Penn College business grad lands front office post in pro soccer

The final destination was always clear for Christian Peters, but the journey to get there was paved in Williamsport.

Peters is the team administrator for Real Monarchs of the United Soccer League, the minor league for Major League Soccer, and he credits his experience as a student-athlete and the hands-on learning he practiced at Pennsylvania College of Technology as the reasons he was able to secure his dream job of working in professional soccer.

“If I didn’t play college soccer, I wouldn’t have been as prepared to handle the hectic schedule that we have in pro soccer,” said Peters, who graduated from Penn College in December 2020. “And having the hands-on assignments in classes really prepared me for the logistical part of my internship, which led to this job.”

From ‘cat to ‘cutter: Kittle back in Bowman Field action

Brittan KittleCatcher Brittan C. Kittle, recently added to the Williamsport Crosscutters roster after a standout performance as a Penn College Wildcat, is already a fan favorite among the Bowman Field faithful after only three games behind the plate. The most decorated baseball player in the institution’s history, Kittle – a Millville resident who graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in plastics and polymer engineering technology – left the college as its all-time leader in hits (169), home runs (22), runs scored (113) and doubles (43). Kittle is profiled in Thursday’s Williamsport Sun-Gazette, the morning after he went 2 for 2 against the Frederick Keys. The Crosscutters play in the MLB Draft League in its inaugural season at the historic local ballpark, where Kittle played home games with his Chris Howard-coached college squad.
