Hockey’s Gertsakis Wins Oswego’s Outstanding Male Athlete Award


OSWEGO, N.Y. – The Oswego State athletics department named its 2015 Outstanding Male and Female Senior Athletes at Thursday’s annual All-Athlete Banquet. Georgia Traynor of the women’s soccer team andBobby Gertsakis 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 was part of the 2013 squad that made the program’s first SUNYAC Championship appearance since 2002. Named a captain as a senior, Traynor scored the game-winning goal with 53 seconds remaining in double-overtime game at Potsdam this year, scoring on a corner kick for the 3-2 victory.

Gertsakis appeared in 92 games in his career at Oswego. As a senior, he was named First Team All-America 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 the Oswego’s three goals during a 5-3 loss in the 2013 NCAA Championship title game. Gertsakis was part of squads that made the SUNYAC and NCAA tournaments all four of his years, including two SUNYAC Championship crowns and two trips to the national championship game. Over his career, the Lakers held a 90-21-8 record. The Pickering, Ont. native finished with 12 goals and 57 assists for a 69-point career.

Oswego’s athletics department would like to congratulate Traynor and Gertsakis on earning this recognition and would like to thank all of its student-athletes for their dedication throughout the 2014-15 campaigns.
