Willie Cool (Canajoharie) was named a State University of New York at Cobleskill Athlete of the Week after leading the men's swimming and diving team to a second-place finish at the school's fall invitational Nov. 9.

Cool won the 500-yard freestyle in 6:18.27 and finished fourth in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 28.04 seconds.

He also swam a leg of the winning 200-yard medley relay and a leg of the second-place freestyle relay.

She also had three rebounds and an assist.

Brittany Stahura (Amsterdam) also is on the team.
