2020 Spring Preview - Men

The Spring Season is underway, and it is a busy time for the team. We have been in a good pre-season training regimen since returning from Winter Break as we prepare for our first contest; 21 March at Army. We will host our annual Winter Clinic 22-23 February and members of the team will take part in THON that weekend as we show our support for Logan and the rest of the families in their battles with Childhood Cancer.

We are very excited to welcome Luke Lewis to town. Luke joins us from Florida where he recently completed his Masters in Exercise Science at FAU. Luke hails from Wales and spent time as a Regional Rugby Development Officer while there. After moving to America Luke has been involved with American Top Team (MMA and BJJ gym and team), The Dragons Lair (Performance Gym training pro-athletes and 7x Mr. Olympia Flex Lewis) and Team Corbs (Alex Corbisiero’s rugby consultancy business). Not only does Luke bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with Rugby, but his background in Strength and Conditioning is a huge added value to the teams.

Women's Spring Opener

The Nittany Lions saw major growth this past weekend at their spring opener in Washington, D.C.. The team stepped up and showed tremendous improvement since the fall. 

Saturday's first game resulted in a 26-0 loss to the Capital Selects - a women's mid-atlantic all-star team based out of D.C..  Being the first game back, it took a couple hits for the Nittany Lions to get back into the swing of things. This match was followed by close loss of 17-7 to USA South, another women's all-star team based out of Atlanta, GA. In this game, the Nittany Lions tweaked their mistakes from their first match overall and played a better game.
