Seton Hill's women's basketball team signed two players to the 2015 recruiting class.

The latest is Chrisanna Green of Jamestown, N.Y. She was the Buffalo News Player of the Year.

Green is a 5-foot-8 guard/forward who averaged 27.0 points and 13.3 rebounds this season.

In the fall, Hannah Laslo, a 6-1 forward from York Catholic, signed. She averaged 10.4 points.

Laslo was the starting soccer goalkeeper for Richland (District 6) as a freshman before the family moved to York. Laslo's mother, Chris McClurkin, was a standout at Bishop McCort, where she scored 1,566 points and grabbed 1,522 rebounds. She played at Marshall.

Seton Hill pitcher honored

Seton Hill senior pitcher Christine Henderson was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West Pitcher of the Week. It's her second PSAC award.

Henderson helped the Griffins to an 8-0 week by going 4-0 in the circle with one save. She pitched 23 innings, giving up five runs on 15 hits. She struck out 32 and didn't walk a batter.

Henderson is 10-2 this season with three saves and a 2.30 ERA. She also leads the Griffins (28-7-1) with a .407 batting average. Her 50 hits and 13 doubles lead the PSAC. She has scored 26 runs and added three triples, a homer and 28 RBIs.

Pitt-Greensburg outfielder honored

The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference named Pitt-Greensburg junior outfielder Sarah Giebel as the Softball Player of the Week. She helped Pitt-Greensburg go 7-2.

Giebel hit .517 with 15 hits in 29 at-bats. She had three doubles and a triple with 12 runs scored, 10 RBIs, and three stolen bases.

After adding the three stolen bases last week, she is second in the AMCC with 10.

WCCC to host tourney

Westmoreland County Community College will be the host site for the NJCAA Region XX Division III double-elimination softball tournament Friday.

No. 2 seed WCCC will face No. 3 Anne Arundel at 10 a.m., and No. 1 CCAC-South squares off against No. 4 Montgomery College of Maryland at noon.

Seton Hill third baseman an award semifinalist

Seton Hill senior third baseman Nick Sell has been named a Tino Martinez Award semifinalist for the second time. Sell also was a semifinalist during his sophomore season, when he finished fourth in voting.

Sell leads the Griffins and the PSAC in nearly all offensive categories and has rewritten the Seton Hill record book this season. He is hitting .468, second on the team and in the league, and he also leads the team and the PSAC in slugging percentage (1.113), runs scored (54), hits (66), RBIs (79) and home runs (24).

Sell also has 13 doubles, three triples and nine stolen bases. Sell owns the Seton Hill career marks in hits, doubles, homers and RBIs and holds the single-season record with 24 home runs.

WCCC player headed to Point Park

Westmoreland County Community College sophomore basketball player Devin Larkin will sign a letter-of-intent to play at Point Park.

Larkin was named to the 2015 NJCAA D III Honorable Mention All-American Team. Larkin led WCCC to an 18-8 record this season along with capturing the 2014-15 Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference Title and qualifying for NJCAA regionals.

She became WCCC's all-time leading scorer with 908 points. She averaged 21.2 points and 15.2 rebounds.

SH track star honored

Seton Hill sophomore Chelsia Poole (Penn-Trafford) was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week. She is the first Griffin to earn an outdoor weekly track and field award.

Poole finished in first place in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the Dave Labor Invitational at Slippery Rock, running a Seton Hill school-record time and NCAA provisional qualifying time of 11:07.25. She also finished second in the 800, running 2:20.65.

Poole's time is the best in the PSAC and region in the steeplechase. She has the eighth best time in the 800 in the PSAC.
