Penn State find another gear...

After a slow and disappointing start to the regular season of the NCPA, Penn State was looking to come back strong and finish out the remainder of the conference schedule with some solid victories. With less than two weeks until the college paintball National Championship, the Nittany Lions wasted no time doing just that. The weekend long event held at Pittsburgh Paintball Sports Complex on April 2nd and 3rd was exactly what Penn State was looking for as they went 6-0 on the weekend, beating The University of Pittsburgh Panthers, Ohio University Bobcats and the West Virginia University Mountaineers twice each. The successful event for Penn State gives them a 6-3 record on the season, the same as Pitt, but the greater point margin puts the Nittany Lions on top, leading the conference. According to Sophomore Andrew Hanlon, the turnaround performance can be attributed to “the return of our full team, continued hard work and practice, and the performance, reliability, and durability of our Planet Eclipse markers and gear.”

Despite some traditional Western Pennsylvania rain and cold weather, the event as a whole went off smoothly. All teams in attendance played hard and showed tremendous amounts of sportsmanship. The level of competition in the Ohio Valley Conference is at an all time high and good things are expected from all teams come NCPA Nationals on April 15th-17th in Lakeland, Florida.
