked the first time in school history the women’s program won 20 games in back to back years. She finished the season with a team best 18.4 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. For her career, she finished second on the all-time rebounding list and third in scoring.
Renee Rawding received second team All-Region consideration in the NCCAA, while Clarke, Rawding and Michawn Rich were all recognized with Coaches Honors from the Presidents’ Athletic Conference.
On the men’s side, Greg McDivitt was a first team All-Region selection as well as receiving second team All-American consideration.

Justin Nardi was an honorable mention selection for the Golden Tornadoes. In the PAC, both McDivitt and Hill received Coaches Honors.
