Redshirt junior outfielder Colton Carney drove in eight runs, and Seton Hill rolled to a 19-8 victory against Bloomsburg on Thursday in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference tournament at Point Stadium in Johnstown.

Carney went 4 for 5 with a home run and triple. Senior designated hitter Mark Colella went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs and two doubles for Seton Hill (29-20).

It was the second consecutive day Seton Hill defeated a team from the East Division. The Griffins knocked off West Charter on Wednesday.

The Griffins jumped out to a 5-0 led in the first inning only to see Bloomsburg (30-17) tie the score in the second. A four-run third inning gave the Griffins the lead for good.

In other action, Slippery Rock stayed alive by defeating West Chester, 14-4, and Shippensburg knocked Gannon out of the tournament 8-2.

Millersville and Mercyhurst were scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m., but rain and thunderstorms pushed the game back.

Softball

Gannon (30-12) scored seven runs in the second inning and rallied to defeat Seton Hill, 10-1, in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional at West Virginia Wesleyan.

Seton Hill (23-15) will face West Virginia Wesleyan in an elimination game at 1:30 p.m. on Friday. Gannon and West Virginia State play at 11 a.m.
