The Pitt-Greensburg women's basketball team clinched a playoff berth in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference with a 66-50 victory over Hilbert on Saturday.

The Bobcats were scheduled to conclude their regular-season schedule with road games Wednesday against La Roche and Saturday against Medaille to determine their seeding.

It is UPG's second consecutive trip to the playoffs under coach Erin Eaton.

At halftime of Saturday's game at UPG, fall student-athletes were honored for accomplishments this season. They included:

Maria Iovino, women's tennis, all-AMCC first team and player of the year; Garrett Urban, men's cross country, all-AMCC first team and co-rookie of the year; Craig Hixon, Jeremy Niemiec and Robert Smith, men's soccer, all-AMCC second team; Alex Leonard, men's soccer, all-AMCC third team; Jamie Barkman and Nika Simonson, women's volleyball, all-AMCC third team; Jenna Biddle, women's soccer, all-AMCC third team; and Chris Meyer, men's golf, all-AMCC third team.

Pitt-Greensburg freshman guard Rocco Constristano was named a recent men's basketball player of the week in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference after combining for 41 points and 23 rebounds in two games, including a double-double of 19 points and 14 rebounds against D'Youville.

Seton Hill track honors

Seton Hill senior Aron Kurzinski was named a recent winner of the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Division II track athlete of the week.

Kurzinski and senior Calsie Boyd also earned West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference field athletes of the week.
