Softball opens season at home March 31
LADY LIONS HOST PENN STATE SCRANTON
1:00 p.m., Saturday, March 31,
Wolf Pack Park, Lower Burrell, Pa.
The Penn State New Kensington softball team opens the 2012 season at home at 1 p.m., Saturday, March 31, with a conference doubleheader against Penn State Scranton at Wolf Pack Park in Lower Burrell. The field, located at the intersection of Wild Life Lodge and Garvers Ferry roads, has served as home to the softball team the past four years.
Eerily reminiscent of last year’s truncated season due to numerous weather-related cancellations, the New Kensington Lady Lions' original season opener on March 24 at Chatham University was canceled because of rain. A make-up date has not been scheduled. A year ago, coach Mike Marsilli’s team played only 12 of 20 games.
The New Kensington Lady Lions travel to Monaca, Pa., on Tuesday, April 3, for a 2 p.m. Penn State University Athletic Conference doubleheader at Penn State Beaver. Marsili’s squad begins a 12-game homestand with a 3 p.m. doubleheader on Thursday, April 5, against Carlow College at Wolf Pack Park.
