PSU AD: Program 'holding up well' in adversity
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State athletes answered questions about how they're dealing with the fallout from the crisis that enveloped the school with statements on the field or in the gym.
This spring alone, the embattled athletic program won a second straight NCAA wrestling title and the women's basketball team advanced to the NCAA regional finals.
Acting Athletic Director David Joyner said Wednesday it is proof athletes are holding up well amid unprecedented scrutiny.
Joyner took over in November amid the fallout following child sexual abuse charges against retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The NCAA and Big Ten have started their own inquiries into the matter. Joyner said those inquiries remain in a holding pattern pending the school's own internal investigation.
Donations to the athletic department booster club are also up.
