As we get deeper into the second semester, we’ve started to get a firm grasp on the true makeup of Penn’s winter sports teams. Though there unquestionably is still time for certain teams to flip the script, we’ve already seen enough from most squads to judge whether they’re contenders or pretenders at this point. With that said, our sports editors take to the roundtable to debate: which Penn winter team has exceeded expectations the most so far:
01/29/17 9:33pm
From the Quakers' perspective: trap avoided. In a game that was close for a total of five minutes, Penn women’s basketball dispatched Stevens Tech 89-43.
01/29/17 9:04pm
In its final non-conference game of the season, Penn women’s basketball cruised to a 89-43 victory over Stevens Tech, breaking a few team records under coach Mike McLaughlin in the process.

After a string of strong showings to start the season, the Penn women’s gymnastics team took a unexpected, tough loss to West Chester University on Saturday by a score of 193.400 to 189.350. The Quakers came into this meet riding an impressive wave of momentum after a historically great performance against Yale. 
01/29/17 8:22pm
Looks like all the hard work is done. Penn swimming capped off its regular season with dual wins over West Chester last Friday.
01/25/17 11:20pm
The swimming and diving regular season comes to a close this Friday when the Penn men’s and women’s teams travel to West Chester University for a dual meet against the Golden Rams.
01/25/17 11:16pm
Coming off a huge comeback against Yale, Penn women’s gymnastics looks to parlay that momentum against a struggling West Chester squad which has lost its last three meets.
01/25/17 11:15pm
In its final Big 5 tilt of the season, Penn women's basketball just couldn’t keep up with Temple’s size and athleticism, falling by a score of 63-53. The score doesn’t do Penn justice, as the Red and Blue held a lead as late as 4:47 in the fourth quarter. The Quakers (9-6, 0-4 Big 5) finish winless in Big 5 play on the season, failing for the first time in five years to win a game in the mini-conference.
01/25/17 11:15pm
Don’t let the 63-53 scoreline deceive you, the Penn women’s basketball took Temple’s explosive side down to the wire in tonight’s Big 5 finale.
01/24/17 9:01pm
Needless to say, the local lack of success for Penn basketball has been disappointing, particularly so for a women's team that won the Big 5 as recently as 2015. With these struggles in mind, our sports editors take to the roundtable to debate: Does the Big 5 still matter to Penn basketball?
01/24/17 8:56pm
Penn (9-5, 0-3 Big 5) looks to avoid going winless in the Big 5 as it gets set to take on Temple (15-3, 3-0) on Wednesday. This week represents the final two non-conference games of the year for the Quakers as they take a quick break from the Ivy League, where they are undefeated.
01/24/17 8:42pm
"Soccer is the fastest growing sports market in the US." That statement, as well as many others on the state of soccer domestically and abroad, featured prominently on Monday evening at the Undergrate Sports Business Club's "Inside the Industry: Soccer" Panel.
01/23/17 9:52pm
The Monmouth men's basketball bench last year got a lot of press. Here’s one that might deserve more: Penn women’s basketball, a bench whose depth will be tested like never before after a last-minute change to move junior guard Beth Brzozowski into the starting lineup.
01/23/17 7:46pm
Penn women’s basketball’s Lauren Whitlatch is out for the season with a torn ACL.
01/23/17 12:15am
The epic last-rotation comeback by Penn gymnastics in its home opener against Yale was certainly a team effort, but the way sophomore captain Caroline Moore put the team on her back was a performance the likes of which Penn Athletics has rarely seen this year.
01/22/17 9:55pm
Penn women’s squash went a good distance to Palo Alto, Calif. for a meeting with Stanford on Sunday, but jet lag was not a problem as the No. 2 Quakers topped the No. 5 Cardinal, 6-3.
01/22/17 8:08pm
Both teams produced mirror 6-0 records on the day, with both teams posting wins against Duke, Haverford, NYU, and NJIT, and Sacred Heart. The men’s sixth win came against Drew, while the women closed their day with an impressive performance to defeat Temple.
