Penn College Baseball, Softball Teams Set for Division III Play

Someone once sang, “Nothing would be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning,” and Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball coach Chris Howard and softball coach Roger Harris couldn’t agree more.

Howard’s baseball team is scheduled to open its season Friday with a single game at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia, before playing eight games over five days in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Harris’ softball squad is also headed to Myrtle Beach, where it will play nine games over five days. As the season progresses, both teams will compete for the first time as provisional members of NCAA Division III in the North Eastern Athletic Conference.

During the 2010-11 season, word came from Lycoming College, whose athletic director at the time was Scott Kennell, that its teams no longer would play at Bardo Gymnasium because the court, originally built in 1939 as part of the Williamsport High School campus, wasn’t regulation size for NCAA Division III schools such as Lycoming.

However, Kennell moved from Lycoming to Penn College and, under his leadership, the Wildcats now are in their first year as provisional members of NCAA Division III, which meant some changes were in order.
