Helen Busch becomes first female golfer in GCC history to sign with a four-year college
Genesee Community College golfer Helen Busch (of Buffalo) recently signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Bryan College, becoming the first female golfer in the College's history to sign with a four-year college.
Busch, a qualifier for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Tournament in 2015, earned medalist honors in three events last season for GCC. She fired a season-low 83 at the Tompkins-Cortland CC Invite on Apr. 26 and shot an average round of 93 for the year.

Busch will receive athletic and academic scholarship and will study Biology.

Participation in collegiate athletics should be an extension of the total educational experience for the student athlete. The inherent philosophy emphasizes the athletic setting as a classroom used to teach character, commitment, work ethic, respect for differences, and the importance of sacrifice, teamwork, and cooperation.
