Athlete of the Week: Gena Grundhoffer


Gena Grundhoffer has been on Assumption Catholic girls basketball team for all three tournament runs.

"I couldn't ask for a better way to start ending the season. We've worked so hard for this every single one of us," Grundhoffer said.

She leads the team in points and on Saturday she contributed a game high 25 points in the sectional final.

"Gena is a great player, I mean that's pretty obvious. I mean, just ask anyone or just watch us play. She works hard, she definitely knows what she's doing on the basketball court," Assumption forward Olivia Skibba said.

While her immediate family is a big part of her support system her team is a close second.

"They've always been there for me and like i've kind of taken my coaching staff in as another family. So they've always been here no matter what," Runoff said.

Even though she is just a junior she is already looking ahead. She has offers to play at Lehigh University, Milwaukee, and Northern Illinois.
