Mont Alto, Pa. – For the first time in program history, the Penn State Mont Alto men's soccer program is collaborating with the Antietam Humane Society (AHS) on Saturday, September 16 to raise support for the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of humane treatment for all animals. The Lions will be taking on PSUAC foe Penn State Greater Allegheny in the opening match of conference play in a highly anticipated matchup this season.
