VARSITY `S' CLUB CHALLENGE
Penn State men's lacrosse alums are also reminded of the Varsity `S' Club Challenge for the 2012-13 fiscal year (July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013). The challenge will enable former student-athletes to have the opportunity to provide their varsity team with two $6,000 prizes.
The two ways in which the challenge can be won are: 1) to be the sport with the highest percentage of former student-athletes giving to Penn State Athletics or 2) to be the sport with the highest percentage increase in giving from former student-athletes compared to the 2011-2012 academic year to Penn State Athletics.
All 31 current varsity sports and their former student-athletes will be included in the challenge. The spirited challenge provides an avenue for each team to compete against each other to see who can show the most support to its program throughout the year.
