Three Penn College Sports Teams See Action

All three Pennsylvania College of Technology winter sports teams were in action last week.

Men’s Basketball
Squaring off Friday against crosstown rival Lycoming College in the Dutch Burch Tip-Off Tournament, Penn College put up a good fight in a 94-77 loss. The Wildcats fell behind 13-0 at the onset, but battled back to within 27-24 before Lycoming pulled away. For Penn College, Vincent Mauch, of Philadelphia, made five of seven 3-point goals in a 15-point performance; Bryce Lonsway, of Tiffin, Ohio, scored 13 points; Chris Johnson, of Lorton, Va., tallied 11; and Marquis Delgado, of Mansfield, scored 10. All four are freshmen.

In Saturday’s consolation game, the Wildcats fell to Penn State Brandywine, 85-73, to drop to 0-2 despite a 17-point effort from Lonsway, who was named to the All-Tournament Team. Penn College led 42-41 at the half and continued to lead through much of the second half until an 11-1 Brandywine run turned the tide. Delgado added 11 points and five assists for the Wildcats and Johnson scored 10 points.

On Monday night, Penn College travels to Mansfield University for a 7:30 game.

Women’s Basketball
In their season-opener against Briarcliff (N.Y.) College Saturday in the Albany College of Pharmacy Panther Tip-Off Tournament, the Lady Wildcats fell, 73-31. Danielle Mowery, of Shamokin, led Penn College with seven points and 12 rebounds.

Facing the University of Maine Augusta in Sunday’s consolation game,  Penn College dropped to 0-2 with a 96-50 loss. Mowery scored 20 points and Neisha Williams, of Loyalsock Township, added 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Wrestling
Competing in its first Penn State University Athletic Conference match of the season on Tuesday, Penn College dropped a 27-19 decision at Penn State DuBois. Troy Leid, of Terre Hill, won by pin at 157 and Taylor Porter, of Milton, scored a major decision at 165 for the Wildcats.

A scheduled home match Saturday against Muhlenberg became an exhibition when the visitors brought just four wrestlers. Neither the match nor the individual results will count, according to college officials. The Wildcats now are idle until Dec. 1, when they travel to the Lock Haven University Mat Town Open.
