Student-athlete builds game plan from commitment, focus

For nursing student and women’s basketball player Allison M. “Allie” Troup, no stranger to juggling on-the-court dynamism with in-the-lab rigor, Penn College represents the “perfect match.” “There’s many challenges that go along with it,” the Huntingdon resident says in a two-minute Wildcat Spotlight video. “It’s pretty difficult to manage my time, but I tend to do a pretty good job with it because I’m very organized and I kind of give myself a set schedule.”

For this thriving Wildcat, ‘forward’ is a position AND a direction

Sharing the pride and sense of family that come with wearing his soccer team’s uniform, as well as the alluringly tactile focus of his chosen career path, Colton N. Wartman is the latest Penn College student-athlete illuminated by the Wildcat Spotlight. “They call your name, you step out, you’ve got the logo on your chest,” the automotive technology management student from Ellicott City, Maryland, says in a 2½-minute YouTube video. “It’s a cool moment to just stand there, be recognized and … represent your school.”

Penn College wrestlers in holiday split

On Monday at Lycoming College in the Rennie Roadarmel Allstate Duals, the Wildcats went 2-2 with wins over King’s College, 25-19, and New Jersey City University, 29-22, and losses to SUNY Cortland, 30-6, and the host team, 27-17, as their record went to 2-3. Even the loss to Lycoming was a bright spot as it marked the first points they ever have scored in a match against the Warriors.

Individually for Penn College, junior Jake Kallenborn, of Port Allegany, went 4-0 in the 184-pound weight class with a pin, two technical falls and a decision to hike his season record to 13-3.

Athletics benefactors glimpse results of their ‘unrivaled generosity’

Dan and Monica Klingerman had the opportunity to see their gifts at work during a recent visit to Pennsylvania College of Technology’s main campus.

A gift from the Klingerman family allowed Penn College to renovate and equip a new wrestling room, as well as the department’s office that has been renamed and rededicated as The Klingerman Family Athletics Suite. The facilities now carry a bold look and upgraded functionality, while offering a cutting-edge atmosphere to better serve current and future Wildcats.

“The generosity of the Klingerman family is unrivaled in my time at Penn College,” said Jamie R. Miller, head wrestling coach. “The Klingerman Family Wrestling Fund created a space where our team feels at home – a place they can call their own – and most importantly, a place that they get excited to spend their time. It is great to see prospective students’ eyes light up when we tour the room, and you can tell that there is a moment when they realize they will feel at home here. We are incredibly grateful for the Klingerman family making this a reality.”

Concrete-mixing soccer player blends footwork, hands-on learning

For Madison L. Kistler, being on the Penn College women’s soccer team is like having a second family. The camaraderie and chemistry she shares with her teammates is nothing short of special, and gave her the confidence to get involved on campus. She holds a leadership position with the ConCreate Design Club – “I love concrete!” the Kutztown resident readily admits in a Wildcat Spotlight video posted to the college’s YouTube channel – and enjoys the connection every bit as much as “that rush that you get when you step out onto the field.” Take a few minutes and get to know Madison. Her drive (she has one degree and is working on two more) is infectious, and her personality, in true athletics fashion, is a winning one.

Achieving goals, on and off the field

Megan A. BugbeeCampus gratitude extends to the sports arena in this “Give Thanks” installment, as Wildcat student-athlete Megan A. Bugbee shares appreciation for those whose philanthropy has benefited her – in and out of the classroom.

Bugbee, from Geneseo, New York, was recruited as a member of the Penn College women’s soccer team and has found academic satisfaction as a building science and sustainable design: architectural technology concentration student. Not surprising, considering that the ingredients for success are the same in both worlds: “a level of passion (and) hard work,” whether hitting the books or moving the ball.

Writing for the college’s blog as Thanksgiving approaches, the accomplished senior cited the enhancements she and her teammates have experienced as a result of financial benefactors.

“During my time as a student-athlete, UPMC Field was built and several other facility improvements were completed,” Bugbee said in a Q&A. “Donor support is very much appreciated, and I am grateful for our Wildcat Club members who contribute to help improve our programs.”
