The No. 12-seeded Florida Gulf Coast women’s basketball team narrowly missed a chance to pull off a first-round upset over No. 5 Oklahoma State on Saturday, bringing an end to a solid season for the Eagles.
It also closes the book on a fantastic collegiate career by General McLane graduate Sarah Hansen.
A four-year starter for the Eagles, Hansen recorded seven points and nine rebounds during the 61-60 overtime loss to Oklahoma State.
Hansen’s time with Florida Gulf Coast has been memorable to say the least, as she leaves the program as the all-time leader in 12 categories, including points, rebounds, steals and field goals made. She ranks seventh among the Atlantic Sun’s all-time point producers.
For her career, Hansen scored 1,901 points and recorded 887 rebounds.
Proctor named PSAC West Softball Athlete of the Week
Cochranton graduate and current Edinboro freshman Shelby Proctor was awarded for her recent play on the softball field, as she was honored as the Pennsylvania State Athletics Conference West Softball Player of the Week for the week ending on March 23.
The freshman began the week by going 2-for-4 at the plate with four RBIs during a 10-5 win over Coker on March 17.
Proctor wasn’t done, as she had a big day on March 20 during a doubleheader against Fairmont State. She collected two hits in Game 1, including her first career home run in a 3-2 win.
For the week, Proctor helped Edinboro post a 3-1 record. Proctor batted .429 for the week, including a .643 slugging percentage and a .500 on-base percentage. She combined for seven RBIs, six hits and four runs while not recording a strikeout.
Sada keeping busy
Former Saegertown standout Stephen Sada has been getting plenty of work on the diamond as of late, and the Miami (Ohio) infielder has made the most of his opportunity.
On March 21, Miami opened up conference play with an 11-3 win over Western Michigan. Sada went 2-for-5 at the dish in the win, with a run scored and a stolen base.
One day later, the two teams were at it again, this time with Western Michigan coming away with a 2-1 victory.
Sada drove home the only Miami run of the game with an RBI single and drew a pair of walks in the loss.
On Sunday, the Redhawks won the rubber match against Western Michigan in a 7-6 extra inning thriller. Sada walked and scored a run in the win.
