Former Mountain Ridge start Maura Jones earns track athlete of the week award
SOMERSET, N.J. — The Northeast Conference recently released its weekly award winners with Saint Francis University picking up two honors for the first week of competition.
Mountain Ridge graduate Maura Jones was named the NEC women’s track athlete of the week, while Ryan Steinbugl of Altoona, Pa., was chosen as the NEC men’s rookie of the week.
Jones opened the 2012-13 indoor campaign in mid-season form. The senior sprinter raced to an easy victory in the 500-meter dash at the 12th annual Bucknell Bison Opener. Jones clocked in at 1:17.01, which is 0.02 off of the time she produced to take third place in the 2012 NEC Indoor final.
Jones was also on the relay team that won the 400-meter race with a time of 4:01.11.
Steinbugl cleared 4.50 meters (14-foot-9) to finish third in his first collegiate pole vault event at the Bucknell Bison Opener. Steinbugl is only one of 25 NCAA Division I pole-vaulters to have cleared that height thus far this season.
WVU hires Galloway as receivers coach
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Lonnie Galloway is rejoining West Virginia’s football team as receivers coach.
The Mountaineers announced the hiring Thursday.
Galloway spent the past two seasons at Wake Forest. Before that, he coached the WVU receivers from 2008-10.
Galloway fills a spot on the offensive staff that opened when quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital left for Texas A&M.
During his earlier stint, two of Galloway’s top recruits at West Virginia were defensive end Bruce Irvin and wide receiver Tavon Austin.
Irvin was a first-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks last spring. Austin set several records for rushing, receiving and all-purpose yards in his recently finished WVU career.

According to a story in last Sunday’s New York Times, upon completing the deal, Duquette, now general manager of the Baltimore Orioles, told Neal Huntington, then a member of the Expos front office and now the general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, “This trade is going to be hated in Montreal.”
