Latrobe graduate Anthony Monteparte went 3 for 4, including a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of a six-run seventh inning, to help lift Geneva to an 8-7 victory against Waynesburg in a Presidents' Athletic Conference baseball game over the weekend.

The sophomore third baseman also had a double and single in the victory.

Grimm's perfection helps Kenn State earn a split

Maddy Grimm (Ligonier Valley) hit her eighth home run of the season and went 7 for 7 at the plate in a two-game series against Miami (Ohio).

Grimm went 4 for 4 with a home run, double and two RBIs in a 9-1 victory.

She has 26 hits, six doubles and 24 RBIs and leads Kent State with a .371 batting average.

SVC's Kilkeary homers again

Freshman left fielder Eddie Kilkeary hit a three-run home run in the first inning, but St. Vincent needed two runs in the bottom of the sixth to pull out a 10-8 victory Monday and earn a split against Waynesburg in a Presidents' Athletic Conference game.

Waynesburg won the first game 13-5. Second baseman Ben Webb (Greensburg Central Catholic) had two hits and an RBI in Game 1.

Kilkeary has a team-high five home runs and 22 RBIs.

John Malone (Connellsville) leads St. Vincent (9-11, 4-6 PAC) with a .528 batting average.

Malone was the winning pitcher and drove in the winning run last week as St. Vincent edged Bethany, 5-4.

Steve Janik (Greensburg Central Catholic) tossed a complete game and Kilkeary had a game-winning two-run home run as St. Vincent completed the sweep of Bethany in a 2-1 win.

Gumbita, Bates shining for first-place Gannon

Sophomore pitcher Olivia Gumbita (Latrobe) improved to 7-1, and Alyssa Bates (Hempfield) hit her team-high third home run of the season to lead Gannon to a sweep of Seton Hill, 9-5 and 2-0, in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West doubleheader.

Bates, who was named PSAC Player of the Week, also has a team-high 19 RBIs.

Gannon is 14-5 overall and 8-0 in the conference, while Seton Hill fell to 15-8-1 and 7-6-1.

Christine Henderson (Ligonier Valley) was the losing pitcher in one of the games. She also had three hits in the doubleheader, including a double. Hope Pehrson (Hempfield) pitched two scoreless innings of relief for Seton Hill.
