Cross Country

The women’s cross country team made a significant stride forward over the course of the season. Perhaps no event highlighted the group’s overall progress more than the CSAC Championship when the Crimson Eagles finished fourth out of the 11-team field. It signals their best finish ever during the championship race as the squad narrowly missed securing the bronze medal by only a handful of points. Sophomore Ellen Squire paced the women by placing fourth overall during the meet.

Men’s Soccer

(6-10-3) In what has turned into somewhat of an annual tradition, the men’s soccer team saved their best work for the home stretch of the season. After going just 2-7-1 to kick off the year, the Crimson Eagles rallied behind first-year coach Scott Fogarty, finishing 5-3-1 during the back end of play. The team captured their fourth NCCAA East Region Title in the last five years after sneaking past Lancaster Bible College during a drama-induced game that saw PBU eventually triumph following a penalty kick shootout. At press time, the team is currently preparing for the annual NCCAA National Tournament held in Kissimmee, Florida.

Women’s Soccer

(5-14) Beginning the year 1-9, the women’s soccer team struggled to prevail in close contests, going just 1-4 over the span in games decided by a single goal. However, under the sideline leadership of first-year head coach Dewey Landon, the Crimson Eagles pulled together down the stretch and posted a 4-4 record to close out the season. A 1-0 loss in the NCCAA East Region semifinals to Lancaster Bible College proved to be the dagger that ended PBU’s year. Nevertheless, the Crimson Eagles’ 4-6 mark in CSAC play stands as the team’s greatest number of league wins since the program joined the conference three years ago.

Women’s Tennis

(7-7) It was a breakout season for the women’s tennis team as the Crimson Eagles produced more wins on the year than the three previous campaigns combined. Posting an impressive 5-3 home record, the group collected the most wins in a single season since 2002 and managed a respectable 5-5 mark within conference play. Manufacturing a 4-2 record at the close of the regular season, PBU’s push for a CSAC postseason berth fell just short as the Crimson Eagles finished the year sixth overall within the league standings.

Women’s Volleyball

(16-15) Following the graduation of a couple of All-Conference performers from a year ago, the women’s volleyball team was tasked with finding several key replacements heading into the current campaign. Although unable to produce their fourth straight 20-win season, the Crimson Eagles nevertheless bucked expectations by going 7-4 in CSAC play, a mark good enough to advance the group into the league postseason tournament. Playing in the conference playoffs as the fifth seed, the volleyball team saw their season come to a close during a 3-1 loss to Marywood University in the opening round.
