Big weekend wins for Penn athletics; more tournament play ahead!


October 10th was a great day for Penn athletics! The boys and the girls soccer teams clinched sectional championships that day, while at cross country sectionals, girls finished in first place and boys in second. Both soccer teams and both XC squads now advance to regionals. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In varsity soccer, the boys defeated South Bend Adams, 3-0, to take their fifth consecutive sectional title. Led by Coach Josh Nakayama, they will face St. Joe at the South Bend Riley Regional Semifinal, Thursday October 15, at 7 p.m.  A win on Thursday puts them in the championship match, Saturday the 17th at 7 p.m.

Later that day in a match played at Penn, the girls soccer team repeated the feat, with a 4-0 win, also over South Bend Adams. Currently undefeated, and coached by Jeff Hart, the girls will next face Culver Academy at the Goshen Regional Wednesday, October 14, at 5 p.m.  A win on Wednesday will lead to the regional championship match, Saturday at Goshen at 2 p.m.

 

 

The boys cross country team placed #2 in the Sectional and they will
advance to the Ox Bow Regional on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10:30 a.m.
Tom Miller coaches these runners. The girls cross country team also
won their Sectional Championship, so they too advance to the Ox Bow
Regional on Saturday, Oct. 17, with an 11:15 a.m. start.  Michael
Clements coaches the girls.
More good news, this on the tennis courts: Penn’s #1 doubles team,
Tim Porsche and Thomas Gifford won on Saturday.
 The duo now
