“We are happy Courtney and Eleri will be joining our team this season, ” said Kampersal. “They are both humble women and experienced players that played for successful programs.   We are looking forward to them complementing our already talented returning and first-year players.   They are also driven students.   I’m glad they choose Penn State to pursue a graduate degree in our elite Smeal College of Business. ”
