WiNK Male Athlete of the Week
Cole Gomulinski has been indispensable for the boys basketball team since the break. He played a key role in the winning streak that they had kept since the new year until a tough loss in Dobbs Ferry against a great opponent in Masters. With bigs Eian Cushnie and Jack Zahner ruled out, Cole had to step up and he did in a big way. His force is felt in the paint, snagging rebounds effortlessly two-ways down the court. Cole is a brick wall on defense as well, punching multiple shots off the glass from opponents. Cole breaks out fast for outlet passes, pushing the ball up the court moving the offense and keeping it well-oiled. He had 7 points against Masters and double digit rebounds, tallying a couple of blocks and assists to his stat line. Cole can also hit it from deep, he hit threes against Williams and Masters, he's a great one two punch with the big sharp shooter Matt Amarante. Cole has been a name to circle for opposing teams and should be for GFA, as they take on the Dragons in Westport at 5:45 on Saturday.
