Thirteen Finger Lakes Community College student-athletes received Region III Academic All-Region awards. Among the students are Canandaigua graduates Kelly Broderick and Parker Weeks, Red Jacket grad Jason Woodard, and Marcus Whitman grad Brandon Smith.
“We’ve never had 13 Academic All-Region members in an individual academic year,” FLCC director of athletics Bob Lowden said in a statement. “Almost 10 percent of our student-athletes received recognition for academic achievement. I could not be more proud of our student-athletes’ accomplishments in the classroom.”
Woodard maintained a 3.51 grade-point average. Outside of the classroom, Woodard placed 84th at the National Junior College Athletic Association Nationals cross country race this past fall.
Broderick recorded a 3.86 grade-point average. Athletically, Broderick helped anchor a FLCC women’s soccer defense that ranked fourth in the nation in goals allowed average (0.47 per game). The former Brave also chipped in just over three points per game on the basketball court. She received an award for Superior Academic Achievement from the NJCAA.
Weeks recorded a 3.81 grade-point average. The Canandaigua native helped lead FLCC’s lacrosse team to one of the best seasons in school history. Weeks also received an NJCAA Award for Superior Academic Achievement.
