Shaw picks Seton Hill
Greensburg Salem senior Alec Shaw decided to wrestle and play baseball at Seton Hill.
Shaw celebrated his announcement by tossing a three-hit shutout against Derry as the Golden Lions won, 3-0.
This has been a big season for Shaw, who also earned all-state wrestling honors by placing sixth at the PIAA championships and third in the WPIAL at 170 pounds. Shaw wrestled in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic and won his match for the WPIAL All-Stars.
“Seton Hill has been after me to wrestle from the beginning of the season,” Shaw said. “Well, they finally got me. It was hard to decide which sport was my favorite because I have pretty good success in both.”
More recruiting updates:
• Latrobe senior Joel Cawoski also gave a verbal commitment to wrestle at Seton Hill.
• Penn-Trafford senior Matt McGillick has decided to attend The Citadel for wrestling. McGillick placed sixth in the state and was a WPIAL runner-up at 182. He was a three-time PIAA qualifier.
• Norwin junior soccer player Erin Arnold will continue her career at Slippery Rock.
• Franklin Regional baseball player Will Constantin committed to play at Clarion. He is a senior shortstop.
