Under the lights … and on new home turf!


The Wildcat women’s and men’s soccer teams held their home openers this past week on UPMC Field, Penn College’s new synthetic-turf facility on the west side of campus. The women kicked off the Fall 2019 season against King’s College on Friday night; the men followed Tuesday evening against Keystone College. Watch for more photos of the new field later this semester, including Homecoming and Parent & Family Weekend (Oct. 4-6).
