Archery – three All-East Team honorees, 22nd at outdoor nationals.

Men’s cross-country – top 3 UE, two all-conference and UE Rookie of the Year.

Women’s basketball – top 4 UE, one all-conference.

Women’s soccer – top 4 UE, three all-conference.

Men’s lacrosse – top 4 UE, six all-conference.

Academics – 25 new Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society inductees.

“I am extremely proud of our student-athletes, coaches and staff. I believe this season was a big success,” director of athletics Scott Kennell said.

“The department is beginning to see results. Results that will evolve to even bigger success in the future. We have the right coaches and staff in place. The caliber of student-athletes we are recruiting is at its highest level. And I believe moving forward, Penn College will be pushing toward more success in postseason play.”

Also, the athletics programs gave back to the communities in a big way during the 2022-23 academic year. The Wildcats volunteered 2,494½ hours to more than 50 causes and raised $12,907.

“One of the missions of our department is to provide students the opportunity for self-discovery through civic responsibilities,” Kennell said. “It’s important that we recognize that we’re fortunate to have the means and abilities to compete in athletics, and then commit our time, efforts and energies for those that may not be as fortunate.

“Our staff and student-athletes did a fantastic job of giving back to our communities this year.”

Penn College volunteered and raised money for events such as the MLB Classic Tarp Crew, Habitat for Humanity builds, cause events (Vs. Cancer, Coaches vs. Cancer, Pink Out), several Special Olympic events, and several food drives to benefit The Cupboard (Penn College's food pantry), among others.

Last December, it was announced that the United East and Colonial States Athletic Conference had entered into an agreement establishing an intent to merge. Kennell said everything is on track for a fall start.

“With the merger of the two conferences, it will help address the evolving landscape of higher education and stabilize the conference. We are looking forward to joining forces with the CSAC and creating one of the best D-III conferences around,” Kennell said.

A sport-by-sport review of the 2022-23 year (alphabetically):

After three archers earned All-East Team honors in April, three Wildcat teams reached the quarterfinals in the USA Archery Collegiate Target Nationals at Statesboro, Georgia, as Penn College finished 22nd in a field of 49.

In team competition at nationals:

  • Sophomore Matthew Byrnes, of Manahawkin, New Jersey; freshman Emery Gunsallus, of Mill Hall; and sophomore Alex Edwards, of Kutztown, qualified seventh of nine with a score of 2,002 before losing in the quarterfinals to the University of the Cumberlands 234-222 in the men’s compound discipline.
  • Freshman Brady Fowkes, of Mayport; sophomore Jansen Balmer, of Ephrata; and sophomore Grant Walters, of Dover, qualified last in a field of 11 with a 1,466 before being eliminated by Michigan State in the quarterfinals 187-164 in men’s fixed pins.
  • Fowkes and senior Alexis Burrell, of Danville, qualified eighth of 18 with a 1,249 score, drew a bye in the 1/16th round, defeated a team from James Madison University in the 1/8th round 148-129 and then lost in the quarterfinals to the University of the Cumberlands 145-139 in mixed fixed pins.
  • Fowkes was named to the All-American Academic Men’s Fixed Pins Team.

Third-year coach Dustin Bartron said he expects overall experience will help going forward as his team loses just Walters and Burrell.

Season honors
All-East Region Team: Matthew Byrnes (Manahawkin, New Jersey, men’s compound); Alex Edwards (Kutztown, men’s compound); Brady Fowkes (Mayport, men’s fixed pins).

Under coach Chris Howard, the Wildcats made their sixth straight playoff appearance and finished second in the conference for the third time since 2017, posting a 22-20 overall and 16-8 UE mark in all UE games, earning him UE Coach of the Year honors. In 17 years, Howard’s teams have gone 342-244.

Senior Jacob Carles, of Bernville, became the second player in the program’s NCAA era (since 2014) to earn four all-conference selections as he batted .362 for the season and he became the first in program history to record 200 hits.

Also among the team’s statistical leaders were senior Brian Robison, of Quakertown, who batted .400;  junior Chance Webb, of Hughesville, who was 6-2 on the mound, had a 5.73 ERA and struck out 49; sophomore Quinn Hanafin, of Sayre, who batted .376 and had a team-best 17 doubles and 39 RBIs; senior Tyler Rudolph, of Hemlock, New York, who led with 10 home runs; sophomore relief pitcher Zac Weaver, of Pottstown, who was 6-1 with a 6.25 ERA; and senior pitcher Justin Porter, of Fairless Hills, who led with 50 strikeouts and had a 4.38 ERA.

