ABINGTON, Pa. — Penn State Abington student athletes bloomed this spring.

Golf (men)

Penn State Abington senior Mike Lam earned his second North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Golfer of the Year award last week after a strong showing at the second day of the NEAC Championships. Lam earned NEAC all-conference honors all four years at Abington and earned his third consecutive first-team all-conference award.

Tennis (men) 

Men's tennis player Michael Litz earned player of the year and first team all-conference and shared rookie of the year honors. He is joined on the first team all-conference by JT Kling and the doubles team of Tarik Dashields and Prerak Patel.

Several players earned second team all-conference awards: Sean Kimball, Patel, and Ilker Erkut as singles players and the doubles teams of Litz and Kimball and Kling and Alexander Dunetz.

Tennis (women)

Abington women's tennis won the regular season title and its first NEAC West Tournament with a 5-2 win over Penn State Berks in the championship match. 

Lacrosse (women)

For the fourth time this season, the NEAC chose sophomore Marah Hayes as its offensive student athlete of the week. The sophomore contributed three goals, three assists, and five ground balls in one game. In another game, the sophomore attacker scored five goals and won nine draw controls in an upset win over NEAC leader Morrisville State, handing the Mustangs its first conference loss of the year. 

Penn State Abington, formerly the Ogontz campus, offers baccalaureate degrees in 18 majors at its suburban location just north of Philadelphia. Nearly half of our 4,000 students complete all four years at Abington, with opportunities in undergraduate research, the Schreyer honors program, NCAA Division III athletics, and more. Students can start the first two years of more than 160 Penn State majors at Abington and complete their degrees at University Park or another campus. Lions Gate, our first residence hall, will open in August.
