Saint Vincent set to host PAC softball tournament

Bill Beckner
Saint Vincent’s Alona Sleith set the single-season school record for home runs last season.

The PAC softball championship will be settled in Latrobe.

Saint Vincent earned the top seed in the conference tournament and with it, the right to host the event on Thursday and Friday.

Saint Vincent (25-13, 13-3) has not hosted since 2012 and will be seeking its first conference title since 2016.

The other teams are No. 2 Thiel (17-23), No. 3 Westminster (18-16) and No. 4 Geneva (19-17), the last of which will play Saint Vincent at noon Thursday. Thiel and Westminster open play at 10 a.m.

The tournament is double elimination. The champion goes to the NCAA Division III Championship regionals starting May 9 at a time and site to be determined.

Saint Vincent leads the PAC in a number of offensive categories, including batting average (.345), slugging (.440), on-base (.397), runs (249), hits (382), RBIs (227), and a few pitching slots including ERA (2.55).

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.