01/21/17 6:35pm
After trailing for nearly the entirety of their dual meet against Yale on Saturday, the Red and Blue stunned the crowd with a ridiculous effort of 49.025 points in the floor exercise, pulling off a comeback for the ages in the final event and securing an unbelievable 193.575-192.125 win.
01/18/17 11:54pm
After topping No. 9 Dartmouth on Sunday, Penn women’s squash took home another two impressive victories over the past two days, defeating No. 3 Trinity and No. 14 Drexel to move to (5-1, 1-1 Ivy) on the year.
01/18/17 10:52pm
There’s no such thing as a day off. For Penn women’s squash, it will be heading out west to Stanford for what will be their fifth game in a one-week span.
01/18/17 10:52pm
Seeking its first win over Villanova since the 2001-2002 season, this was a game Penn women's basketball wanted badly. And for nearly three quarters, it looked like the Quakers might get it. Unfortunately for the Red and Blue, Villanova had other plans.
01/18/17 10:46pm
It’s the first time this season that a team other than Penn fencing will face off at the Quakers’ home stage, and if things go Penn’s way, those teams won’t be eager to come back. The Red and Blue host five teams in the Philadelphia Invitational this weekend. Penn will face off against Cornell, Northwestern, Sacred Heart, Temple and Duke in the Coach Dave Micahnik Center.
01/17/17 9:52pm
Saturday was just the beginning. After recording its highest team score since February 2015 in the first meet of the season this past Saturday in Washington DC, Penn gymnastics looks poised to have a breakout season in 2017.
01/17/17 9:13pm
Overall, the 2015-2016 season was one of improvement for Penn gymnastics.
01/17/17 9:13pm
Penn gymnastics is looking for a fresh start. After placing a disappointing fourth place in the Ivy League last season, Penn is hoping to raise its performance level with the help of an impressive group of six new recruits. And if the opening meet of the season was any indication, this class is ready to make an immediate impact to help the Red and Blue get back to the top.
01/17/17 8:58pm
When the Quakers take to the mats for the first time since last weekend’s eye-opening performance with a home showdown against Yale, the task for coach John Ceralde’s squad will be simple: prove to the gymnastics world that the stellar season opener was no fluke.
01/17/17 8:39pm
In Villanova (8-9, 4-3 Big East), Penn will face a surging team that has won four of its last five contests. The Wildcats' defense has been strong lately, giving up just 54.2 points per game over that stretch. Villanova has given the Quakers fits in recent years, as the Wildcats have won the previous 14 meetings, dating all the way back to the 2001-2002 season. The matchup also has an interesting side-storyline: Penn and Villanova are No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in fewest turnovers per game nationally.
01/17/17 3:44pm
“I want to be a part of one of the best teams Penn has ever had,” Penn gymnastics freshman Tara Mills told Penn Athletics before the season started. Through one meet, Mills and her teammates are off to a pretty good start.
01/16/17 11:15pm
Two down, check. On Sunday, Penn fencing recorded another strong showing in the second event of its January non-conference campaign.
01/16/17 8:35pm
It may not have been the best start to Ivy League play, but Penn squash’s weekend was about on par with expectations. Collegiate powerhouse Harvard and their travel partners Dartmouth came to the Ringe Squash Courts, and the Crimson rolled through the men and women on Saturday.
01/16/17 8:12pm
Once again, Harvard ruined a perfect afternoon. In their first, last and only home meet of the season, the Penn men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams hosted Brown and Harvard for the final Ivy dual race of the season.
01/16/17 10:43am
Two days, two Ivy League teams, and two commanding victories for Penn’s women’s basketball. If there’s one thing we’ve learned this weekend, it’s that we can trust this team more than we could ever trust any individual player on it.
