Cougars earn #1 Seed

The Genesee Community College baseball team locked up the number one seed in next weekend's Region III tournament by splitting a double header with Monroe Community College on Sunday afternoon.

Genesee needed to win only one of the two games on the afternoon and earned the clinching victory in game one, 11-0.

Dylan Grosul (Ontario, Canada) pitched well for the Cougars, throwing a complete game shutout. He did not allow a hit until the fifth inning.

Jean Rodriguez (Caguas, Puerto Rico) scored three runs for GCC and also added a double. Tyler Koronas (Naples, FL) drove in a run and also scored a run.


In game two, Monroe took advantage of a seven-run third inning to overcome a 3-0 deficit and take a lead they would not let up. The Tribunes sent ten batters to the plate in the third inning and went on to win the second game 8-3.

Jose Alicea (St. Croix, V.I.) was 1-3 with a run scored, Brandon Collins (Toronto, Ontario) was 2-3, Bryan Depew (Wellsville, NY) was 1-3 with a run scored and Yuya Osawa (Tokyo, Japan) was 2-3 with a run scored.

Genesee finishes the regular season with the best record in the Western New York Athletic Conference. They will host the Region III tournament, which begins on May 4th, and play at 4pm on Friday. Mercyhurst North East will be the second seed and Monroe Community College will be the third seed in the double-elimination tournament.