While it was Howard’s first United East Coach of the Year honor, he was named Coach of the Year twice previously during his career – in 2008 and 2009 when the Wildcats competed in the Penn State University Athletic Conference. Over that time, his teams have produced 11 20-win seasons, including four in the NCAA era that began in 2014-15. Penn College won the UE championship in 2015, finished second in 2017, 2018 and this year, and was third in 2022.

Looking to future seasons and championship runs – and what it will take for success – Howard said, “In short, pitching. You can never have enough arms. We will be a young team next year after losing so many to graduation this year, but we have an outstanding ’23 class coming in, together with some really quality returners. I’m really excited about the opportunity to develop this next bunch.”

Final overall: 22-20
Final UE: 16-8 (14-6 regular season)

After his team finished 10-15 overall and 5-11 in the UE, coach Geoff Hensley lauded the progress that included doubling its win total from the year before and its first 10-win season in the NCAA era that began in 2014.

Individually, sophomore Gavin Barrett, of Roselle, New Jersey, led the Wildcats in scoring with 460 points, 143 rebounds, 169 assists and 47 steals.

“We have been young the last two years, playing mostly freshmen and sophomores, so next season, we will finally have a core group of upperclassmen who will be juniors and sophomores with great experience from the last two years,” Hensley said. “We are hoping all this experience will pay off with some big conference wins for us to take our program to the next level. We need one more great off-season and great recruiting class to get over the conference ‘hump’ where we can really be competing for championships the next few years.”

In four seasons, Hensley’s teams have gone 25-74.

A top-four finish in the United East, the winningest campaign since 2014-15 with a 9-8 conference record (9-7 regular season) and 10-16 overall mark, highlighted coach Britni Mohney’s third season after her first two teams went a combined 14-33.

Freshman Lexi Troup, of Huntingdon, led the Wildcats with 249 points, and junior Rachel Teats, of Middleburg, was second in scoring with 245 points and led the team with 173 rebounds, 74 assists and 46 steals.

“The change our student-athletes made in the program, a program that started out 1-11 going into the second half of the season and made United East Playoffs for the first time. That in itself is astounding,” Mohney said. “Our student-athletes never gave up: not on themselves, not on the coaching staff, and not on the team.

“We beat a veteran team (SUNY Morrisville) in regular-season conference play who returned their entire cast who won the United East Conference championship in 2022 and 2023; that alone should give you faith and give you excitement about the future of Penn College basketball.”

CROSS-COUNTRY (men/women)
After a stellar high school track and cross-country coaching career, Tom Leeser came away from his first season at Penn College “optimistic” about both the men’s and women’s teams.

At the conference meet, the Wildcat men finished third among eight teams, with freshmen Mitchell Campbell, of Riegelsville, and Matthew Woolcock, of Oil City, placing third and seventh, respectively. The men’s squad also finished 25 of 32 at the NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic Region race, the highest ever for the program.

Although there weren’t enough women to field a team at the conference meet, senior Skyelar Splain, of Liverpool, a softball player who joined the squad to help fill out the roster, ended 16th individually, just missing the all-conference second team by two spots, and she was the team’s top finisher at regionals.

“It’s a great group of kids. They have good attitudes; they work hard. They enjoy being together, and all of those intangible things have been positive. If we can keep adding a little bit of talent every year, I think we have something good started. I’m optimistic,” Leeser said.

UE first team: Mitchell Campbell (Riegelsville), Matthew Woolcock (Oil City).

During the fall season, the Rocket League team finished 5-4 (1-1 in the playoffs), Overwatch 2 was 5-4 (1-1), Valorant was 3-4 (0-1), League of Legends was 1-4 and CS:GO was 0-7.

In the spring season, Rocket League Varsity was 0-6, NACE Overwatch 2 was 0-7 and NACE Valorant was 0-6.

“Our iRacing drivers of juniors Austin DeLong, of Pittsburgh, and Michael Sydor, of Reading, had some great performances with consistent top five and top 10 finishes in the Collegiate iRacing League,” coach Joshua Young said, adding, “The good news is that most of our starting rosters will return for our six team sports in the fall.”

Rob Lytle came into his first full season as the coach with a goal of keeping the Wildcats among the conference’s elite teams.

He delivered, as his squad claimed three firsts, three seconds and one third-place finish in 11 multi-team events that included winning the UE championship and earning Lytle Coach of the Year honors. The title also gave the team an automatic berth in the NCAA Division III Championship, where it finished 37th in an elite 43-team field that represented the best of 304 D-III men’s teams from across the country.

A key piece of the team’s success was the addition of sophomore Peyton Mussina, of Montoursville, who transferred from Averett University and led the team with a 75.3 per 18-hole round scoring average. Mussina medaled twice during the fall and spring seasons and finished second twice.

