St. Vincent soccer player named president of conference committee

| Tuesday, April 9, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Aaron Wilkinson, a junior on the men's soccer team at St. Vincent College, has been elected president of the Presidents' Athletic Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

The committee, whose members are chosen from the seven conference schools, is available to discuss campus policies involving academics and athletics.

Wilkinson served as vice president in 2012-13. He succeeds Washington & Jefferson women's soccer player Hannah Shaner, a two-term committee president.

Junior Thomas Paulone, a Jeannette native who plays football at Waynesburg, was elected vice president.

“SAAC has been an integral part of my college experience since my first year on the committee as a freshman,” Wilkinson said. “I am truly excited to be able to serve not only St. Vincent College but the entire PAC as president. With the help of Tom Paulone, our commissioners and all of the campus SAACs, together we can have an extremely productive term and become even more involved on our campuses and in our communities.”

Maggie Garvey, a junior women's lacrosse player at St. Vincent, has been named SAAC Scholar-Athlete of the Month for March.

Garvey, a midfielder, is a three-year starter, serves as team captain and maintains a 3.92 grade-point average as a biology major. She had totaled 13 points for the Bearcats (5-2) entering Tuesday's scheduled home game against Wilson.

Track and field

Chansler Poole of St. Vincent qualified for the Eastern College Athletic Conference meet with a winning time of 3 minutes, 55.52 seconds in the 1,500-meter run at the John Homon Open in Mt. Union, Ohio.

Cam Stumme and Poole, who was named Presidents' Athletic Conference Track Athlete of the Week, won their respective events, Stumme claiming the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 9:47.50.

Both times represent the second-fastest in school history in each event.
