Forte Earns NJCAA’s Men’s Lacrosse National Player of the Week
The National Junior College Athletic Association named Genesee Community College’s Andrew Forte NJCAA Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week March 28 for contests between March 19-25.
In a pair of men’s lacrosse games last week, Genesee’s Forte helped the Cougars remain the fourth-best men’s lacrosse team in the NJCAA. He was responsible for 42 separate possessions for his team by accruing a 70 percent winning percentage from the faceoff circle with 28 wins while scooping up an additional 14 groundballs to give his team possession for the majority of the time he was on the field.
The freshman midfielder also added six shots with three on net for one goal as the team went 1-1 last week beginning with a 22-4 win over visiting Hudson valley Community College March 21 and a 14-10 followed by a road loss to current No. 1 and defending national champion Onondaga Community College March 24.
