Penn College Wildcats

After a busier-than-normal summer “off season,” the Pennsylvania College of Technology Athletics Department is gearing up for the start of the fall sports seasons.

Students returned to classes Aug. 15 and athletes have started working out for their respective openers, which include men’s and women’s cross-country, women’s soccer and women’s tennis on Thursday, Sept. 1; men’s soccer and women’s volleyball on Friday, Sept. 2; men’s tennis on Monday, Sept. 5; and men’s golf on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Among the highlights of the summer were notification from the National Collegiate Athletic Association that the college successfully completed its second year of provisional Division III membership and approved its waiver request to bypass the third year and begin its final year of provisional membership starting Sept. 1, the naming of two new head coaches, announcement of four new members of the college’s athletic Hall of Fame, announcement of the renewal of its partnerships with ESPN Williamsport and Stretch Internet to broadcast Wildcats home athletic events in the 2016-17 season, and the resignation of athletic director Scott E.

Being as young as we are, we’re hoping that with our returners coming back and having that year of experience collegiately and postseason-wise under their belts, and (with) our incoming freshman class, that we will be able to compete over the next three or four years in the postseason,” Klahold said.
