Grand Rapids Community College student-athletes Arie Jackman, Annie Holesinger, Elizabeth Meyering and Coleman Clark earned Player of the Week honors from the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.

For Holesinger and Clark, it’s the second time this season they have earned the honor.

Jackman, a freshman from Caledonia, shot 223 for the 54-hole Bill Bockwitz Classic at Spring University. He finished tied for third at the tournament, and GRCC’s golf team finished fourth in a field of 10 teams.

Holesigner, a sophomore middle blocker for the volleyball team, totaled 36 kills in two matches, including a career-high 24 at Muskegon Community College on Sept. 20.  She followed that performance up with 12 kills against Kalamazoo Valley that helped her team to a 3-0 sweep and take sole possession of first place in the conference.

Holesinger earned MCCAA Western Conference Player of the Week honors in August, followed by teammate Ola Nowak.

Meyering, a freshman, helped the women’s cross country team to a second-place finish at the Firebird Invitational last weekend. She finished the five-kilometer course in 22:12, good for 17th place.

Clark, a freshman on the men’s cross country team, won his first ever collegiate race with an 8K time of 26:30 at the Firebird Invitational.  The former Michigan state high school champion took over the lead at the 4-mile mark and edged out Lansing Community College’s Zach Wright by three seconds.  

The honor is the second earned by Clark, who was named MCCAA Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Week on Sept. 7. GRCC’s Kaylee Scott earned Women’s Cross Country Runner of the Week honors that week.
