Meghan Sleezer (Gloversville) was named a Liberty League co-Rookie of the Week as she posted two shutouts for the Skidmore College women's soccer team.

Her goaltending helped preserve the Thoroughbreds' 2-0 win over Hamilton College, which helped Sleezer earn her third weekly conference award of the season.

Sleezer has appeared in 13 games for Skidmore with 11 starts and she has allowed six goals and made 56 saves with five shutouts.

Kayla May (Johnstown) broke a 0-0 tie with a goal leading the University of Louisville field hockey team to a 3-1 win over Dartmouth Sunday.

The Cardinals are locked in a three-way tie for the Big East lead with the University of Connecticut and Syracuse.

Vinnie Nicosia (Amsterdam) was named Patriot League Rookie of the Week for the Colgate football team in an Oct. 11 27-24 win over Princeton.

Nicosia is a freshman defensive back and made seven tackles, including four solo stops.

Nicosia has appeared in seven games this season and 17 tackles, including 11 solos, and has broken up three passes. He's also recovered a fumble.

Anna Wing (Johnstown) scored her first goal of the season for the Nazareth College field hockey team in a 3-0 win over Hamilton College.

Brian Yurkewecz (Fonda-Fultonville) finished third with a time of 24:40 leading the UAlbany men's cross country team to a fifth-place finish at the 42nd Annual UAlbany Invitational. As a result, he was named the America East conference cross country performer of the week.

Matt Begeal (Wells) had an overtime assist, helping to lift the Hilbert College men's soccer team to a 3-2 win over Wells College Friday.

Begeal has appeared in 13 games for Hilbert with two starts and has managed two assists so far this season.
