University Park, Pa. - The No. 46 Penn State women's tennis team (9-4, 1-1) hosted a tennis clinic for Special Olympic athletes from Centre County today at 2 p.m at the Indoor Tennis Center. The athletes were invited to watch the end of the Nittany Lions' practice and participate in a clinic consisting of various drills and activities.
All Special Olympics PA athletes and their families, not just those participating in today's clinic, are invited to be Nittany Lions head coach Dawna Denny guests of honor for tomorrow's Penn State women's tennis match against Purdue at 11:30 a.m.
Penn State is coming off its first loss in over a month yesterday, when it fell to Purdue, 6-1. The Nittany Lions have garnered national attention with their success so far this year, including being ranking in the ITA poll for six straight weeks.
After the Purdue match, Penn State will hit the road for the first time in over a month and a half, when it travels to Iowa on Friday, March 30 at 5 p.m. and Nebraska on Sunday, April 1 at 11 a.m. The Nittany Lions will return home the following weekend when they host Minnesota on Friday, April 6 at 5 p.m. and Wisconsin on Sunday, April 8 at 11 a.m.
