Saturday evening’s Penn College walk aimed at bringing the topic of suicide “Out of the Darkness” attracted 227 participants and raised $8,957 to fund local preventive efforts and awareness events. In partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, teams of bundled-up walkers – some paying tribute to friends and family members, others joining in support and solidarity – traversed campus in a 5K loop that began and ended at the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center. The highest overall individual fundraiser was Eileen Sodano, the highest community team fundraiser was “In Memory of Rhian,” the highest fundraiser among campus teams was Penn College Welding and the highest among student organizations was Phi Mu Delta (members of which were stationed along the route to direct foot traffic). Donations will be accepted through Dec. 31.

With their regular season behind them, Pennsylvania College of Technology cross-country runners are preparing for the end-of-the-season North Eastern Athletic Conference Championships. Men’s and women’s action is scheduled Saturday at Lancaster Bible College.
“It’s been a pretty fair season,” second-year coach Nick Patton said of his men’s squad. “We’ve got a lot of new people, so we’re still figuring out the 8K (race distance), but overall I’m pretty impressed with the progress we’ve made from the beginning to the end. The team as a whole has made progress.”

Mother Nature was among the parents in town for Penn College’s first Homecoming & Family Weekend, bringing persistent rain but failing to deter attendees from enjoying a full schedule of activities centered around “Our Proud Penn College Days.” The turbulent weather prompted relocation of a number of those events, but the celebration – the first-ever melding of two formerly separate observances – went off with nary a hitch. Among the weekend offerings were a four-day carnival; dessert receptions in each of the college’s six academic schools; soccer matches; the Athletic Hall of Fame induction and banquet; an alumni golf outing; guided tours of campus and historic Williamsport; a tailgating lunch with President Davie Jane Gilmour; and an Oktoberfest that included a reunion of past student ambassadors, Student Government Association members and orientation leaders.

The freshmen started Wednesday’s annual Homecoming flag football game in possession, driving the ball downfield to take an early 7-0 lead … and that was it. The squad of upperclassmen went on to score 42 unanswered points to defeat the first-year team, 42-7. The upperclassmen scored on touchdown passes, touchdown runs and interceptions returned for touchdowns. Determined not to give up, the freshmen made one final drive to within the upperclassmen’s 20-yard line, only to have the ball intercepted as time ran out. (Watch for more early next week when a Homecoming photo gallery is posted to PCToday.)

Penn College junior Hailee L. Hartman earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s top honor when she was named the Division III Women’s Player of the Week. The award comes a day after she was named Player of the Week by the North Eastern Athletic Conference – both mark the first time any player at Penn College has garnered either award. A nursing major, Hartman helped lead her teammates to two wins on the week, improving their record to 5-3-1 overall (4-0 NEAC) and tallying 11 points for herself. The junior forward from Lampeter recorded five goals for the week, two of which came in the second half of the Wildcats’ 5-0 blanking of Wilson College. She went on to record a hat trick and an assist in the Wildcats’ 6-1 defeat of Gallaudet University. Hartman is currently second in the conference, with 18 points on the year, and is tied for NEAC lead in goals with eight.

The season began in five fall sports for Pennsylvania College of Technology athletes last week and, this week, the men’s tennis team is set for its first action when it plays at crosstown rival Lycoming College on Monday.
Ethan Rosler, of Bloomsburg, and Austin Adams, of Center Valley, are the lone returning players from last season, when Penn College finished 2-10 overall: 1-4 in the fall and 1-6 in the spring (0-4 in North Eastern Athletic Conference play). But first-year coach John Machak has high hopes for improvement. Rosler finished fourth at No. 3 singles in the conference playoffs.

For the 17th year Wednesday, Penn College students and employees enjoyed “Pack the Park Night” with the Williamsport Crosscutters. Free tickets were available across campus and complimentary bus service transported students safely to and from BB&T Ballpark. Fans saw a 4-2 win by the hometown favorites, who posted a winning season in their division but fell just short of a playoff berth. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable outing – with fun, friends and food!
