Penn College’s staff/faculty team was ready for Monday’s traditional basketball match-up against a student squad, scoring the game’s first seven baskets and jumping out to a 14-0 lead. The students started chipping away during the rest of the first half – hitting some 3-pointers, but still trailing 35-18 at the midpoint. Picking up where they left off, students hit a few more treys in the second half and continued to whittle the staff/faculty lead. Ryan Callahan, determined not to let the student team back in the game, led all scorers with 39 points. The employee team went cold and the students went on a 9-0 run, though, cutting the deficit to 6 points with five minutes left in the game. The students couldn’t capitalize and their opponents again extended the lead to double digits, ultimately winning by a 60-45 tally. Matt Blymier was named MVP, scoring for the first time in three games against student challengers, finishing with 5 points. The students were led by Logan Connolly with 18 points. The rest of that team and their totals: Andreal Wilson, 3 points; Kewaun Hunte, 8; Chris Carvel, 5; Corey Carr, 6; Jackie Chen, 5 points. Andrew Pick didn’t score, but had several rebounds and assists. The staff/faculty team and its players’ stats: Tyler Mensch, 7 points; John McNichol, Chris Howard, Lauren Healy and Jackie Klahold, 2 points each; and Sean Stout, 1. John Vandevere did not score, but contributed three steals.

Saturday evening’s Penn College walk aimed at bringing the topic of suicide “Out of the Darkness” attracted 227 participants and raised $8,547 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.
