Coach of the Year honors for GCC soccer coach from Holley
BATAVIA – In his first season as the head coach of the Genesee Community College women’s soccer program, Jeff Reyngoudt has been named the 2013 Western New York Athletic Conference Coach of the Year.
Reyngoudt took over the program last offseason after a 5-12-1 record in 2012 and led Genesee to a 13-4-1 season this year, the first winning record and the highest win total since 2010. The Lady Cougars were 6-1 in conference play this season.
“He’s done a fantastic job,” said GCC Athletic Director Kristen Schuth. “It starts with recruiting and he’s done a great job working with the players he has brought in. He’s made huge strides with the program.”
GCC was ranked as high as fifth in the NJCAA National Poll this year and earned three victories over Top-10 teams. The Lady Cougars earned the number one seed in the Region III Tournament and reached the Finals where they lost in overtime to SUNY Delhi.
Genesee had seven players receive All-Conference honors and four All-Region selections this year.
