05/15/17 7:04am

05/14/17 9:18pm
22 years ago, before most of the players on today's team were even born, Penn baseball won the Ivy League Championship. Since then, it has only returned to the championship series once, 10 years ago in 2007. Now, they’re back and only Yale stands in the way.

There’s no stopping it. Your final game might end in heartbreak. It might end with injury. It might even be for an Ivy title.
05/07/17 8:41pm
Nobody remembers the team in second. Penn baseball knows this better than anyone: the past three years have been spent in the dreaded No. 2 spot. But now, at long last, the Quakers have finally gotten over the hump.
05/07/17 8:34pm
With a division-clinching win over Columbia, Penn baseball took home one of the most monumental wins in program history. And, quite simply, the response we saw today is evidence that coach John Yurkow’s Quakers have finally taken that elusive next step.

Heartbreak for Penn men’s lacrosse. Despite playing one of their best all-around games of the season, the Quakers (7-6, 3-3 Ivy) fell at the hands of the top-seeded Yale Bulldogs in the Ivy League Tournament semifinals, 13-12, after a tournament-record four overtimes.
04/30/17 7:33pm
Another year of Penn Relays is now history. And while Penn track and field may not have repeated the same success of 2016, which saw the team win its first Relay since 1974, the Quakers still made a number of finals appearances, and broke some records, too.
04/29/17 8:29pm
So it all comes down to this. Needing one win in two home games against second-place Columbia to clinch its first Ivy League Lou Gehrig Division title since 2007, Penn baseball failed to close out on Saturday afternoon, taking a pair of losses by scores of 14-4 and 7-5 to fall into a tie with the Lions.
04/29/17 8:04pm
Many expected Torgersen to be drafted, at least in the last round on Saturday, but the senior quarterback had to watch on as all 253 picks were revealed without his name in them. He was ranked by ESPN as the 10th best quarterback prospect — 10 quarterbacks were drafted, including those ranked one through nine, and number 11. 
04/26/17 9:06pm
Penn track and field's sprinters have a busy weekend in front of them. As one of premier units on the team, both the men's and women's sprinters will be facing some of the best schools in the country this weekend at the Penn Relays. But that won't faze them, as they've shown throughout the year that they belong with the best.
04/26/17 8:44pm
The Penn Relays are upon us. And while the oldest and largest track and field meet in the nation is a sight to see, it can be tough to catch every event over the three-day bonanza. With that in mind, here are five events you should put on your calendar to get the best, most efficient Relays experience.
04/26/17 7:56pm
That touchdown pass was more than a key play in a regular season game. It was the moment Penn football was put back on the map. It was the moment Alek Torgersen burst onto the scene. And most of all, it was the first glimpse at a potential NFL quarterback.
04/26/17 5:12pm
With some of the world’s best athletes descending on Franklin Field for the Penn Relays, thousands will be in attendance to seem them compete. Although they might not be the main attraction, Penn track and field’s distance runners are hoping their performances will catch fans’ attention too.
04/26/17 4:59pm
Simply put, the Penn Relays is not only a bucket list experience, but it’s one that should keep you coming back, too. The roaring — and conspicuously Jamaican — crowds, the star power, the fanfare, the atmosphere and so much more provide everyone in attendance something to enjoy.
04/25/17 12:53am
As the 2016-17 school year nears its close, there have been some incredible Penn Athletics feats to reflect upon. But with so many Penn teams having such thorough success this year, there’s one natural question to ask — which one was best? DP Sports set out to find out.
04/25/17 12:00am
From the implementation of a 30 second shot clock to prevent teams from holding the ball in 2012, to the ever-evolving faceoff rules designed to get the ball out and moving, to the elimination of the multiple clearing timer requirements in favor of a single 30 second count, collegiate lacrosse has always embraced its dynamism, never afraid to change itself in the hopes of improving the quality of the game. However, while the NCAA proved adept at fixing these subtleties of gameplay, a more ominous problem emerged, one that had been ignored by the NCAA for too long.
04/25/17 12:00am
I didn’t love football immediately. I played tackle football for the first time in eighth grade on a team of 16 players and decided I wanted to play quarterback the day before my first practice. My coaches let me because I could remember all the plays, and I didn’t mind touching the center’s butt before every play — quite a consideration for 13 year olds.
04/24/17 12:04am
Sophomore Zareh Kaloustian was cut from Penn men's golf at the start of the 2016 season. In his time away from competition, he found his confidence on the course again.
04/23/17 9:33pm
Spring Fling has a very different meaning for freshman Isis Trotman. For most Penn students, Fling weekend is a chance to forget about school, go to concerts and party.
04/23/17 9:17pm
Just keep winning. If last weekend’s four-game sweep of Princeton wasn’t the biggest weekend of the season for Penn baseball, then maybe this weekend was.
04/23/17 9:17pm
The Quakers began what was arguably their toughest road weekend of the season against No. 44 Dartmouth. After dropping the doubles point to the Big Green, Penn began an epic series of singles contest. After two routine, straight-set losses, The Quakers were down 3-0 on the brink of defeat. Still, the Red and Blue would not quit.
04/23/17 5:58pm
One team needed to win to keep its season alive. The other had the chance to move into first place in the Ivy League with a victory. And both took care of business.
04/23/17 4:33pm
While the majority of Penn students were busting out new fling tanks and party hopping, Penn rowing had a busy weekend in a different way — but with mixed results.
04/19/17 5:45pm
With just three matches left in the season, Penn men's tennis is in the home stretch. Currently three matches behind first place, the Quakers’ (14-9, 1-3 Ivy) do not have a chance of winning the Ivy League, but their two opponents this weekend – Dartmouth and Harvard – are still in contention.
04/19/17 5:24pm
As finals week approaches for students around campus and the stress in the air seems to outnumber the pollen count, tensions are rising in the sports world as well. Spring regular seasons are coming to a close, and only several meets stand in the way of Penn track and field's pursuit of regional and national success.
04/19/17 5:05pm

