Hoops Homecoming Puts Alums Back in Action


In what Alumni Relations and Athletics hope will become a January tradition, members of past Lady Wildcat basketball teams relived their proud Penn College days at a weekend reunion in Bardo Gymnasium. The women played a Saturday morning pickup game, were recognized at halftime of the current squad’s contest against College of St. Elizabeth and swapped stories during a pasta buffet in the Thompson Professional Development Center.
