Thiel takes two from GCC, eyes PAC top seed

GROVE CITY, PA, April 23, 2002--The Thiel Lady Cats (14-12, 4-2 PAC) posted a pair of 8-0 victories over host Grove City (1-14, 0-6 PAC) on Tuesday to stay alive in the hunt for the No. 1 seed and right to host the 2002 Presidents' Athletic Conference Women's Softball Tournament Friday and Saturday, Apr. 26-27.

Thiel must sweep three-time defending champion Bethany tomorrow to bring the tournament to Greenville.  Meanwhile, Grove City will look to improve on its fifth-place standing with a sweep tomorrow at Waynesburg.

The Lady Wolverines were held to just three hits in each loss to Thiel.  Junior CF Ellie Smith (Grove City, PA/Grove City) accounted for two of the team's six hits on the day.

Senior RHP Laura LeVake (Faribault, MN/Faribault) pitched both games and fanned five, bringing her career strikeout total to 199.
