Penn State Update - 5/23/2009

  • The baseball team ended their season on a high note by defeating Minnesota 10-8 last Saturday, preventing the Golden Gophers from winning the regular season Big Ten title. With the win the Nittany Lions finished 25-26 overall with a record in Big Ten play of 8-16. The team finished 8th in the conference. Only the top six make the Big Ten Tournament. Ohio State won the regular season title.
  • The men's golf team entered the final day of play at their NCAA Regional in 10th place, needing to improve to fifth to play for the NCAA Championship. They finished Saturday in the same position they started - 10th. The golfers showed great improvement over the three days but a terrible first round doomed them. The team totaled 319, 301, and 290 strokes and missed out on a finals berth by 20 strokes.
  • The women's track team won their second straight Big Ten outdoor track and field title, edging out Michigan by 0.25 points. Sophomore Shavon Greaves took home two individual Big Ten titles, winning the 100 and 200 meter races. The track and field teams will have off this weekend before sending their qualifying teams and individuals to Greensboro, NC for the NCAA East Regional Championships on May 29th and 30th.
