Student Athletes Tweet Support For THON

A grand total of ten student-athletes are dancing in this year’s THON, representing six different varsity sports.

Natalie Buttinger (field hockey), Maggie Harding (women’s volleyball), Christian Kaschak (men’s soccer) and Erin Kehoe (women’s soccer) will be on the floor for the 46, along with Lionettes’ Nicole Williams and Elise Potter and Penn State Cheer squad members Eugene Bodden, Kali Fleckenstein, Carrie Tedesco and Ally Zimmerman.

While only a select few were slated to participate in this weekend festivities, many student-athletes took to Twitter to voice their support for THON, Penn State, and offer their teammates words of encouragement.

Here’s what some Nittany Lions had to say.
