Seton Hill women knock off second straight ranked opponent

Seton Hill Athletics
Seton Hill’s Megan Maresic had 22 points in the Griffins’ upset of No. 8 IUP on Saturday.

The Seton Hill women’s basketball team defeated a ranked opponent for the second game in a row.

After upsetting No. 17 Cal (Pa.) on Wednesday in Greensburg, the Griffins downed No. 8 IUP, 71-59, on the road in the regular-season finale. Seton Hill moved to 18-10 (12-9) and dropped IUP to 23-3 (18-3).

Graduate transfer Megan Marecic led all scorers with 22 points and added 12 rebounds. Courtney Cecere added 18 points and eight rebounds, and Cheyenne Trest (Canon-McMillan) added 14 points for Seton Hill.

A basket by IUP’s Carolyn Appleby (Greensburg Central Catholic) gave the Crimson Hawks a 55-53 lead in the fourth quarter, but the Griffins used a late 17-2 run to pull away. Back-to-back 3s by Cecere and Marecic gave Seton Hill a lead they would not give back.

Lauren Wolosik (North Catholic) led IUP with 17 points. Appleby finished with 13.

Seton Hill will host Pitt-Johnstown at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the first round of the PSAC Tournament.

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.
