After a fourth-place finish at the Paul Short Invitational, Penn men's cross country walked away from Lehigh University ranked second in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the NCAA. With their No. 2 ranking, the Quakers have approached historic territory, matching the best ranking in program history.
Despite the season's early woes, the Quakers (1-6-1, 0-0-1 Ivy) entered the competition with energy and confidence. However, Penn's early dominance was met by an offensive onslaught by Cornell in the second half and overtime.
A hard-fought match ended in defeat for Penn men's soccer, who came into Saturday's game against Drexel seeking their second win of the season. Although the outcome of a 2-1 loss may have been disappointing, the game provided the youthful Quakers something more valuable: experience.
