Press release by PSU DuBois Athletic Dept.
DuBOIS – The Penn State DuBois Baseball Team, champions of the 2018 USCAA Small College World Series, will be recognized for their success during a Penn State football game on All U Day at Beaver Stadium. The team will be honored during the second quarter of the game versus Kent State, set to begin at Noon on September 15.
DuBois won the Small College World Series on May 17, at Showers Field in DuBois, where the team also hosted the tournament. DuBois now holds the distinction of being only the second team in any sport in the Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC) to bring home a USCAA national championship. The first was the 2015 Penn State Beaver women’s basketball team.
The baseball program at Penn State DuBois was resurrected in 2015, having been eliminated from campus athletic program offerings due to budget reasons in the 1990s. In those three short years, the team has made two appearances in the USCAA championship, claiming the title this year.
The Penn State DuBois Nittany Lions ended their winning regular season 31-11, and claimed a 17-1 conference record in the PSUAC. They were 4-1 in the Small College World Series.
