    On Tuesday, Oct. 31, both the field hockey and women’s soccer teams of Bloomsburg University traveled to West Chester University for the opening round of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference playoffs. Both games resulted in 1-0 shutout wins by the Golden Rams, ending the seasons of both Bloomsburg teams.

Meanwhile, the BU men’s soccer team concludes the regular season at 5-12. Although the men’s team did not qualify for the PSAC tournament, they ended on a two-game win streak that featured two shutouts.

     A total of 12 seniors will graduate from these three teams – seven from men’s soccer, two from women’s soccer, and three from field hockey.
