Eric J. Schall Leonard C. Nicholas Eric J. Schall, a graduate of Jersey Shore Area High School, and Leonard C. Nicholas, a graduate of Abington High School, have been named Penn College's "co-Student-Athletes of the Week" for Oct. 5-12. Schall is a sophomore plastics and polymer engineering technology major and Nicholas a senior construction management major. They were instrumental in leading the college golf team to its sixth straight conference championship and, by virtue of their top five individual finishes (Schall was second and Nicholas third) they were awarded All-Penn State University Athletic Conference and All-American honors. They became the first two Penn College athletes, outside of archery, to claim All-American status. Penn College ended its season with an 18-1-1 record. Over the past six seasons, it is 166-1-1. Each Monday, coaches who are in season nominate a student-athlete from their team. Nominees then are evaluated by college athletic office personnel, who select the student-athlete of the week.
