West Mifflin senior right-hander Paige Flore, the 2013 Daily News Girls Athlete of the Year, gave Slippery Rock a verbal commitment to play softball for the NCAA Division II school in 2014-15.

In 2012, Flore was West Mifflin's No. 1 pitcher and a key figure in helping the Titans end a 15-year postseason drought.

They won their first WPIAL playoff game since 1998 and posted a 17-6 record after losing to West Allegheny in the Class AAA consolation game.

Flore, who won 12 games, had 82 strikeouts and was 2-2 in the playoffs, also averaged double figures in scoring for the West Mifflin girls basketball team, which won a preliminary-round game in the WPIAL Class AAA playoffs.
