Korgeski named “field athlete of the week”

King’s freshman Jill Korgeski was named the Middle Atlantic Conference women’s indoor track and field “Field Athlete of the Week” on Monday.

This is the second consecutive week Korgeski has been honored by the conference.

Korgeski continued her impressive start to her collegiate career by finishing third in the shot put at the DeSchriver Invitational at Division II East Stroudsburg University on Saturday. Her season-best throw of 12.61 meters was the top Division III mark at the meet. She currently has the top mark in the MAC in the shot put and the 33rd best mark in the nation.

She also finished 10th in the weight throw with a throw of 11.26 meters. That mark is currently ranked 10th best in the conference.

Robinson Named MAC men’s player of the week

Wilkes standout freshman Marcus Robinson was named Middle Atlantic Conference Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

“Marcus played two great games for us in a pivotal stretch of our conference schedule,” head coach Izzi Metz said. “He made big shot after big shot on the offensive end all week while still impacting the game on the defensive and rebounding.”

Robinson totaled 47 points to lead Wilkes to a 2-0 week in conference action and put the Colonels in third-place in the MAC Freedom standings. Robinson scored 23 points with three rebounds, two steals and one assist in an overtime victory over Eastern. The freshman then scored 24 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in a win over Misericordia on Saturday. Robinson finished the week shooting 63 percent (17-of-27) from the field, and 57 percent (8 of-14) from behind the arc.

Penn State Hazleton names women’s soccer coach

Penn State Hazleton Chancellor Gary Lawler announced on Monday that head men’s soccer coach Jesse Shadle has been named women’s soccer coach.

Shadle, who led Nittany Lion soccer to consecutive Penn State University Athletic Conference playoff appearances in his first two seasons as the head coach of the men’s program, officially takes on this new challenge after serving as interim head coach of the Lady Lions since the program’s inception in November 2015. Shadle will also continue his role as the head men’s coach.

“We are excited to officially name Jesse Shadle as our head women’s soccer coach,” Lawler said. “He’s done a terrific job with our men’s program and has also contributed greatly to the exploration and expansion of the new program.”

Shadle played three seasons as a center-back for the Lions from 2006-09, earning PSUAC All-Conference and academic honors while helping the team to three playoff appearances over that span. After graduating from Penn State with a degree in recreation, parks and tourism management, Shadle returned to Hazleton as an assistant under coaches Ian Vernon and Shawn Holcombe for the 2011-12 seasons. When the head coaching position became available in the fall of 2014, Shadle was a natural choice for the role. He guided the team back to the postseason as interim head coach, improving upon the team’s 3-13 record from a season prior.
