The men's soccer team is coming off a great 1-0 win over #10 Indiana. The effort included a goal in the second half by Robby Sagel and an amazing first half save on a penalty kick by Matt Bersano. For his efforts, Bersano was named to the College Soccer News National team of the week and also the TopDrawerSoccer team of the week. The men's soccer team (3-1-1) will travel to Columbus, Ohio to take on the Ohio State University on Saturday at 3 p.m.

The women's soccer team had a great weekend in California, grabbing shutout wins versus #2 Stanford and Santa Clara. As a result red-shirt sophomore defender Brittany Basinger was named to the team of the week. Three other PSU players garnered Big Ten weekly honors. On Thursday at 7 p.m. the Lions will host Wisconsin to open the Big Ten season. The game will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network. On Sunday the team will host Minnesota at 1 p.m.

Women's Volleyball

Russ Rose's squad earned the Golden Dome Invitational title last weekend. With a win against Eastern Kentucky on Friday and another versus Mississippi State on Saturday afternoon, the team lined up a battle with Notre Dame on Saturday night. The Lions were able to handle Notre Dame relatively comfortably for the tournament title. Freshmen libero Keeton Holcomb had 20 digs in each of the final two matches of the tournament. Megan Courtney put in a balanced effort over the weekend, including a dominating 15 dig, 14 kill performance in the win over Notre Dame. Courtney was named the tournament MVP while Ali Frantti and Bryanna Weiskircher were honored for Penn State as well.

This weekend #1 PSU (8-0) will travel to Tampa, Florida for the South Florida Invitational. Facing off with Auburn on Friday night the team will strive to continue to improve each day. With a 1 p.m. match versus  St. John's on Saturday afternoon and another with South Florida Saturday night, the Lady Lions hope to complete the non-conference schedule with a perfect 11-0 recored. SWH will be in attendance for the tournament because we go where the news goes. That's what we do. If we have to go all the way to Tampa to cover this team, that's what is going to happen.

The Big Ten schedule will begin a week from today in University Park when the #11 Badgers and Lions compete in a match that will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network at 7 p.m.


There was a great interview with incoming 21 year old freshmen goalie Chris Funkey last week. Funkey appears to be a great replacement for the graduated PJ Musico. Teaming up with Matthew Skoff and Eamon McAdam, Funkey will add depth to an already strong position.

There are only 19 days until the puck will drop for the first time inside of the Pegula Ice Arena. Last season Eric Scheid wore #19, this year he will wear #23 in honor of his father.

PSU linebacker Ben Kline was named to the Good Works Team. Penn State received two awards for materials research. Jan Bortner is retiring from the PSU athletics department after 35 years of great memories.


The news in trampoline sports is slow this time of year, which is expected since this is the off-season. That didn't stop a group of ambitious PSU students from installing a trampoline inside their dorm. Rumor has it that the group is practicing for the triple lindy, a dive that has not been repeated since Rodney Dangerfield pulled it off twenty-nine years ago. One thing is for sure, the group had better hope that Professor Turgeson doesn't find out about their antics.
