4 College Freshman

Athletics: They have a lot of different intramural sports to choose from like soccer and Quidditch

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The coaches are great however facilities could be better and some sports are treated unequally

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a member of the wrestling team I spend alot of time in the wrestling room, gym,and training center. All the equipment is well maintained with adequate stations. Athletes have their own training facilities so they have almost 24 hr availability. All students including members of the athletic teams can also use the regular training center.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit at Lock Haven is great. A lot of students attend games to cheer on the players

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I think there is a lack of school spirit here. But, all of the sports facilities and fields are in great condition and kept up with and when I attend a sporting event I am always happy. We have some really good teams. Some D1 but mostly D2. Our football team isn't very good to be honest.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
