For the second time this season, St. Joseph’s College student-athletes Lauren GaNun and Shannon Fahy were recognized as women’s volleyball and women’s soccer Players of the Week, while Taso Kostikas was honored as men’s cross country Rookie of the Week for the first time in his career by the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC).

Breezy Point native GaNun received United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) and HVIAC Player of the Week honors by helping the St. Joseph’s women’s volleyball team (9-5, 4-0 HVIAC) remain undefeated in league play and move to first place with two key straight-set conference victories.

Against New Rochelle, the sophomore middle hitter led the Lady Bears with 13 kills and seven digs in the straight-set victory over the then-unbeaten Blue Angels. The Fontbonne Hall product followed up that performance with a 12-kill, seven-dig, five-ace effort against Medgar Evers.

GaNun, who earns her second Player of the Week nod, currently leads the HVIAC with 3.90 kills per set and a .318 hitting percentage.

Another sophomore Breezy Point native, Fahy was honored by the Association of Division III Independents (AD3I) and HVIAC after recording her second hat trick of the season and leading the women’s soccer team (2-8, 2-3 HVIAC) to an 8-0 win over the Maccabees in their lone game of the week.

The midfielder from Bishop Kearney High School also added an assist and now ranks in the top five in the conference with her team-leading seven goals and 20 points.

Kostikas, a sophomore harrier from Brooklyn, helped the men’s cross country team secure an 8th place team finish at the College of Staten Island Invitational, covering the 5-kilometer course in a career-best time of 22:15. The Midwood High School graduate was the third Bear to cross the finish line and took 58th for the best finish of his career.

The women’s volleyball and women’s soccer teams look to close out the regular season on a high note with the HVIAC Tournament for both sports beginning on Sunday, October 27.
