With the current Penn State football season getting dramatic, of late, I’ve let the hockey season creep up and begin without properly addressing it. Thankfully, that slip-up prevented me from doing the same thing with the other winter sports!
Pennsylvania is a hot-bed for hockey and the Penn State hockey program is on the verge of…well…existence, at least as a big time program. If you’re a hockey fan and you’re following Guy Gadowsky’s first season in Happy Valley, maybe you’d be interested in covering them here at VBR.
A current staff member has volunteered his services for basketball season, but could certainly use some assistance as I expect Pat Chambers and Co. to make some noise in the 2012-2013 season.
Also, the women’s basketball team deserves some pub following their 2011-2012 campaign. Coach Washington is doing a great job of recruiting for an already competitive team.
Cael Sanderson and the wrestling team will begin their season soon, defending back to back national championships. They are one of the most successful collegiate athletic programs in the country and deserve some attention.
If you’re interested in covering one or more of the teams listed above, please contact me at [email protected]
Previous writing experience is preferred, though not necessary. This could serve as a great opportunity for journalism students to cover athletics while having their work published on the internet.
VBR can serve as a resume` builder or simply as a fun way to vent about your favorite team. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to reach out with whatever questions you may have.
