Penn State

• Freshman Frannie Crouse (Greensburg Central Catholic) scored in her collegiate debut, helping the 24th-ranked Nittany Lions women's soccer team beat No. 11 West Virginia, 3-1, at the Penn State Invitational on Friday. Penn State then beat Syracuse, 2-0, on Sunday behind two goals from Mallory Weber.

West Virginia

• Junior women's soccer player Kelsie Maloney had a goal and two assists, and senior Kate Schwindel scored twice as the No. 10 Mountaineers rallied from a two-goal deficit to top Missouri, 3-2, in their second game of the Penn State Invitational.

Duquesne

• Junior Caroline Lacy scored in the 105th minute as the Dukes women's soccer team beat Pitt, 1-0, in overtime in the inaugural Steel City Classic on Sunday. All four teams went 1-1, but Pitt won the event because of goal differential.

of NOTE

• Chatham hired former Carnegie Mellon assistant Andrew Garcia as its first men's basketball coach. The Cougars men's team will begin play in 2015.
