BERKS COUNTY, Pa. - Kutztown softball has received a bid to the NCAA Atlantic Regional at the Division II level. Penn State-Berks has also qualified for NCAAs in the Division III classification.

The Penn State Berks softball team took down Keuka College, 8-0, in the championship game on Sunday afternoon at Hintz Athletic Field to earn its fourth NEAC Softball title in five years.
