Beaver Falls, PA – While the coaches in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference are not able to vote for their own players when it comes to All-Conference selections, the PAC did release the 2012 All-Conference selections based on voting from the nine member schools and their head coaches.
Geneva, which finished the season with an overall record of 6-20 and a mark of 5-11 in conference play, placed two players on the All-Conference squad. Both players were listed as honorable mention selections and were among just the 15 players honored by the coaches.
Matt Lorello, the third leading scorer in the PAC and the conference leader in field goal percentage, was an honorable mention selection. He led the Golden Tornadoes 16.1 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per contest. He also led the way with an incredible 62.8% mark shooting from the field.
Lorello was joined by fellow senior Drew Santarsiero on the All-Conference list. Santarsiero started in every game that he played in during the 2011-12 campaign. Splitting time at both guard positions, Santarsiero averaged 8.5 points per game.
Junior guard Nick Wilcox from conference champion Bethany College was named the player of the year. Thomas More head coach Jeff Rogers was selected as the conference coach of the year.
