Lion's Share: Week In Review/Preview 9/14

The start of conference play is upon us for many sports, with others set to begin in the coming week. Can Brandywine continue to their championship streak from 2017-18 (where they won 7!!! PSUAC Championships) into 2018-19? Only time will tell, and we get into the meat of PSUAC play beginning next week.

  • As usual, we named our PSUAC Players of the Week for outstanding play on the pitch, court and course. Your honorees for the week can be found here.
  • In case you didn't see our release earlier in the week, the Penn State DuBois baseball team will be honored during the second quarter of the Penn State-Kent State football game on Saturday. The recognition is to commemorate their run to the 2018 USCAA Small College World Series title in May. While you likely won't be able to see the ceremony on TV (they usually do them during commercial breaks or in between quarters), you can see it live and in person if you're in the stadium. 
  • Several PSUAC men's soccer teams battled several NCAA Division III programs over the past week, including a 2-0 win for Brandywine over Immaculata.  Conference begins next Wednesday as eight schools kick-off their hopes for a conference title. The remaining two start conference play next Saturday.
  • A quiet week for women's soccer as only four games were scheduled for the past week. Play picks up in earnest this weekend through next week as conference play kicks off on Wednesday and everyone gets in on the action on Saturday. 
  • PSUAC play is in full swing for women's volleyball as 10 teams saw action Thursday night. York, Scranton, Brandywine, DuBois and Mont Alto each got one in the win column. Twelve of the 13 teams will be in action this weekend, with Wilkes-Barre the only team with rest until Tuesday.
    • Brandywine currently has an 18-game conference winning streak it looks to extend in 2018.
  • Brandywine's Brian Abel continues to impress in his freshman season, setting an 8K team record last Saturday at the Dutchmen Invitational. His time of 28:02 was 56 seconds better than the previous team record.
  • Kensey Knapp captured low female medalist honors at last week's PSUAC White Course Invitational, finishing 20th overall out of nearly 60 golfers. Knapp posted an 85 during a rain-delayed round.

Games to watch this week:

ALL OF THEM!

As Dick Vitale might say, IT'S CONFERENCE TIME, BABY!
