Livingston's Victoria Fogg and Stephen Russo Named Livingston Athlete of the Week

Tory Fogg and Stephen Russo Sign Letters of Intent to College Credits: Danielle Santola

LIVINGSTON, NJ — Two outstanding Livingston athletes, volleyball’s Victoria Fogg and lacrosse’s Stephen Russo, share the title of Mike Rieber’s Athlete of the Week for recently signing their national letters of intent to continue their athletic careers collegiately at The College of St. Rose in Albany and Cleveland State, respectively.

Athletic Director David Cohen said Signing Day in itself was “a nice end to a great career” for both athletes. He said it gave both Fogg and Russo an opportunity to share what they’ve achieved with their teammates while building a sense of spirit amongst the Lancer community.

Victoria Fogg, who had been a power on the Lancers girls volleyball team since freshman year, changed to a middle position this season, where she will play at St. Rose. Partelow said Fogg is going to have a great career and that St. Rose is lucky to have her.

“[Tory] became an impact player her freshman year, which is kind of unprecedented,” said head volleyball coach Al Partelow. “She’s been a force on the court for four years. She’s really taken over her position and done a great job.”

Russo has a career 573 saves so far as Livingston lacrosse’s keeper, breaking the team record last May with 20 saves in a match. As a junior, Russo also scored an 80-yard goal and proved his skills time and again as the team’s starting goalie over multiple seasons.

Head lacrosse coach Brad Dzama said at the time that Russo has been one of his top three players in talent, leadership and overall positive impact on a team throughout his 19 years of coaching.

“Stephen’s had a great Lacrosse career on top of his football career,” said Cohen. “He’s been on the radar for colleges for Lacrosse for a few years now, so it’s great to see all his hard work end with a scholarship to Cleveland State.”
