The Oswego Athletics Department named its 2015 Outstanding Male and Female Senior Athletes at its annual All-Athlete Banquet in May. Georgia Traynor ’15 of the women’s soccer team and Bobby Gertsakis ’15 of the men’s ice hockey team took home this year’s honors.
Traynor played in 63 of a possible 68 games during her career, starting in all 63 of those contests. She earned region and conference recognition in each of her last two years, both at different positions. As a junior, the ECAC named her a Second Team All-Upstate performer as a defender following her First Team All-SUNYAC recognition. This season, Traynor again earned ECAC Second Team All-Upstate and First Team All-SUNYAC, this time as a midfielder. Despite playing defense for the majority of her career, the senior scored twice and added nine assists for a 13-point career. The Tomkins Cove, N.Y., native and captain was part of the 2013 squad that made the program’s first SUNYAC Championship appearance since 2002.
As a senior, Gertsakis was named First Team All-American by the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) and First Team All-SUNYAC. During his junior campaign, Gertsakis earned Second Team All-Conference accolades. He was named to the NCAA and SUNYAC All-Tournament Teams as a sophomore. The NCAA All-Tournament selection came on the heels of scoring two of Oswego’s three goals during a 5-3 loss in the 2013 NCAA Championship title game. The Pickering, Ontario, native finished with 12 goals and 57 assists for a 69-point career.
