Marconi Becomes Double Signee for Soccer and Lacrosse
Riley Marconi became the latest Cougar to join the Genesee Community College athletic program as a double signee Feb. 26 for the women’s soccer and lacrosse teams for Cougar coach Jeff Reyngoudt, who coaches both.
Marconi plays for the Gates Chili Spartans in Section V of the New York Public High School Athletic Association for one of the largest high schools in Western New York that compete at the Class-AA level.
The senior Spartan joins both teams with the best attributes a recruit can possess that include academics, leadership and talent as she has been tabbed as an honor student, captain and most valuable with her high school team.
Marconi plans to attend GCC after high school graduation and compete for the Cougars in the fall of 2018 with the women’s soccer team at the midfielder position, and then with the women’s lacrosse team in the spring of 2019 at either the midi or attack positions.
Cougar Athletes of the Week Announced
The Genesee Community College’s athletes of the week for the period ending Feb. 24 are Kierra Perl (Attica, NY) from the women’s basketball team and Brian Fobbs (Rochester, NY) from the men’s basketball team.

Perl just missed recording back-to-back double-doubles by a single rebound last week against No. 1-ranked Monroe Community College and Jamestown Community College, but still averaged double-double statistics in scoring 27 points to go with 20 rebounds in the pair of games. Although she led the Cougars in scoring in both games last week, her better of the two was in Jamestown with a 17-point performance that accounted for 40 percent of the Cougars’ offense.

Fobbs averaged 26 points, 10.5 rebounds, two assists and three steals in a pair of games last week while shooting 56 percent from the field as the Cougars locked up third place in the WNYAC. On the weekend game at Jamestown, Fobbs recorded a double-double 30-point performance and 13 rebounds to go with three assists and four steals. With his 30-point performance, Brian moved into sole possession of fourth-place all-time in Genesee career scoring with 1243 points.
