For Penn track and field, 2016 was a year brimming with accolades and fraught with never-before-seen accomplishments — but there was still even more left on the table.
Despite the storm, Penn track and field is preparing to co-host the Philadelphia College Classic on Friday at Franklin Field. After exceeding expectations during the indoor season, Penn’s throwers and jumpers are gearing up for a big outdoor season.
Riding tremendous waves of momentum from the indoor season, Penn track and field's high-flying sprinters have their sights set on Ivy League glory — and beyond — this outdoor season.
This Friday’s Philadelphia College Classic marks the kickoff of the outdoor season, and for many freshmen the first opportunity to compete at Franklin Field wearing the Red and Blue.
By all accounts, the first-ever Ivy League basketball tournament was a grand success, thanks in large part to the event's host, the Palestra.
The Quakers will face No. 5 seed Texas A&M on Saturday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
Without a doubt, the inaugural Ivy League tournament was a success by any definition of the word. But was it the best move for the league to make? Ultimately, I’m still skeptical.
While most Penn students were making their way to exotic locations like Puerto Vallarta and Cabo for Spring Break, many Penn student-athletes were embarking on their annual spring training trips.
Penn's victories this weekend showcased some of the best this team has to offer: great ball movement on offense and stingy defense that forces teams to make tough shots and Michelle Nwokedi dominating on both sides of the ball. But even still, there are plenty of questions left for this team as they approach the NCAA Tournament.
Ivy League regular season championship? Check. Ivy League Tournament championship? Check that, too.
You know all about Penn men’s and women’s basketball’s performances at the inaugural Ivy League tournament this weekend, but those teams were far from the only Red and Blue squads competing over a jam-packed spring break.
Despite playing what has to be in the conversation for the best ever of the two schools’ 237 all-time meetings, the Cinderella run for Penn men’s basketball finally came to an end today. Though the Quakers never trailed in regulation and held a 10-point second half lead, the squad came up agonizingly short of stunning the unbeaten Tigers in a heartbreaking 72-64 overtime loss.
There’s no escaping it — Penn men’s basketball choked in the end of its Ivy League Tournament loss to Princeton. Penn’s spirit looked remarkably shattered after the final whistle, but the players can go home with their heads held high.
Despite leading through much of the first half, Penn saw their lead shrink down to 33-32 at the break due to a barrage of threes from Brown. The Bears came roaring out of the gates to take the lead, but Penn responded with a 14-0 run to take the lead for good.
After today, though, Penn women’s basketball took one step closer to another trip to the Big Dance after beating Brown in the first-ever Ivy League Tournament game, 71-60.
The impossible dream has come true: Penn men’s basketball came back from the dead to make the first-ever Ivy League Tournament. But this story isn’t over.
The No. 1 seeded Penn Quakers (20-7, 13-1 Ivy) will fight this weekend for a bid to the NCAA Tournament at the Ivy League’s inaugural postseason tournament. Only the top four teams made it this far, and according to Penn coach Mike McLaughlin, anyone can win it.
After a dominant Ivy League campaign, nobody should be surprised that Penn women's basketball scored big when Ivy League year-end awards were announced.
Junior forward Michelle Nwokedi (Ivy League Player of the Year and First Team All-Ivy), senior center Sydney Stipanovich and junior guard Anna Ross (Second Team All-Ivy) and coach Mike McLaughlin (Ivy League Coach of the Year) were big winners when the awards were handed out on Thursday, just as they have been all season with the 13-1 Quakers, who enter the Ivy League Tournament as the top seed.
After falling to last place in the Ivy League with an 0-6 start, Penn men's basketball was down in the dumps. Big time. But thanks to the new Ivy League Tournament, Penn was still not technically out. Outside Penn’s locker room, few gave the Quakers any chance, but this team persevered.
One night after securing a share of the Ivy title, Penn women's basketball defeated Harvard 64-46 to take the title outright and secure the top seed in the inaugural Ivy League Tournament. This is the first time in program history that the Quakers (19-7, 12-1 Ivy) captured back-to-back Ivy titles.
