A record-breaking senior season won't be Kelsey Oddis' last act for the Pitt-Greensburg women's basketball team.

The Burrell graduate will join Hayley Schaetzle's coaching staff as a graduate assistant.

“As a program, we are excited to keep Kelsey in blue and gold for another season,” Schaetzle said in a news release. “Her commitment to Pitt-Greensburg women's basketball and knowledge of what it takes to perform at a high level in the conference will prove invaluable in the pursuit of an AMCC Championship.”

Oddis broke Pitt-Greensburg's single-season scoring average as a senior, averaging 19.4 points, along with 11.4 rebounds, and earning a spot on the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference's first team. She finished with 1,203 career points, seventh in school history, and 667 rebounds, ranking fourth.

Track and field


Freshman Jordan Geist (Knoch) is an All-American indoors and out. He placed fifth in the shot put Thursday at the NCAA outdoor championships, earning first-team All-American status in the process.

Geist threw 20.32 meters in the shot. He also became a first-team All-American at the NCAA indoor championships earlier this spring after taking fifth in the shot put.

Geist also competed in discus at the outdoor championships but didn't qualify for finals.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
