Recruit Day caps-off successful week in athletics
Over 40 prospective recruits, encompassing all nine athletic programs, descended on the Greater Allegheny campus this past weekend for the Recruit Day event. Athletes in attendance were treated with a meet-and-greet with their sports’ coaches, and were able to participate in a Q&A session with current Greater Allegheny student-athletes.
The event was the pinnacle of the Greater Allegheny athletics schedule this week, as the wrestling, and both women’s and men’s basketball teams combined to pick up three victories in the seven day span.
The wrestling team defeated PSUAC rival, Penn State Beaver 30-12, using pins from Genkie Stoutamire and Andre Ellis.
Women’s basketball picked up two wins this week, including a thrilling, 64-60 victory over Westmoreland Community College; they also defeated Penn State Worthington Scranton 73-59. Christina Floyd earned her fourth double-double of the season in Saturday’s win over Scranton, scoring 18 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.
Men’s basketball suffered two tough defeats, but still produced strong individual performances: Aaron Byrd scored 11 points and accumulated 14 rebounds in the loss to Worthington-Scranton, with Jeremy McMunn adding 13.
