The St. Vincent athletic department announced the retirement of women's cross country coach Tom Harbert, effective at the conclusion of the 2015-16 sports season.

Harbert has spent 52 seasons coaching several sports.

After starting his career as the coach of the wrestling team, Harbert transitioned into men's cross country after changes in the department altered the lineup of sports the school offered.

Harbert took the men's club lacrosse team to the varsity level, taking over as head coach in 1990 while continuing to coach the men's and women's cross country teams.

In 1999, Harbert became coach of the school's first women's varsity lacrosse team, leading that team through the transition from NAIA to the NCAA in the mid-2000s.

UPG's Landman earns AMCC tennis honor

Pitt-Greensburg senior Shayla Landman (Mt. Pleasant) was named Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference women's tennis player of the week.

Landman is 4-0 at No. 1 singles and 3-1 record at No. 1 doubles. Landman won four singles matches in straight sets and has won 32 consecutive sets in AMCC play, dating to 2013.

Landman helped lead the Bobcats to a 4-0 team record this week, picking up conference wins against La Roche, Medaille, D'Youville and Mt. Aloysius.

The Bobcats are 7-1 overall and remain undefeated in first place at 6-0 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.

AMCC weekly soccer honor goes to Schwegler

Pitt-Greensburg freshman forward Kayleen Schwegler (Hopewell) was named the AMCC's Offensive Player of the Week. Schwegler scored three goals, including the game-winner in the 84th minute, to lift the Bobcats to a 6-5 victory at Medaille in the opening weekend of conference play.

This is the second time this season Schwegler has scored three or more goals. She scored her first four goals in a 7-3 victory over Thiel on Sept. 12.

The freshman leads the Bobcats in goals (seven) and points (14) and is tied for third and fourth in the AMCC in goals and points, respectively.

Westminster sophomore Dom McKinley (Greensburg Salem) rushed for 113 yards, the second time this season he rushed for more than 100 yards in a game, to help Westminster defeat Carnegie Mellon.

McKinley has a team-high 542 yards for the Titans.
