Penn State Champs Go to White House

On Monday, the Penn State women’s volleyball, men’s fencing, and women’s fencing teams were at the White House for a ceremony honoring NCAA National Champions.

The Penn State athletes were among about 30 teams that won national championships in 2009. President Barack Obama gave a speech, while several members of Congress were also in attendance to meet with the students.
