Tournaments:

  • LEC Tournament – Oct. 15, 17 & 19

Looking Back:

  • PSU went 11-2 overall last fall, the second most wins in program history, and posted an 8-1 record in the LEC to claim the second seed for the LEC Tournament. The Panthers held off Salem State, 5-4, to advance to the championship match where they fell to top-seeded Rhode Island College.

LEC Notes:
