O-State soccer players recognized by SUNYAC

STAFF REPORT

Oneonta State soccer players Zachary Southworth and Karly DeSimone received Offensive Player of the Week honors from the SUNY Athletic Conference on Wednesday.

Freshman Southworth scored his first two college goals in back-to-back wins at Buffalo State and Fredonia last weekend. The victories clinched the SUNYAC regular-season title for the Red Dragons (11-3-4), who went 7-0-2 in conference play to earn the top seed and home-field advantage for the tournament semifinals and final.

DeSimone, a senior, had an assist in a 2-0 defeat of Buffalo State and finished with two goals and two assists in a 5-2 thumping of Fredonia last week. O-State’s women (9-4-3) also clinched the regular-season SUNYAC crown, going 6-0-3 in conference play, for the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the tournament.

Fourth-year starter DeSimone, a captain, leads the Red Dragons this season with 22 points on eight goals and six assists.

HONORS

Hartwick College

Hartwick women’s soccer forward Cristina Sicari earned Eastern College Athletic Conference Upstate Offensive Player of the Week accolades Monday.

Sicari scored two winning goals for the Hawks last week. She scored in a 1-0 defeat of RPI and had another goal in a 2-1 defeat of St. John Fisher.

On Tuesday, Hartwick selected women’s soccer goalie Annie Millar and cross country runner Victoria Hathaway as its Hawks of the week.

Millar had seven saves against RPI and a college-best nine stops against St. John Fisher.

Hathaway won the women’s title at the Hartwick Fast Track event last Friday, completing the 3-kilometer race in 10 minutes, 45.10 seconds.

Oneonta State

Oneonta State senior Jermaine Miller received SUNYAC Diver of the Week honors Wednesday.

Miller won the 1- and 3-meter dives this past weekend at Oswego, scoring 18 team points for the Red Dragons in a season-opening 130-113 victory.

Miller finished with 270.10 points in the 3-meter event and a score of 295.05 in the 1-meter, the latter counting as an NCAA Division III qualifying mark.
