Gaston and Bondarenko Named SAAC Male and Female Athletes of the Month
Oglethorpe men's soccer sophomore Carlos Gaston and volleyball sophomore McKenna Bondarenko have been named the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Male and Female Athlete of the Month.
Carlos Gaston has helped lead the men’s soccer team to an 8-2 record. He is first in the league in goals with nine and in points with 20. He scored a hat trick in the Sept. 26 game at Covenant and added two more goals against Rhodes on Sunday. He was also voted the SAA Offensive Player of the Week for the week of September 22-28.
McKenna Bondarenko is the definition of a clutch player. She had 11 kills in the season-opening win against Piedmont, 17 kills and six blocks against Centre, 10 out of 20 kills in the win over Brewton Parker, and led the Petrels with 13 kills against Rhodes. She also recorded 12 kills in last week's victory over Covenant. Bondarenko always is clutch when it comes down to a crucial point in a set.
