The Geneseo Blue Knights- Winter Season

The Geneseo Blue Knights had a strong finish to their fall seasons, with a number of teams clinching top seeds in their conference. Men’s soccer finished 3rd in the SUNYACs and women’s soccer finished 5th in the conference. Women’s field hockey held a 4th place finish and women’s volleyball topped off their season with 3rd place in the West Division of SUNYACs.  Both men’s and women’s cross country finished 1st at the SUNYAC meet held in New Paltz.  The final fall team, women’s tennis, were SUNYAC champions with their 1st place finish in the West Division.  They are looking forward to their final meet in April at NYU.
Winter sports here at Geneseo are well underway and the seven teams are already holding impressive records.  With many teams more than halfway done with their games and meets, it is a great time to see how they have done and what everyone connected with Geneseo has to look forward to in the near future. The Knights’ seven winter teams include: men’s basketball, women’s basketball, women’s equestrian, men’s hockey, women’s swimming, men’s swimming, and indoor track and field.
            The seven teams have already been very successful and many currently hold top seeds in the SUNYAC division standings.  Men’s basketball, coached by Steve Minton, has a current overall record of 8-10.  They are 6-5 in the conference, which makes them 4th in the conference behind Oswego, Cortland, and Buffalo State.  Women’s basketball, coached by Scott Hemer, currently holds a 12-6 overall record.  They hold the fourth seed in the conference, with a 7-4 record.  Women’s equestrian, headed by Kim Sanford, has already competed in six shows and has two more to go in their season.  They are currently ranked 3rd in arguably the most competitive region of the International Horse Show Association.  Coached by Chris Schultz, men’s hockey has an overall record of 11-10.  Within their conference, they hold a 5-7 record and they have 10 CPts—making them 5th in the conference.  Men’s and Women’s swimming and diving, both led by Paul Dotterweich, have been highly competitive this season with dual meet records of 8-4 and 7-5 respectively.  Men’s and Women’s Track and Field, coached by Dave Prevosti, has started their season out strong and looks forward to the remaining meets of their season.
            The winter season is still far from over and there are a number of games and meets that will be held here on campus.  For a full schedule of upcoming sporting events check online for the winter sports schedule.  Come check out the Geneseo Blue Knights and show your support for our winter sports teams soon!