Sophomore Will Orwig, of Mifflintown, was second in scoring average at 79.6, followed by sophomore Gavin Baer, of Bainbridge,  and junior Trevor Keaton, of Worcester, both at 81.8, and freshman Gunner Redmond, of Lock Haven, at 83.1.

And the good news: They all return in the fall.

Commenting on the team’s season, Lytle said, “This was a great, great tune-up because I believe we’ll be doing this again, year after year after year.

“I promised the college that I would take the golf team to the next level, and that’s what I want to do.

“I get some great kids that come to Penn College for some great majors. They’re HVAC, and construction management, and manufacturing technology; it’s really cool. They’re not coming to Penn College to play golf, they’re coming to Penn College for a really good education, and they can play golf. I’ve got a great group of kids. They are students first and athletes second, and that’s what I appreciate about it.

“It’s been an awesome experience coaching college golf. I want to continue the success. I didn’t come in to be average, I came in to take this program to the next level, and that’s going to be my driving goal going forward.”

UE first team: Peyton Mussina (Montoursville).
UE second team: Gunner Redmond (Lock Haven), Will Orwig (Mifflintown).

In its third season under coach Jordan Williams, Penn College qualified for the UE playoffs for the third time and finished among the top four after going 3-3 in all conference games while setting a single-season win record going 11-7 overall as Williams’ career record improved to 24-17.

Among the statistical leaders for the Wildcats were sophomore Sam Hills, of Maynard, Massachusetts, who had 37 goals and 20 assists; junior Quinn Caviola, of Ridgefield, Connecticut, who had 24 goals and 23 assists; and freshman Camden Elmo, of Hanover, who had 28 goals and 16 assists. In the goal, sophomore James (JJ) Cella, of Cape May, New Jersey, made 184 saves and owned a 10-6 record.

“We have a ton to be proud of as we look back on the year, reflect on the season and move forward into our third full season as a program,” Williams said. “We return a great core group of players, have an incoming class ready to make a splash and we are fired up for the opportunity to continue to build this program on and off the field.

“We look forward to the opportunities in front of us and the opportunity for our guys to show that it is cool to care about Penn College lacrosse.”

SOCCER (men)
With a young team building for the future, coach Tyler Mensch, despite what he called some on-field inconsistency, saw improvement in his team’s record (5-10-3 overall, 3-4-1 UE) from the previous season and noted that it narrowly missed a top-four finish and playoff berth.

Individually, sophomore Dylan Dailey, of East Stroudsburg, scored four goals and junior Tad Shellenberger, of Port Royal, added three. Sophomore Cole Catherman, of Selinsgrove, started 11 matches in goal and had 2.09 goals against average, while senior Braeden Eckard, of Danville, started seven matches and finished with 1.89 GAA.

Looking ahead, the coach, whose record in seven seasons is 37-82-16, said, “We have a good nucleus of returners and now we need to get a bit more selective in terms of who we are recruiting. With our defense set for the next two years, we will really be looking to add dynamic attacking players who have a knack for the goal.”

SOCCER (women)
In Ian Scheller’s first season as coach, the Wildcats went 9-9-1 overall, 6-3 in the UE and reached the conference semifinals.

“This has exceeded my expectations beyond anything. … In year one, if you had told me that we would make the semifinal and be competitive against the team that won the conference last year, I would definitely have taken that,” Scheller said.

Junior Kaelynn Sheetz, of Elizabethtown, led the team in scoring with 21 goals and eight assists; sophomore Sara Darlington, of West Chester, had 12 goals and eight assists; and sophomore Cassie Johnson, of Richland, had a conference-high 13 assists and became the first Penn College player in modern program history (since 2014) in the 10/10 club as she also netted 10 goals.

“One thing I keep hearing is the excitement for the future. They are as excited as I am because we understand that with the amount of talent that we are bringing back next year that this is just the steppingstone for us; this is just where we’re starting,” Scheller said. “I can’t think of a better way to build off than this moment right here, getting some playoff experience and doing it on a very high level against some very, very great teams.”

During a season that saw the team win a program-record 31 games (against 10 losses), Penn College captured the UE regular-season title with a 20-4 record but fell short in the conference playoffs as it went 1-2 and finished third.

Although the Wildcats didn’t reach their ultimate goal in the UE, an invitation to the ECAC D-III Championship gave them one more shot, and they came through with the crown in their fourth season under coach Angela Stackhouse, whose career record now is 83-28.

“The body of work this team put together this season is record-breaking and incredible – so many big-time moments. We witnessed athletes reaching 100 hits, 100 steals, no-hitters, perfect games, 300 career strikeouts, and the list goes on,” Stackhouse said.

