GREENVILLE, Pa. – The Westminster College women's basketball team had three players named on the All-Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Teams, announced by the PAC on Friday. The league's nine head coaches determined, by vote, this year's All-PAC teams and annual award winners.

Westminster College 18th-year Head Coach Rosanne Scott was named the PAC Coach of the Year, while senior Kayla Bennett (Kent, OH / Theodore Roosevelt) and junior Alazia Greaves (West Sunbury, PA / Moniteau) received All-PAC Second Team recognition.

Scott received Coach of the Year honors for the third time in her career (2004, 2007, 2020) after leading the Titans to the PAC semifinals for the first time since the 2009-10 season. This season, the Titans eclipsed the 20-win mark for the first time since the 2006-07 campaign and only the third time in school-history. Earlier this season, Scott achieved her 200th career victory at the helm of the Titans. Westminster appeared in the league's championship tournament for the fourth-straight year.

Bennett's second team honor is the first all-conference recognition of her career. Bennett currently leads the team with a career-best 12.4 points per game and is second on the team with a career-best 7.9 rebounds per game. The senior was named PAC Player of the Week one time this season and has seven double-doubles this season (eight career). Bennett notched her single-game career-high with 27 points earlier this season and hit her single-game career-high in rebounds with 16 this year.

Greaves received All-PAC second team for the first time of her career. Greaves is currently averaging a career-best 10.5 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game. Greaves has tied her single-game career-high of 25 points on two separate occasions this season. Greaves' biggest impact was felt on the defensive side of the floor, as she leads Westminster with 47 total steals this season. The junior earned her first career double-double in Westminster's PAC Championship Tournament Quarterfinal victory over Waynesburg on Wednesday.

Also receiving All-PAC honors was senior Emily Fromknecht (Erie, PA / McDowell), who earned Honorable Mention recognition. Fromknecht is averaging a team-best 8.4 rebounds per game this season to go along with her 8.7 points per game. Fromknecht leads the PAC with 75 total blocks, 45 more blocks than the next-highest total. Fromknecht also leads the team and is tied for fifth in the PAC with 3.3 assists per game. Earlier this season, Fromkecnht became the ninth women's basketball player in school history to score 1,000 career points and is the first since Titan Hall of Famer Emilee Ackerman (2004-08) (1,483 pts.) Senior Aliya Gage (New Castle, PA / Mohawk) was named to the PAC Sportsmanship Team.
