"We are excited about the 2015-16 tournament schedule as we have a great mix of some old traditional events, as well as some new exciting competitions," Head Coach Denise St. Pierre said. "We invite all fans to come and watch us play as we travel about the country. Our events are free and we love seeing our Nittany Lion family on the road!"

The Nittany Lion Invitational, which is free admission for the public, moves from a three-day tournament to a two-day tournament. The teams will still play three rounds.

Following the NLI, Penn State returns to the Cougar Classic in Charleston, South Carolina from Sunday, Sept. 13 through Tuesday, Sept. 15. The Nittany Lions then travel to Madison, Wisconsin for the East/West Matches from Sunday, Sept. 20 through Tuesday, Sept. 22.

After a two-week break, the Nittany Lions travel to North Carolina for a pair of tournaments in the Pinehurst Invitational on Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13 and the Landfall Tradition from Thursday, Oct. 22 through Sunday, Oct. 25 to close out the fall slate.

The Nittany Lions begin spring play in Mesa, Arizona at the Clover Cup from Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13. Penn State then heads to the Briar's Creek Invitational (March 21-22) in Charleston, S.C., followed by the John Kirk Panther Invitational at Georgia State (March 27-29).
