After a four-week semester break, the Penn State New Kensington men's winter sports teams enter the 2012 portion of the campaign. Coach Doug Schneider’s squad returns with a two-game conference homestand at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 13, against Penn State Mont Alto in the Athletics Center. The next day, the New Kensington Lions host Penn State Hazleton at noon. New Kensington has a 2-4 Penn State University Athletic Conference record and a 3-6 overall mark.

In conjunction with the Hazleton game, the Alle-Kiski Alumni Society is sponsoring an alumni social.

The social includes free food. For more information or to RSVP for the social, contact Bill Woodard at
