Thomas and Barrera earn Generals March Green & Gold Athlete of the Month
Herkimer, NY-- Herkimer College has announced its Green & Gold Athletes of the Month of March. They are men’s lacrosse defender #4 Channing Thomas (Norwalk, CT), and women’s swimmer Daniela Barrera (Cali, Columbia).
"Thomas a work horse in the backfield. He has been a crucial part of our defense since day one,” said Head Coach Jamie Ireland. “He has really stepped up in his leadership ship role picking up 19 groundballs and two assists while contributing in eight forced turnovers in our first three games.”
Barrera performed her best at the NJCAA national championship meet earning nine personal best times out of 10 races. She set the program's 50 yard breaststroke three times and led with most points earned for the women at the championship meet.
“I could not be more proud and in awe of Daniela – she is so competitive," said Head Coach Vicki Brown. "She has the internal drive to continuously improve and reach her goals."
