Burrough’s decision to leave the team comes two months after the DP published an article detailing poor player retention on Penn softball and allegations of mistreatment from softball coach Leslie King, who is in her 15th year at Penn.
With elections of Penn’s two branches of student government underway, two Penn track athletes are running for office with the hopes of utilizing what they have learned on the track to help them as student representatives.
It wasn’t until after the Quakers’ third game of the season against Rutgers that coach Karin Corbett designated Mikaila Cheeseman as the regular starter — and it's been all uphill from there for the budding sophomore star.
Though Penn's fans were heavily outnumbered by Kansas' fans in Wichita, the Quaker faithful more than made themselves heard.
Penn men’s basketball might have come short of pulling off the greatest upset in college basketball history, but the Quakers have so much to be proud of.
Before Penn tries to pull off what may just be the greatest upset in college basketball history, get to know four of the star players from each team.
On Tuesday afternoon, Penn students and employees gathered outside the Palestra in the dozens to send Penn men’s basketball off to the site of its first round NCAA Tournament game against Kansas on Thursday: Wichita, Kansas.

Behind a career-high 23 points from backup sophomore guard Devon Goodman and 16 points from backup senior guard Caleb Wood, the bench powered the Quakers to a 74-62 comeback victory over Columbia.
When Penn senior guard and captain Anna Ross picked up her second foul less than five minutes into the game, it would’ve been perfectly reasonable to think the Quakers were in trouble.
Both Penn (15-5, 6-1 Ivy) and Princeton (16-4, 6-1) have dropped just one Ivy contest, but at the moment, the Tigers seems to be in the driver’s seat thanks to their road win over the Quakers in early January.
The DP was forwarded an email sent to Penn softball alumni from Penn Athletic Director M. Grace Calhoun.
A win against the Tigers would not only give Penn a sweep over its rival, but would also solidify the Red and Blue's standing atop the Ivy League. Ahead of the big game, three DP sportswriters made their cases for the biggest keys to a Quaker victory.
