Sophomore outside hitter, Marjorie Vazquez of the Jefferson Community College (JCC) volleyball team, and sophomore midfielder, Trenton Sullivan, of the Jefferson men's soccer team, were named JCC co-athletes of the week for the week ending September 15, 2019. JCC's athlete of the week program is sponsored by Under Armour and Victory Promotions.
Maggie, a 2018 graduate of Sandy Creek Central School, is majoring in Humanities and Social Sciences at Jefferson. Vazquez’s accomplishments on the court this past week included continuing to be a steady, dominating force for Jefferson. She helped lead the Lady Cannoneers to 4-0 week by compiling 49 kills, 38 digs, 5 blocks, and 9 aces. Marjorie’s hard work in the off-season is really paying off, she is such a threat on the offensive line, and is a go-to player when the game is on the line.
Trenton, a 2018 graduate of Harrisville Central School, is majoring in Physical Education at Jefferson. Trent’s accomplishments on the pitch this past week included controlling the midfield for the Cannoneers. Sullivan is in his second year of soccer at JCC and is playing some of his best soccer to date. He is captaining a young squad that is currently above .500 and looking to make a push for a winning season. It is not often a non-scoring player gets recognition, but it’s what Trenton does behind the scenes that makes him invaluable to the team. Being on time for practice, encouraging teammates, being a good person and a good student-athlete, and other little things that a coach likes to have in a player is what makes Trenton a team leader and a great teammate. Trent is a pleasure to coach and his work ethic is second to none!
