‘Cat Tales Men’s Soccer “We definitely outplayed them. We out-shot them. But we just couldn’t put the ball in the net,” said coach Jeff Finn. Scoring for the Wildcats were Jochen Stein (Germany), who evened the tally at 1-all with about 30 minutes left in the first half on a penalty kick, and Lathan Gross (Northeastern), who put Penn College up 2-1 in the second half before Penn State Hazleton got the last two goals to pull out the win.

Women’s Soccer Despite losing its third straight match, first-year coach Jennifer Savani is seeing improvement in her team. “The second half was phenomenal (against Allegheny). We did so much better in the second half and I’m really proud of them for sticking it out,” Savani said.

Women’s Volleyball Courtney Eisenhofer (Schuylkill Valley) had 15 kills, thanks to sets from Amber Geckle (Indian Valley) and Melani Grady (Youngsville), while Liz Mast (Elverson) had three blocks in the front row and served up six aces as Penn College blanked Penn State DuBois, 30-27; 31-29, and 30-25. Great defense sparked by Maria Bova (Bethlehem Catholic) also was a key.

Golf Gilbert “Gibby” Balliet (Watsontown) took medalist honors with a 73 and helped Penn College extend its three-season winning streak to 90 consecutive matches when it finished first in a six-team tournament on its home course at White Deer. The Wildcats finished with 299 points while second-place Penn State Mont Alto had 314. Other top scores for Penn College were recorded by Shaun McQuay (Watsontown), 74; Matt Haile (Sunbury), 75, and Tony Stopper (Jersey Shore), 77.
