The Penn State New Kensington softball team, ranked 13th nationally in the United State Collegiate Athletic Association’s preseason poll,  begins its 2013 home schedule at noon, Sunday, March 24, with a non-conference doubleheader against Westmoreland County Community College 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 five years. The softball team's original season opener on March 19 at Carlow University was canceled because of weather. A make-up date has not been scheduled. Coach Mike Marsili’s squad will open the season on the road at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 23, with a non-conference doubleheader against Chatham University in Pittsburgh.

The New Kensington Lady Lions, fresh from a preseason trip to Florida, continue a four-game home stand on Wednesday, March 27, with a 3 p.m. non-conference doubleheader against Point Park University.
