Saint Vincent trio garner PAC honors
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).
