West Mifflin pitcher Paige Flore celebrates after recording the last out to defeat Trinity, 9-5, during a WPIAL Class AAA quarterfinal-round playoff softball game Monday, May 20, 2013, at California (Pa.) University's Lilley Field in California.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
