Penn College unveils UPMC Field


A synthetic turf field, featured in a four-minute video on Penn College’s YouTube channel, highlights Penn College’s enhanced athletic complex, which now includes an entranceway, press box and scoreboard. The additions were made possible through the support of longtime corporate supporters: UPMC Susquehanna, M&T Bank, PepsiCo and Susquehanna Trailways. UPMC Field is home to Penn College’s men’s and women’s soccer teams and, come 2021, the men’s lacrosse intercollegiate program. “It’s amazing. It’s a whole experience just to look at it,” says midfielder Megan A. Bugbee, of Geneseo, New York, enrolled in building science and sustainable design: architectural technology concentration. “Definitely a step up from our old field. And playing on turf is always a fun experience.” Defender Gabriel McKeon, an automotive restoration technology student from Williamsport, adds: “The slicker playing surface, everything is flat and level. There is no skipping with the ball, which not only produces better opportunities, but more beautiful soccer, which is something I personally enjoy.” The Wildcats are members of NCAA Division III and the Northeastern Athletic Conference.
