St. Vincent senior set to be honored

Devin McGrath, a four-year starter on the St. Vincent College women's basketball team, will be honored as the 2013 YWCA Westmoreland Sportswoman of the Year at a banquet open to the public from 6 to 8:30 p.m. April 11 at the Greensburg Ramada Inn and Conference Center.
The St. Vincent women's tennis team will be recognized with the Committee's Choice Award after securing the first conference championship in program history after an unbeaten 14-0 record in the regular season and a 9-0 mark in the Presidents' Athletic Conference.
The banquet, in its 19th year, has honored more than 1,000 female athletes.
McGrath is a three-time all-PAC selection, including twice as a first-team choice in 2012 and ‘13. As a senior, she led the PAC in rebounding (10.3 rpg.) and was the only women's basketball player in the conference to average a double-double, ranking fourth in the league in scoring (16.1 ppg.).
McGrath finished her college career 10th on St. Vincent's all-time scoring list with 1,387 points.
The women's tennis team, under first-year coach Chris McMahon, shared the PAC Tournament title with Westminster (Pa.) and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament — their first postseason appearance — because of a regular-season victory over Westminster.
St. Vincent team members included seniors Jessica McKetta, Chantal Mitchell and Stephanie Rubin; junior Amanda Gans; sophomores Kylie Auman and Regina Woloshun; and freshmen Jacquelyn Hauser, Hannah Kahn, Shayla Landman and Amanda Marker.
General admission tickets to the banquet are $32. Student admission is $20. More information can be obtained by calling 724-834-9390.
St. Vincent righthander Gary Gerhardt was named Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III South Pitcher of the Week on March 26 after tossing a complete-game, 1-0 shutout against Westminster (Pa.) on March 23. The honor came just two days after the senior claimed Presidents' Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.
