The Penn Stater Daily — Dec. 9, 2013

A record weekend: Senior guard Maggie Lucas scored 30 points Sunday in a 77-68 win at Georgetown, in the process becoming just the fifth player in Lady Lion history to reach 2,000 points. The reigning Big Ten Player of the Year and a preseason All-American, Lucas (below) is on pace to pass Kahadeejah Herbert ’86, Tyra Grant ’10, and Susan Robinson Fruchtl ’92 en route to second place on the Penn State scoring list. The school record—2,919 points, set by Kelly Mazzante ’04—is probably safe.

Meanwhile, the top-ranked Nittany Lion wrestlers capped a 2-0 weekend with a 28-9 victory over Pitt—a “home” win, but not in the usual sense. Instead of grappling in their usual Rec Hall digs, the Lions hosted the Panthers in front of 15,996 fans at the Bryce Jordan Center, setting records for both the largest crowd to see an NCAA dual meet and the largest crowd to see a sporting event at the BJC.

The Penn Stater Daily — Sept. 9, 2013

From news to features, your daily dose of everything Penn State.

His Number’s Up: The big news of the weekend came during halftime of the Nittany Lions’ win over Eastern Michigan, with the surprise announcement that John Cappelletti ’74 will be the first Penn State athlete—in any sport—to have his number retired. We’ll have more on that later today in our Weekend Sports Wrap.

Comm Dean to Retire: Doug Anderson, dean of the College of Communications since 1999, announced on Friday that he will retire at the end of the 2013–14 academic year. As a Comm alum who has volunteered at mentoring events over the years and briefly taught in the college, I can vouch for the ways Anderson has helped lead it forward. He’ll be missed.

The Cutest Guy on Campus: For our money, it’s Wynne (below), the 8-year-old yellow Labrador retriever who handles bomb-sniffing duties for the University Police department.