“Next season, we will certainly have some big shoes to fill. I am confident with the experience the underclassman got this season; they will have a full understanding of what it takes at this level. I look forward to continuing the success we seem to build upon each year,” Stackhouse said.

Statistical leaders included sophomore pitcher Mackenzie Weaver, of Montoursville, who went 18-6 with two saves – including 11 solo shutouts and combining on another – and a 0.86 ERA while also hitting at a .352 clip; senior Jordan Specht, of Frederick, Maryland, who batted .458 with 17 doubles, five home runs and 46 RBIs; senior Maddie Hurst, of Mechanicsburg, who batted .441 with 17 doubles, 50 runs scored and 47 of 50 stolen bases; junior Ivvy Morder, who batted .347; and Lexi Snyder, of Hegins, who batted .344.

TENNIS (men/women)
The men’s team finished 2-8 overall, 1-5 in the UE, and the women were 2-9 overall, 0-5 in the conference.

For the men, freshman Logan Ogden, of South Williamsport, went 8-1 at No. 5 singles, while freshman Kyle Shuler, of Williamsport, was 5-5 at No. 2 singles; and sophomore Paul Langbein, of Carnegie, was 4-6 at No. 1 singles. In doubles, senior Jesse Kight, of Williamsport, and senior Zack Burkhart, of Milton, were 2-1, while Langbein-Kight and Langbein-Shuler were both 2-2.

Freshman Lauren Peck, of South Williamsport, led the women’s squad with a 3-4 record at No. 2 singles, and in all doubles matches freshman Emma Fox, of Myerstown, and junior Georgia Macensky, of Wellsboro, both had two wins.

“It was a good year for our tennis players,” interim coach Britni Mohney said. “With so many first-year players coming in and out of the order, the team was able to adapt well and compete at the highest level throughout the spring. The players worked hard to push themselves daily, creating some memorable matches against their opponents.
“We lose some important pieces to the puzzle after graduation but are excited to see what next season holds.”

Although the team won only two of 21 matches – its most wins since 2017 – and went winless in eight UE outings, coach Carolyn McKeon saw player bonding and team growth take place during her second season and she pointed to some unexpected on-court success with close games and sets won against conference leaders Penn State Harrisburg and St. Mary’s (Md.) College.

Three players, junior Cheyenne Stein, of Orwigsburg; freshman Brooke Simmons, of Waterford; and junior Coryn Oswald, of Langhorne, cracked the UE top 10 in several statistical categories.

McKeon, whose teams have gone 3-35, said she looks to continue to build the program in both numbers and strength through recruitment and an active social media presence.

Women’s volleyball
Final UE: 0-8
Final overall: 2-19

Postseason honor
UE All-Sportsmanship Team: Christine Limbert (Curwensville).

When reflecting on the team’s season, the individual accomplishments of freshman Isaac Cory stand out. But there was much more during its 11-10 dual-match campaign and results in bouts against eight of the top 25 teams in NCAA Division III and multiple top 15 individuals under first-time head coach Pankil Chander, including:

  • First tournament title
  • First conference medalists
  • First time with two top-five tournament team finishes in one season
  • First time with six medalists in a single tournament
  • First time a wrestler garnered a national ranking and a Top 10
  • First Wilkes Open medalist
  • First win over conference contender SUNY Oneonta
  • First winning dual record (in the NCAA era).

After the regular season ended, Cory placed second in the 184-pound weight class at the D-III Mideast Regional and became the first Wildcat wrestler in school history dating to 1968 to qualify for a national championship, while junior Noah Hunt, of Muncy, at 141 and senior Ryan Berstler, of Middletown, at 125, also claimed All-Region honors as Hunt placed sixth and Berstler seventh. As a team, the Wildcats finished 11th of 21, tying the college’s previous highest finish in 2019.

At nationals, Cory, the lone freshman in his weight class, went 1-2 to close out an 18-4 season, finishing among the top 16 at 184 in D-III, and earn the program’s first team point at the national event, tying it for 52nd in a 71-team field.

“Overall, we grew in various ways as a contingent,” Chander said. “(We have) higher belief in oneself and their teammates, consistent accountability, a more competitive training environment, stronger performances, and most importantly, we learned how to be resilient amid adversity.

“We hit performance milestones – first winning dual season (in the NCAA era), two top-five tournament team finishes, multiple individual tournament titles, first NCAA berth, strong team GPA, largest home crowd in program history, organically tripled our following on social media. There is a lot to be proud of.

“We’re only just beginning to realize how competitive we can be as a young team and program.

“The future is bright!”
