Notebook: RMU boasts four players on all-NEC team

Four Robert Morris University football players were named to the all-Northeast Conference preseason team. They are senior linebacker James Noel, senior defensive lineman Jason Forrest, senior tight end Rupert Rickards and junior kicker Nathan DiLorenzo. Noel was named last season as the conference’s defensive player of the year after logging a school-record 115 tackles.

  • Geneva College was chosen to finish third in the Mid-States Football Association Mideast League in a poll of conference coaches. Six-time defending Mideast champion St. Francis (Ind.), which lost to Carroll, Mont., 15-13, in the NAIA championship game last season, was the unanimous favorite to repeat. McKendree was the top choice to win the Midwest League championship.

  • The Geneva men’s basketball team added former Ball State assistant Chad Briscoe to its coaching staff. Briscoe spent the past two seasons at Ball State, an NCAA Division I school that competes in the Mid-American Conference.

  • Scott Statler, the only coach to serve the men’s and women’s golf programs at Pitt-Greensburg, has resigned for persona l reasons. Statler led the men’s program to four consecutive Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference championships (1997-2000) and was named conference coach of the year three times (1998-2000).

  • Former Penn State fencers Nonpatat Panchan and Adam Wiercioch were scheduled to compete in the the 2005 World University Games in Izmir, Turkey, beginning Thursday. Panchan was a two-time NCAA champion in the foil. Wiercioch also was a four-time NCAA All-American.

    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.
