COLLEGE NOTEBOOK: Simzer’s four-goal game earns high honors

Posted

A school record-tying effort by SUNY Oswego field hockey star Kacie Simzer (Clinton) was rewarded on Monday when the Laker senior was named the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Offensive Athlete of the Week.

Simzer’s four goals and eight points tied two Oswego single-game records and led the Lakers to a 5-1 non-conference victory over Keystone College. Simzer, who earlier this season had two goals and two assists in a win over Medaille and two goals in a win over Keuka, entered this week as the SUNYAC leader in goals (9), points (20), and shots on goal (28).

Oswego classmate Kaitlyn Mastracco (Rome/RFA) is also among the top scorers in the conference with seven goals and one assist.

SUNY Brockport sophomore goalkeeper Ella Buchanan (Barneveld/Holland Patent), meanwhile, was named the SUNYAC’s Defensive Athlete of the Week. Buchanan made three saves and teammate Alyssa Fuccillo (New York Mills) scored a goal in the Golden Eagles’ 6-2 win over Utica University. Mackenzie Mix (Camden) scored for the Pioneers.

Elsewhere, Keuka College freshman Tori Nelson (Vernon Center/VVS) scored her first two collegiate goals in a 4-3 field hockey loss to Lycoming and then had two goals and an assist in an 8-1 win over Russell Sage. Freshman Eliza Tuttle (Whitesboro) assisted on one of those eight goals.

SUNY Cortland’s Hanna Corrigan (Barneveld/Holland Patent) scored her second goal of the year and the 19th-ranked Red Dragons edged Ithaca 2-1 in overtime.

Sophomore Gianna Trunfio (Clinton) scored her second goal of the season and Vassar College’s 20th-ranked field hockey team beat Ramapo 3-1.

SUNY New Paltz forward Natasia Plunkett (Holland Patent) scored again in a 3-1 field hockey win over Skidmore and later scored her fifth goal of the season in a 4-3 overtime loss to Rochester.

Houghton University’s Jace Hunzinger (Rome/RFA) had a goal and an assist in an 8-0 win over Wells and she then assisted on both goals in a 2-1 field hockey win over Utica. Freshman Makayla Arnold (Marcy/Whitesboro) scored her first collegiate goal for the Pioneers.

SUNY Cortland tennis player Cubino honored

Junior Karlie Cubino (Marcy/Whitesboro) on Monday was named SUNY Cortland’s Female Athlete of the Week after winning both of her singles matches last week. Cubino was a 6-1, 6-3 winner at fifth singles in Cortland’s 7-2 win over SUNY Plattsburgh. The Red Dragons lost to SUNY New Paltz 8-1, but Cubino won her singles match 6-1, 6-3. She also went 1-1 at No. 2 doubles.
