NCAA regionals next for Penn College softball team

Roar, Wildcats, roar!Preparation and composure.

Those two things are the keys in a season that – for the first time – propelled the Pennsylvania College of Technology women’s softball team to the North Eastern Athletic Conference championship and into the NCAA Division III Northeast Regional tournament.

After winning the conference title on Saturday and improving to 19-3, the Wildcats will learn who their next opponent will be during the NCAA selection show at NCAA.com at 1 p.m. Monday.

And while softball players kept their season alive and await word on their next challenge, seasons came to a close this past week for the college’s golfers, who competed for the first time in the NCAA Division III championships, and baseball squad, which reached the NEAC semifinals.

Penn College golfers set for nationals, men’s lacrosse second in NEAC

Unchartered territory. That, in a sense, is what the Pennsylvania College of Technology men’s golf team will be stepping onto Tuesday when it becomes the college’s first to compete in the NCAA Division III Championships.

A second practice round is scheduled Monday with competition over the following four days on Speidel Golf Club’s Arnold Palmer and Robert Trent Jones Sr. courses at the Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, West Virginia.

According to coach Matt Haile, Sunday’s rain “hasn’t altered the schedule but certainly has altered the ability to get a good feel for the course. Everyone is in the same boat, though.”

While the Wildcat golfers await their official start, the men’s lacrosse team closed out its first season Saturday with a second-place finish in the North Eastern Athletic Conference while NEAC semifinal games in baseball and softball scheduled for Sunday were postponed until Tuesday because of rain.

Penn College claims first NEAC golf crown, NCAA tourney bid

Conference team champion. Individual co-champion and Golfer of the Year. Coach of the Year. It can’t get much better for the Pennsylvania College of Technology golf team.

Yet maybe it can, as it also became the college’s first team to earn a spot in the NCAA Division III National Championships.

In other Penn College sports action last week, the men’s tennis season ended while the women’s tennis season was extended and playoff hopes remain on the horizon for athletes in baseball, softball and men’s lacrosse.

Penn College golf, tennis teams look to openers

After being idled by the pandemic last spring and fall, Pennsylvania College of Technology golf and men’s and women’s tennis teams are more than ready to get going again.

The golf season is scheduled to start Wednesday when Lycoming College and Susquehanna University square off with the Wildcats at Williamsport Country Club while the tennis season begins Saturday at Lancaster Bible College. And one thing athletes in both sports face is getting back into a competitive-play mode after their long layoffs in a very short time as North Eastern Athletic Conference playoffs will be held in just three weeks.

Over this past weekend, the college’s men’s lacrosse and women’s softball teams both saw action while the scheduled baseball games were postponed.

Penn College baseball, softball teams ready

More than a year after their last competitive NCAA Division III games, it would be an understatement to say that the Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball and softball teams are eager to get back into action.

Both squads are scheduled to open at home Saturday – baseball hosting Penn State Harrisburg in a 1 p.m. twin bill at Bowman Field and softball entertaining Morrisville State College at 1 p.m. in a doubleheader at Elm Park. For the baseball team, it will have been 379 days since it last played while the softball team has been idled for 378 days – both due to the COVID-19 pandemic that prematurely ended all spring sports a year ago.

And playing an all-North Eastern Athletic Conference schedule that includes 10 doubleheaders, the importance of every game can’t be overlooked.

Penn College esports coach assesses first full season

“Amazing.”

That’s how Joshua Young, Pennsylvania College of Technology esports coach, described the college’s recently completed first full season of competition in the National Association for Collegiate Esports.

“We started our first varsity season by competing in one of the top leagues (in NACE). Our teams learned to have confidence in themselves and the team because we were competitive against large traditional sports schools like the University of Michigan, Boise State and Mizzou,” Young said.

“Our main goal was to build the program for a successful future. We competed in Overwatch, Rocket League and Valorant in the NACE Fall Cup. We finished the season exceeding all expectations with our Overwatch and Valorant teams making the postseason, making that two out of our four teams making the playoffs,” he said.
