Genesee CC Announces 2013 Lacrosse Captains and Schedule

The Genesee Community College coaching staff recently announced their captains and schedule for the 2013 season. Awarded the honor of leading their team are sophomores Jonathan Gill (Gowanda), Jordan McElligott (Spencerport), Tom Owen (Clarence), and Christian Reiller (Salamanca).

Gill started all 19 games last year at attack and was selected as Region III 2nd Team. He had 53 goals, 19 assists for 72 points with a terrific 56% shooting percentage in his freshman campaign.

McElligott, a defenseman, played in all 19 games last season, and was selected as Region III 1st Team. Jordan was fourth on the team with 18 takeaways and added 44 ground balls last season. This year he will be looked upon to lead the young defensive unit and match-up with the opposing team's best attackman.

Owen is a returning captain, who again will be an important two way midfielder. He brings a tremendous amount of leadership and experience to the team. Tom had 5 goals and 5 assists for 10 points last year.

Reiller, an attackman, returns to Genesee C.C. after taking a year off. He was selected to Region III 1st Team in 2011 when he had 33 goals and 14 assists at midfield. Christian will be looked to fill the shoes of our all time leading scorers Connor Latimer and Gaehnew Printup who graduated last year.

Genesee is a member of the Western NY Athletic Conference and Region III NJCAA. This year's schedule is highlighted with home games against Onondaga, CCBC-Essex, and Suffolk. Genesee will also travel to Albany and Long Island on spring break to play Hudson Valley and Nassau. Other important games on the schedule include Monroe, Broome, Herkimer, Mercyhurst NE, and SUNY Delhi at Cortland State. Genesee will play all their home games on their new state of the art lighted turf field.
