This Week in Penn State Sports

While its not quite news straight off the gridiron, the “greatest student section in the country” will have to purchase its season tickets a little differently this year.  A website called “Student Central” has been created as an extension of gopsusports.com, the official site of Penn State athletics.  Mandatory pre-registration for returning undergraduate and graduate students begins May 27th at 8:00 AM and end on May 31st at 5:00 PM.  (Note:  Ticket sales for sophomores and upperclassmen run from June 22nd to June 24th at 7:00 AM. – Ouch…)

Track

Head Coach Beth Alford-Sullivan, director and head coach of the track and field and cross country teams, was honored this week as the Big Ten Women’s Coach of the Year.  PSU won its second-consecutive Big Ten outdoor track and field championship this past weekend.  Shavon Greaves, simply put, was a beast, notching titles in the 100 and 200.  However, it was the senior, Emma Schmelzer, who was named the Co-Athlete of the Championship for her top-five finishes in the hammer (2nd), shot put (4th), and discus (2nd).  39 Lions will compete in the NCAA Regional Championships on May 29-30 in Greensboro, N.C.

Baseball

The baseball team nabbed a 10-8 win over No. 21 Minnesota this past weekend, thwarting the Gophers’ push for the Big Ten regular season crown.  Sophomore Bobby Jacobs secured the win for Nitts with a double in the bottom of the sixth.  Though a spot in the Big Ten Championships eluded the Lions, congratulations go out to the ten graduating seniors on the team for their careers at Dear Old State.

Paternoville Preview

Paperless tickets? A spread offense at Linebacker U? Indeed, times are a changin’ in the Valley.
