Fans are invited to celebrate the 2015-16 Youngstown State women's basketball season at the team's annual year-end banquet on Friday, April 8, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Youngstown.

Doors to the event will open at 6 p.m., and the team will be introduced at 6:30 p.m. A buffet dinner, program and highlight video will follow. The cost to attend the banquet is $25, and student-athlete meals can be sponsored for $15.

The Penguins won 21 games and advanced to the semifinals of the Women's Basketball Invitational in 2015-16. With a young team that had at least three underclassmen start in every game, YSU played in a postseason tournament and won more than 20 games for the third time in the last four years. The coaching staff will hand out awards for the team's Most Valuable Player, the Defensive Player of the Year, the Most Improved Player and the Newcomer of the Year at the banquet.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel is located at 343 Via Mt. Carmel Ave, Youngstown, OH.
