On Monday at the Lycoming College Duals, Penn College went 2-2 to improve to 7-5 in dual matches on the season after defeating King’s College, 33-11, and Pitt-Bradford, 35-5; then losing to Muhlenberg College, 35-18, and Lycoming, 50-0.

Penn College now is idle until Jan. 5, when it competes in the North-South Duals at Ursinus College. 

Men’s basketball 
Hosting the Crosstown Challenge on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Wildcats lost to Marymount University, 88-61, in their first game and lost to Chatham University, 94-60, in the second game to fall to 1-10 on the season. On opposite days, Lycoming College also hosted Marymount and Chatham. 

Against Marymount, Ryan Lockman, of White Salmon, Washington, led Penn College with 19 points and 14 rebounds while Ben Sosa, of Loyalsock Township, scored 14 points. Marymount outscored the Wildcats 34-4 in points off turnovers. Penn College hit on just 3 of 14 shots from the 3-point line while Marymount connected on 16 of 44. 

Against Chatham, the visitors rolled to a 50-24 halftime lead and coasted from there. Lockman again led Penn College in scoring, with 16 points, and Imari Walker, of Pittsburgh, scored 14 points. Three-point scoring again was a key factor as Chatham hit on 18 of 34 attempts and the Wildcats on 5 of 16 tries.
