Most of today will be dry and partly sunny, but carry an umbrella just in case for one more day. Humid. High of 84.

Field Hockey Appears in Top-Four of PSAC Preseason Poll

For the second straight year, Kutztown University field hockey sees its highest ranking in program history, repeating as fourth in the 2022 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference preseason coaches poll, announced Monday by the league office. The Golden Bears, who finished last season at 11-7 overall and 5-5 in the PSAC, tied their highest ranking in the preseason poll since the Eastern and Western Divisions merged in 2013. They have had a top-six ranking every season dating back to 2015. Kutztown is just two seasons removed from a 15-win, 2019 season, which included a PSAC runner-up finish and a trip to the NCAA Division II Final Four.

Men's Rugby Has Three Alumni in the Top 10 of MLR Draft

Kutztown University men's rugby made history once again. Less than three months following its first national championship, KU had three former student-athletes get drafted in the top 10 of the first round in the Major League Rugby (MLR) professional draft last week.
Trent Rogers was selected seventh overall by New Orleans Gold, Kekoa Kauwe had his name called ninth overall by the Utah Warriors and Matt Gelhaus was picked 10th by Rugby Atlanta. 
There were three rounds to the draft with 36 players to be selected for professional rugby. The MLR event was broadcast nationally on FS1 sports.
