This Week in Penn State Sports

Now that the N.I.T. madness has died down, baseball has retook its spot as the season’s most popular sport.

Baseball

On Wednesday, the Penn State baseball team defeated Bucknell 12-11 in a tight game. Freshman Jordan Steranka drove in the game-winning run with a walk-off single in the eighth inning. The diaper-dandy third baseman also went 4-4 from the plate, including 3 RBI’s and a triple. Last weekend, the Lions won two out of three games in an away series against the Michigan Wolverines, the defending Big Ten champs. The team hopes to add to this winning momentum as they take on Big Ten foe Purdue this weekend in a three game series at Medlar Field.

Softball

The softball team is set to take on Wisconsin this Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. Penn State is supporting the Pink Zone to raise money for breast cancer research. The first 200 fans at the game will be given a field t-shirt. Get yourself out to the ballgame this week to support a great cause.

Volleyball

Men’s volleyball travels to Princeton and George Mason this weekend to complete the last leg of their conference regular season. The defending national champions boast at 21 – 3 record and a #7 national ranking. The match will be play in support of the Dig Pink initiative for breast cancer research and awareness. It will be the first ever Dig Pink Men’s match.

Football

On a side note, “The Penn State Football Story” was awarded its sixth regional Emmy Award in eleven years in the “Outstanding Sports Programs Series” category. A special thanks goes out to Guy Junker for lending his amazing voice to the glorious moments of Penn State football.