01/14/17 11:07pm
Things are back to normal at the Palestra. After losing its first three home games this season, Penn women's basketball finally found its home court advantage with two comfortable wins over Brown and Yale.
01/14/17 11:01am
Penn women’s basketball beat Yale tonight 66-55 in their second conference matchup, making the Quakers 2-0 in the Ivy League. After a pretty back-and-forth first quarter, the Red and Blue took control and stifled the Bulldogs the rest of the way, keeping Penn unbeaten in conference play and therefore atop the league standings. Here’s a breakdown of each individual's performance.
01/13/17 8:56pm
When over half of the shots go in, it’s probably safe to say it’s been a good night. Penn women's basketball cruised to a routine 66-55 win over Yale on Saturday night at the Palestra, recording a season-high 52 percent shot accuracy from the field.
01/11/17 9:38pm
It’s safe to say that Michelle Nwokedi had an enjoyable first week of January. The 6-foot-3 junior forward led the Penn women’s basketball team to two wins, one in California against UC Riverside and the other to open Ivy play at Princeton. As a reward for her efforts in those victories, Nwokedi was named co-Ivy League Player of the Week.
01/11/17 9:37pm
For one Penn women’s squash player, the rise to the top just keeps on going. While the rest of campus was taking time off in December, sophomore Reeham Salah had a busy winter break, traveling to France to compete for Team USA in the World Women’s Team Squash Championships.
01/11/17 9:24pm
No. 1 vs. No. 2. It doesn’t get any more important than this. Penn squash has a high-stakes weekend coming up, including a top-two clash for the women against top-ranked Harvard.
01/11/17 9:07pm
How do you follow up a fourth quarter, come from behind victory against your biggest rival on their home court in the conference play opener? For Penn women's basketball, the answer is hopefully with two more wins. The Quakers (7-4, 1-0 Ivy), fresh off their 62-57 defeat of Princeton last Saturday, cannot afford to sit back and relax, as they begin to move into the heart of Ivy play this weekend.
01/10/17 7:48pm
New year, same great Penn fencing. This past weekend, the Quakers' fencing teams recorded strong efforts at the North American Cup (NAC) in Columbus, Ohio to bring in the new year.
01/10/17 7:27pm
While most of us were off relaxing over winter break, Penn sports teams were busy at work. Our editors debate: Which team had the best winter break?

LOS ANGELES — There comes a point in between semesters where you need a break from winter break. That’s just what Penn women’s basketball got with a five-day working vacation in California this past week.
01/10/17 6:11pm
While everyone was relaxing during winter break, there was no time off for Penn swimming and diving, as both the men's and women's teams took on Dartmouth and Yale in their second Ivy League Tri-Meet of the season.
01/08/17 5:46am
Penn women’s basketball went to Princeton on Saturday to open up their Ivy League season with an absolute thriller.  As for the players, there was a mixed bag of performances. Below here are our first ever player ratings:
01/07/17 3:16pm
After an extremely back-and-forth game, the Quakers pulled ahead in the fourth quarter and held off a last minute onslaught by the Tigers to win by the score of 62-57.
01/04/17 6:24am
Penn women's basketball knows the road to an Ivy League championship goes through Princeton’s Jadwin Gym. After all, it was in that very building that the Quakers won the Ivy title last year and officially punched their ticket to the NCAA tournament.
01/03/17 9:50pm
LOS ANGELES — The team that came to California was not going to defend its Ivy title. It isn’t just that Penn women’s basketball hadn’t been playing well — though that was certainly the case.
01/03/17 1:58am
RIVERSIDE, Calif. — In the City of Angels, a star was born. Thanks to a team-high 15 points from freshman Phoebe Sterba, Penn women’s basketball completed a sweep of its California adventure with a 71-55 win over UC Riverside on Monday.
12/30/16 5:00pm
Behind a career-high 13 points from sophomore forward Princess Aghayere, Penn took unquestionably its top win of the season, topping Cal State Northridge, 47-36, in a gritty defensive battle.
