This Week in Penn State Sports

student_central_bannerFootball

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.
