Lexy Endres' Free Kick Sinks Gannon 1-0, Golden Bears Advance to Sweet 16
The No. 7 Kutztown University women's soccer team downed No. 3 Gannon 1-0 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Sunday afternoon, sending the Golden Bears to the program's second-ever Atlantic Region final. It was a moment of magic from junior midfielder Lexy Endres that was the difference in the match. Endres stepped up to a free-kick from about 19 yards out and ripped it into the upper left-hand corner, leaving the Golden Knight's goalkeeper motionless as KU took the 1-0 lead and ran with it. The Atlantic Region final is scheduled for noon, Friday, Nov. 18, at the College of Saint Rose, Albany, N.Y.
Low pressure passing to our southeast will bring lowering and thickening clouds today with precipitation beginning later in the afternoon and continuing into the night. Most or all of the precipitation should fall as rain, but 'tis the season for some wintry concerns. Areas not terribly far north of here, near or north of Interstate 78, could actually see some wet snow or sleet mix in for a short while this evening, before changing to all rain. No driving concerns expected unless you’ll be driving north of the area. High today around 45. Low tonight around 35.

Marketing Students Visit EnerSys
Josh Marks and Karissa Vincze, students in Dr. Murshed’s Personal Selling and Sales Management class recently visited EnerSys, one of the world’s largest industrial battery manufacturers. After a welcome breakfast with human resources and the sales team, they did a two-hour shadow which fulfilled the requirements of their class, and then participated in a panel discussion with the sales and marketing teams during lunch. The visit which provided an opportunity to observe unobtrusive interactions between the salespeople and their customers, was arranged by KU alumnus Zach Essig, inside sales manager for EnerSys and a frequent guest speaker in Dr. Murshed’s marketing classes.
