For many, summer is a great time to relax and recover from nine months of late-night cramming and early-morning rising. But for Penn student-athletes, summer isn't much of a rest. It might be the offseason, but few athletes can afford to take the summer off. On top of all of the training, throw in a full work day in the office and suddenly, a warm summer's day doesn't seem so pleasant anymore. For DP Sports' three varsity student athletes, however, it is nothing they aren't used to. Check out how they are balancing it all below.

But just because an athlete may have an internship doesn’t mean their normal commitments as a college athlete are ending.
For me and my fellow athletes, Spring Fling goes one of two ways: you’re either in town constantly turning down invitations to darties, or you’re not in town and are forced to live vicariously through your friend’s drunk snapchat stories.
There are 35 international student-athletes at Penn with 19 different countries represented, ranging from Hong Kong to Egypt to French Guiana. We wanted to highlight some of the athletes that best exemplify the character international students give to the university. These are their stories.
In game two with the squad down 6-5 with two outs in the seventh, Jurie Joyner hit a home run to bring the game into extra innings. This completely changed the dynamic and the Quakers (11-10, 2-2 Ivy) took back control of the game.
Following a successful Spring Break trip, the Quakers are looking to stay hot this weekend against St. John’s (10-2). On that trip, the Red and Blue (6-6, 0-0 Ivy) went 3-1, including a dominant 5-2 victory against No. 36 Florida State.
