BATAVIA, NY… The Genesee Community College women’s soccer team signed another recruit for the incoming 2020-2021 season as Jasmine Mercado signed her Letter of Intent. Head Coach, Jeff Reyngoudt, traveled to Keshequa Central School to sign forward, Jasmine Mercado. Jasmine is a 5’2” go-getter and a three-year varsity athlete for Keshequa girls’ soccer team. Jasmine is the fifth recruit to sign with Genesee this off-season.
She was awarded Livingston County All-Star and appeared in the Exceptional Senior Game this past fall. She was also captain of her team during her senior season. Jasmine has 20 career goals, 7 career assists, and also runs track at her high school.
Jeff had watched Mercado play when her high school team competed against Albion High School at Genesee’s soccer facilities. Not only was he impressed by her style of play, but some of Genesee’s current women’s soccer players were present at the game and were also excited about her abilities. “She’s incredibly feisty, quick, and always fights to get the ball back. That is the style of play that we plan on recruiting for the 2020 season”, said Head Coach, Jeff Reyngoudt.
Jeff and assistant coach, Macy Reyngoudt, are still in the process of recruiting for their 2020 team and have some more signings coming up. They are excited about next year’s incoming class and also expect a lot from their returning freshmen class.
