While it is still early in the season, these next few weeks begin to reveal which player’s hot streaks are legitimate, and which ones were a fluke. Here are five players who impressed in the second week of the season, and should have their talents utilized sooner rather than later.
They say college is a blur full of memories that last a lifetime. Shippensburg University senior Megan Lundy sprinted her way through campus while maintaining a 4.0 cumulative GPA and winning two PSAC Top 10 awards.
Spring is a season of new beginnings, and April 16 marked the official start of the 2016 Shippensburg University football season. The Raiders kicked off the year with their annual Red-White Spring Game. The White team was victorious, 13-3.

Danny Willett was not expected to even show up to the Masters this week, as he was the last person to register for the tournament, Willett, 28, walked off the 18th hole fairway as a Masters Champion and as a new father.

The stage is set; All 16 teams are locked in for the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. There is a diverse group of teams this year, with many familiar faces and a couple new ones all looking to win the coveted Lord Stanley’s Cup.
The Shippensburg University women’s lacrosse team lost this Saturday in a road match against Seton Hill University. In the end, Seton Hill walked away victorious 15-8. The snowy and frigid conditions of Saturday’s match made it difficult for both teams to compete.
It took 81 games, but the Philadelphia Flyers have clinched a wild card position in the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers defeated their cross-state rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, on Saturday night by a score of 3-1 to clinch their second playoff spot in the past four seasons. The Flyers were truly underdogs heading into the season. Behind the true superstars on the team in Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux, many of the players were seen as underachievers. The team had also just signed a new head coach in Dave Hakstol and a new general manager in Ron Hextall, so many people believed that this season would be spent acclimating to an entirely new structure. Instead, the team played its heart out and made it to the playoffs.
