Cranberry Grad Heeter Named Preseason All-PSAC West

| October 31, 2013

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Clarion University’s Mike Kromka (Monroeville, Pa./Gateway) and Hannah Heeter (Seneca, Pa./Cranberry) were both named PSAC West Preseason All-Conference players on Wednesday.

Kromka was the Golden Eagles’ men’s teams’ leading scorer and rebounder a year ago averaging 12.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. An outstanding student as well, Kromka was named a Second Team Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-American in 2013. He enters his senior season with 649 points and 509 rebounds.

Heeter, a second-team Daktronics NCAA Division II Women’s Atlantic Region and first-team PSAC West selection last year, was the lone PSAC player and one of just two in the NCAA Division II to average a season double-double in 2013 with 14.4 points and a school-record 13.3 rebounds per contest. She also led the PSAC in shooting at 51.7 percent. Like Kromka, an outstanding student, Heeter won two Second Team Capital Once/CoSIDA Academic All-American awards last year taking home honors in both basketball and volleyball, where she is a key player on Clarion’s 25-2 team this season after earning all-conference and all-region honors last season on an NCAA Division II qualifying squad. She was also named the PSAC’s Women’s Pete Nevins Scholar-Athlete Award winner as the best student-athlete in the conference as well as the NCAA Division II Conference Commissioners Association Women’s Atlantic Region Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She enters the season with 682 career points and 616 career rebounds and is just the fifth player in school history to average a season double-double in multiple years.

NOTES: The conference preseason poll was also released Wednesday. The Clarion women, coming off a PSAC Playoff appearance and a 13-16 overall and 9-13 PSAC West mark last year, are picked sixth in the PSAC West, while the men, who were 6-20 a year ago and 4-18 in conference play, were picked ninth in the West.
