The Army Women's Team Handball traveled to Penn State University to take on the current college national champions. The Gold team played both games against Penn State since most of the Black team players were tied up with 500th night weekend. Gold started off the first quite slowly as the new players had to learn how to work with each other and the pace of play was faster than they had ever experienced. They rallied in the second half, but still lost 14 to 23. They toughened up their defense for the second game, staying within 2 points of Penn State until the final five minutes of the game, but still lost 7 to 12 against the defending national champions. A great developmental experience for the team.
