BATAVIA, NY… The Genesee Community College Women’s Soccer program just signed their fourth recruit of the year on December 2nd, Kelly Mickey. Cougars Head Coach Jeff Reyngoudt traveled to Elba Central School to sign Mickey. Kelly is a 5’2” spit fire forward and a 4-year varsity starter for the Oakfield-Alabama/Elba girls’ soccer team. She is a two-time Genesee Region All-Star and appeared in the Exceptional Senior Game this past fall. Kelly has 35 career goals and 20 career assists. She will be majoring in General Studies and plans to become a Dental Hygienist in the future.
Kelly was recommended to our coaching staff by Genesee Women’s Soccer Player Alumni, Breyanna Crawford, who played here in 2015 and 2016. Brey is now the assistant girls’ soccer coach at Oakfield-Alabama/Elba and had only positive things to say about Mickey. She had compared Kelly to another GCC Alumnus, Shawna Adams. Adams played at Genesee from 2014-2015 and was on the team that appeared in the NJCAA Division III Women’s Soccer National Championships. Shawna was the leading scorer in her two years and is the team record holder for career goals (47).
Macy Reyngoudt, assistant women’s soccer coach, had watched Kelly play in their first round of sectionals and was blown away by her tenacity and strength to carry her team. “This kid has a lot of heart and that’s exactly what we’re looking for right now”, stated Macy.
Jeff and Macy will be signing more players in the coming months. They are excited about next year’s incoming class and also expect a lot from their returning freshmen class. If you are interested in trying out for next year’s 2020 Genesee Cougars, please email Jeff Reyngoudt at firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2019 Genesee women’s soccer program finished the season with a record of 10-7 and made it to the NJCAA Region III final four.
