Notebook: Presidents' Athletic Conference adds Geneva

| Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2005

  • In a move that had been anticipated for months, the NCAA Division III Presidents' Athletic Conference made Geneva its third addition this year, swelling the league's membership to nine. Geneva, an NAIA school that competes in the Mid-States Football Association and the American Mideast Conference, joins Thomas More and St. Vincent as new members of the PAC. Geneva, like NAIA St. Vincent, is in an exploratory year as a member of NCAA Division III and is scheduled to begin a four-year provisional membership period in Division III no earlier than the 2007-08 academic year, when PAC schools will begin scheduling the Golden Tornadoes in all sports. Geneva will be eligible for PAC championships upon its acceptance as a full member in Division III, scheduled for no earlier than the 2011-12 academic year.

  • The West Virginia men's basketball team will play its only exhibition game of the 2005-06 season Nov. 7 against Wheeling Jesuit. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. Admission is $5, and all seating will be general admission. WVU students will be admitted free with a valid ID. Season tickets for the 2005-06 season will go on sale Monday. The Mountaineers open the regular season at home Nov. 12, in the Guardians Classic against Louisiana-Monroe.

  • CCAC Allegheny men's basketball coach Bill Shay has been named the 2005 recipient of the Joseph L. "Ziggy" Kahn Memorial Award by the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame of Western Pennsylvania. With a record of 769-334, he has won more games than any men's college basketball coach in Western Pennsylvania history.

  • The Carnegie Mellon men's basketball team has announced its 2005-06 schedule. The schedule is highlighted by 14 University Athletic Association contests and 11 non-conference games, including the annual West Penn Classic and the Tartans' home tournament. One of the non-conference games will be a trip to Division I, Ivy League powerhouse, Princeton Dec. 28.

    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.