04/18/17 9:32pm
It was a big-time stage for a big-time game — but by the slimmest of possible margins, Penn baseball couldn’t get the big-time win it’d been seeking for decades.
04/18/17 7:14pm
Two and a half years after being selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 36th round of the 2014 first-year player draft and committing to pitch for the Quakers, Wilpon found himself walking away from the game for good. 
04/18/17 6:34pm
It's been 60 years since Penn last hosted the East Regionals in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, when the Palestra saw March Madness played out under its roof for four straight years in 1954-57.
04/17/17 11:26pm
We started out the season trying to find our identity. While we had many of the same players, it was not the same team. We battled through some tough losses, but only to come out stronger. We were able to do that by focusing on one possession at a time. We took that mentality through to the end of the season.
04/16/17 11:37pm
It was just one of those days. That's all that needs to be said to describe Penn rowing's performances this weekend. The women's, men's heavyweight and men's lightweight squads all took encouraging yet frustrating second-place finishes in their respective meets.
04/16/17 8:55pm
At this time last year, Penn baseball was looking up at Princeton in the Ivy League standings after dropping three of four games away in New Jersey. Now, a year later, the Quakers celebrated enthusiastically in their dugout following a massive four-game home sweep of their bitterest rivals.
04/16/17 8:38pm
The women’s squad (10-8, 3-2 Ivy) rebounded from a 0-2 start in Ivy play and roared into impressive form, with a weekend sweep of Brown and Yale leading them to three straight wins. The men (14-9, 1-3) responded to a 3-0 deficit against Brown to complete an impressive 4-3 comeback. With this weekend producing some of the Red and Blue’s best tennis, it seems right to highlight some of the stars on the court this weekend.
04/16/17 7:03pm
To pick just one star from Penn baseball’s four-game demolition of bitter rival and defending Ivy League champion Princeton — a series that saw the Quakers take four wins by a combined score of 35-12 — seems like it’d be a crime. But even in a weekend full of standout performances, the consistent offensive dominance from senior outfielder Tim Graul stood out from the pack.
04/15/17 5:34pm
Talk about living up to the moment. With its back against the wall and the Ivy League Tournament on the line, Penn men’s lacrosse recovered its early season form just in time, defeating Harvard 14-10.
04/12/17 9:15pm
The Ivy season may not even be halfway done, but Penn Tennis is starting to see the puzzles pieces fall into place across the league.
04/12/17 6:44pm
With the advent of Quaker Days, students from all over the world have come to Penn this week to see what the University has to offer. This weekend, we’ll be getting even more. Penn track and field’s annual Transatlantic Meet will take place at Franklin Field on Saturday, with Ivy League heavyweights Cornell coming to Philadelphia along with a pair of English powerhouses in Oxford and Cambridge.
