William Penn University is expanding its athletic program. Starting with the 2020-21 school year, the Statesmen will add men’s and women’s shotgun sports. William Penn Athletic Director Nik Rule says “Shotgun sports are rapidly growing in intercollegiate athletics and fits what we are looking for as an institution.” Rule added that those who take part in the shotgun sports program will receive extensive training on the proper use of a firearm. The Statesmen will compete in skeet, trap, sporting clays and international skeet shooting. The season will begin in September 2020 and run through April.
