Students in exercise science are lending a hand to the Wildcat women’s soccer team as players prepare for the fall collegiate season. The students are conducting “10-rep max” testing – determining the highest weight the soccer players can lift for 10 repetitions. Using the information, Judy Quinti, assistant professor of exercise science, will develop a summer strength-training exercise program for each athlete. The idea came from an exercise science student who, for a class assignment, reviewed an article in the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Strength and Conditioning Journal. Penn College’s exercise science major is an NSCA educationally recognized program. Because a section of the article addressed strength gains for soccer players, Quinti decided to forward it to the college’s men’s and women’s soccer coaches. Women’s soccer coach John McNichol responded, sending his players to the Bardo Gym to take advantage of the exercise science department’s expertise.

Thursday’s “Take Back the Night” event in Rose Street Commons, part of Penn College’s observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, drew survivors and supporters alike into a single-minded alliance against sexual violence. Kacie G. Hopkins, YWCA Northcentral Pennsylvania’s community educator/shelter advocate, attended the event, which was followed by “Glowga” (glow-in-the-dark yoga), at which donations of money and personal-care items were accepted for the YWCA’s Wise Options program. The Wildcat women’s softball and soccer teams were on hand and took part in Glowga, along with Phi Mu Delta. “Having the teams and fraternity participate was a great addition to the evening,” said Mallory L. Weymer, coordinator of student health and wellness education/suicide prevention specialist, “and really showed their organization’s commitment to the safety and well-being of our Penn College community.”
