Celebrate Senior Night With Women’s Soccer
It’s difficult to define a dynasty, but no one can argue that the Penn State Women’s Soccer program hasn’t reached that level of greatness. With a conference-record fourteen consecutive Big Ten titles, you could even make the case that these ladies are the most successful athletic team on campus. That being said, it is always a bittersweet moment when a part of that dynasty must move on after their four years are over.
The twelfth-ranked Women’s Soccer team will celebrate senior night tonight as the team looks for its thirteenth consecutive victory during a 7 p.m. match against Purdue at Jeffrey Field. Meghan Gill, Carly Niness, Jess Rosenbluth, Ali Schaefer, Emma Thomson, and Krissy Tribbett will say goodbye to Nittany Nation with festivities beginning at 6:45. These six seniors have seen four conference championships and fifty-three victories over the past four seasons, making them one of the most successful classes in Penn State history.
As usual, the Park Avenue Army student section will be providing free tailgate food in the parking lot before the game. The Big Ten championship trophy will also be on display tomorrow night throughout the match, and fans will be able to pose with it underneath the East stands. Come out before your Halloween weekend festivities begin and show the girls some support as they close out the regular season and begin the conference tournament, and eventually, make a run at a National Championship.
