Compared to other colleges, sporting events at Lock Haven are nothing special. Not many students attend, so school spirit is nonexistent and could use a lot of improvement. There are two Division I teams: women’s field hockey and men’s wrestling. The NCAA Division II women’s softball team won national championships in 2006 and 2009, respectively, but the football team hasn’t won a game in years. On the other hand, club sports are very popular, and many students get involved with them, making T-shirts and showing up for the events. You will find more students talking about intramural games than the varsity ones.
The well-maintained and clean Lock Haven facilities allow athletes and nonathletes alike to maximize their training and get the best possible results. The football field is located at the top of a hill and has a gorgeous view of Lock Haven. It’s a hike to get to the top, but when one reaches it, the view is picturesque. The gym at Lock Haven is very up-to-date and packed. There is a rock-climbing wall, a lifting room, a track, three basketball courts, racquetball, aerobics rooms, and a sauna. Overall, the gym facility is the place to be and to socialize.
