Gateway graduate Tom Kromka is a fifth-year senior basketball player at Saint Vincent.

A trio of Saint Vincent athletes picked up weekly awards Monday from the Presidents Athletic Conference in senior Tom Kromka (men’s basketball), junior Paige Montrose (women’s basketball) and senior Jacob Davis (men’s swimming).

Kromka was named PAC Player of the Week after guiding the conference-leading Bearcats (14-, 7-0 PAC) to a pair of wins. The Gateway graduate scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in an 88-75 victory over Waynesburg, and had 25 points and 14 rebounds as the Bearcats downed Geneva, 83-69. He shot 20 of 29 over the two games. Kromka is second in the PAC in scoring (16.9 ppg), rebounding (8.1 rpg), field-goal percentage (59 pct.) and blocks (30).

The Bearcats have won six straight.

Montrose, a Seneca Valley product, was named PAC Player of the Week after she averaged 12 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.5 steals across a pair of wins for the PAC-leading Bearcats (13-2, 7-0). She scored 16 and pulled down 10 rebounds in a 69-64 win at Waynesburg.

Davis, from Brashear, was named PAC Diver of the Week. He posted four first-place finishes in a 174-110 loss to Allegheny, winning the 100-yard freestyle (47.36 seconds), the 200 freestyle (1:47.97) and contributed to wins by the 200 medley relay (1:41.16) and 200 free relay (1:30.55).

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.
