Penn State Fight Night

Next month, the Penn State Boxing Team will be hosting a 6-team, 15-fight boxing show in the White Building gym. We all know the first rule of Fight Club, but boxing was the number one varsity sport at PSU  from 1923-1954, so they’re worth talking about. When the NCAA removed its sanction of boxing, Penn State made it a club sport through the National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA), which 24 colleges and universities belong to.

Competing against the dear ol’ blue and white are the brave schools of WVU, Maryland, Georgetown, Lock Haven University, and IUP. But, if you ask me (or probably anyone on campus), none of them stand a chance. Penn State is the best and longest established of the teams.

The under-recognized and under-funded WVU team has come a long way in a short time. G-town is making a name for its relatively young tribe, which began in 2008 with only 7 members. MD is probably one of the more senior members of the group; the club was created in 2004 after a nearly fifty year break. Both IUP and LHU clubs are devoted to safe, disciplined boxing to help students with their health and social lives.

So come support the twelve Nittany Lion fighters February 6th at 6PM in the White Building, and watch us add another sporting win to the long list!
