Gary SIAC Player of the Week

WILBERFORCE – Central State linebacker Deonate Gary has been named the SIAC Defensive Player of the Week following an impressive performance against Stillman College last Saturday in the Marauders’ 24-7 road win.

Gary, a 6-foot-1 junior from Lakeland, Fla., recorded two interceptions, five solo tackles and a forced fumble. Gary’s first pick came on Stillman’s first drive of the game when he stepped in front of a pass and returned it 30 yards for the game’s first score. Gary struck again on the first SC drive of the second half, intercepting another pass and taking it 51 yards to set up a CSU touchdown three plays later.

In addition to earning the honor from the SIAC, Gary was also tabbed as HeroSports.com Division II Defensive Stud of the Week for the second consecutive time.

Gary, who transferred from Eastern Arizona in 2013, reflected on what the awards meant to him.

“After sitting out for two full seasons, it has felt great to be able to play alongside my teammates,” Gary said. “These awards are a reflection of all the hard work our team continues to put in each and every week. I am just one of many talented players at Central State. For me, it means a lot to help deliver recognition for our team and the entire university.”

Gary’s 45 solo tackles and 31 assists leads the team and ranks among the top three in the SIAC. He also has a team-best 18 tackles for losses heading into next week’s game at Tuskegee (Ala.) University.

Central State (4-4, 2-2 SIAC West) takes on reigning SIAC champion Tuskegee (7-1, 3-0). Fans can watch the game live from Abbott Memorial Alumni Stadium beginning at 2 p.m. on the Tuskegee Sports Network. (tuskegeesportsnetwork.blogspot.com)


Sedlock HL Offensive Player of the Week

Senior forward Natalie Sedlock has been named the Horizon League Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday by the league office.

Sedlock (Beavercreek) led the Raiders to a pair of wins last week, scoring three goals in the process. In a 2-0 decision over Cleveland State in the final home match of the regular season last Wednesday, Sedlock tallied the game-winning goal at the 48:23 mark of the second half.

WSU then defeated Green Bay 4-1 on the road Saturday as Sedlock recorded two goals. She scored the first goal of the match just 7:44 into the contest and then added the final goal of the night at the 82:17 mark.

Sedlock leads the team and is tied for fourth in the league with six goals this season.

Wright State (7-7-1, 4-3-1 Horizon) closes out the regular season at 3 p.m. Friday at Detroit.
