Women’s Soccer Unveils New National Championship Crest
Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions are seven months removed from hoisting the program’s first National Championship after defeating Duke 1-0 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. Penn State gave fans a taste of what’s to come by unveiling a crisp new crest on Friday that it will wear this coming season in pursuit of back-to-back titles.

The crest features the classic “block S” logo in the center, while the all-important championship star sits atop the shield; much like the three worn by Penn State alums and 2015 World Cup champs Ali Krieger and Alyssa Naeher with the U.S. Women’s National Team. If the first impression of the crest is any indication, the Nittany Lions’ new kits should be pretty slick as well. Hats off to the design team on this one (if they’re looking for a second job, we have a logo in mind that could use a facelift).
Penn State returns to Jeffrey Field on Friday, Aug. 19 for a season-opening rematch of its 2-0 Elite Eight victory over West Virginia. Make sure to come out and support the Nittany Lions as they begin their title defense. You can look back on the team’s magical run with our season recap in anticipation of what’s to come this fall.
