A grand total of ten student-athletes are dancing in this year’s THON, representing six different varsity sports.

Natalie Buttinger (field hockey), Maggie Harding (women’s volleyball), Christian Kaschak (men’s soccer) and Erin Kehoe (women’s soccer) will be on the floor for the 46, along with Lionettes’ Nicole Williams and Elise Potter and Penn State Cheer squad members Eugene Bodden, Kali Fleckenstein, Carrie Tedesco and Ally Zimmerman.
