Scout History: Men and Women

                    A Basketball Powerhouse in Midtown

Winning is expected today from the men’s basketball team, which regularly racks up 20 or more wins season after season. Plaques and awards continue to pile up. The team has won the Regional Championship 14 times, been runner-up nine times, has gone to the National Tournament 14 times and won the National Championship in 1995-96. 

The roots of today’s Scouts began in 1967 when the Scouts was first known as the Unicorns of Penn Valley. A team was fielded and a field house was built on the new Penn Valley campus. The first team had a 7-11 game score. The mascot name changed to Scouts and then there was a huge shift in winning percentage. The incredible legacy of Head Coach Fred Pohlman began. He coached for 31 years, won 600+ games, numerous Regional Championship titles and won the National Championship in 1995-96.

The winning continues under Athletic Director/Head Coach Marcus Harvey. During his twenty year plus tenure, he has won more than 499+ games and has won the District Championship fifteen times and has been to the National Tournament ten times. In the 2014-2015 season the men's basketball team won the Regional Championship and placed 7th in the National Tournament.
