Elysee Vilsaint, who ranks fourth in NCAA Division III in goals, has led the Cardinals to the brink of the CUNYAC championship.
This week’s athlete of the week is Elysee Vilsaint. Vilsaint, a junior forward on the York College Men’s soccer team, was a catalyst for his team last week, scoring three goals in two games and helping the Cardinals race out to the front of the CUNYAC conference.
Vilsaint, who last year led York to the CUNYAC championship game against Hunter, was back at it on Saturday, scoring a goal and an assist to lead York to a 2-0 victory. Vilsaint also added two goals in last Friday’s 4-0 rout of Brooklyn.
York, which opened the season 0-5, has rebounded to win three straight, thanks in part to the efforts of Vilsaint.
