Men’s Basketball
Leroy Joiner (Williamsport) tallied 24 points and Greg Solyak (Lancaster) chipped in with 19 as the Wildcats won their fifth game in a row by beating Penn State Schuylkill. Joiner exploded for a season-high 34 points and Craig Flint (Port Allegany) became the college men’s all-time leading career scorer, but it wasn’t enough to keep Penn College from falling in a nonconference game against Luzerne County Community College. Flint scored 15 points for the Wildcats and pushed his career total to 1,054, eclipsing the mark of 1,043 set by his older brother, Tony, whose career ended in 2006. Tom Little (Beacon Falls, Conn.) added 16 points in the loss, which snapped a five-game win streak.

Stepping up against King’s College to end the week, the Wildcats held early leads of 9-2 and 12-5 before King’s started to assert itself. Penn College kept it close through much of the half before a late King’s spurt gave it a 56-41 halftime lead. King’s dominated the second half, 52-24, and held a 55-32 rebounding advantage for the game. Flint and Mike Knepp (Swiftwater) each scored 13 points for Penn College and Solyak added 11.

Women’s Basketball
Penn College saw its four-game win streak end with an overtime loss to Penn State Schuylkill. Erica Logan (Montoursville) scored 19 points in the defeat and Chelsey Holmes (Hughesville) added 16. In a loss at NCAA Division III Elmira (N.Y.) College, Kelsey Mack (Douglassville) scored 14 points, while Logan and April Gallagher (Avis) each added 10. The Wildcats got back on the winning track against Davis College, getting 13-point scoring performances from Holmes and Gallagher. Also scoring in double figures for Penn College were Jess Strasser (Hawley) with 11 and Logan with 10.

Men’s Volleyball
Penn College opened its season with wins over Susquehanna and Juniata. “Everybody stepped it up. “¦ It was a good, good day all the way around. It was a great start to the season,” coach Wes Strayer said. Strayer also had high praise for each of his players, among them middle hitter Andy Epley (New Oxford), who he called “unstoppable.”
