Votava and Giglio Named Athletes of the Week

Indoor track athlete Megan Votava (Alfred Almond) and swimmer Jake Giglio (Hornell) have been named the Alfred State athletes of the week by the SID office.

Votava had a solid showing at the Region III Championships on Friday.  She won the pole vault with a 2.60 m leap which established her with the 2nd best all-time mark in the record books.  She also set a new school record in the 60 m hurdles (10.04) while finishing 3rd.

Giglio was 3rd in the 100 fly (56.97), 5th in the 100 free (53.24), and 6th in the 50 free (23.48) during the three-day Northeast District/Region III Championships.  He was part of the 800 free and 400 free relays that finished 3rd and the 400 medley and 200 free relays that took 4th.  Giglio helped his team to a 4th place finish out of 11 teams.

Votava's focus turns towards the outdoor season while Giglio has just over a week before heading to Fort Pierce, FL for the 2012 NJCAA National Championships.
