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
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.

With just four games left of the 2017 softball season, senior right fielder Leah Allen is doing all she can to cement her legacy as one of the greatest players to ever grace Penn Park.
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 10:35pm
No. 10 Penn women’s lacrosse took one giant leap towards the top of the Ivy League standings with a pivotal 17-12 win over No. 7 Princeton on Wednesday night. Saturday’s clash at Harvard is now even more important, as the Quakers could conceivably return to the top of the conference, should league-leaders No. 11 Cornell slip up.
04/19/17 9:28pm
In a rollercoaster matchup between Big 5 rivals that saw three lead changes in the final three innings, the Quakers fell to Saint Joseph's by the score of 5-4 on a two run, walk-off single. This loss is the fifth straight and six out of seven for the Red and Blue (15-17, 5-7 Ivy), who were swept in a four-game weekend set at home against Princeton.
04/19/17 7:53pm
For Morales, coming to Penn came with the luxury of ambiguity not usually afforded to athletes of her caliber. Part of that comes from the niche nature of the sport of wakeboarding; another explanation is her humble comportment.
04/19/17 7:30pm
If things go their way, Penn women’s tennis could end up with slice of this season’s Ivy League title, but if you ask anybody on the team, it’s clear that they have better things to focus on. Yes, wins are important, but for coach Sanela Kunovac’s side, this season has been made to be about one thing – the process. After an incredible spring break trip down to Florida saw the Quakers win four out of five matches, the team (10-8, 3-2 Ivy) hit a setback when it dropped its opening two matches of Ivy play to Princeton and Columbia. Things have been different since then.
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 4:55pm
It's title time. This Friday, Penn’s men's and women's golf will take to the course for the Ivy League Championship.
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.
04/17/17 10:32pm
With such a star-studded senior class, Penn softball is desperate for a late season rally to send some of its top contributors off in style.
04/17/17 10:02pm
Most athletes, including myself, come in with a perfect image of what it means to be a Division I athlete. I committed in the fall of my junior year to Penn field hockey as a goalkeeper. Unfortunately, the experience that I endured was something so unexpected and disheartening that still, to this day, it's hard to accept.
04/17/17 9:19pm
Honorable Mention All-Ivy. 23 wins. 232 saves. 1,757 minutes played. So far, that is the legacy that the goalkeeper will leave behind from her two seasons with the Quakers. Quite possibly, fans may have never had the chance to witness her sheer dominance, but fate, as always, intervened.
04/17/17 9:18pm
From a development standpoint, a collegiate athlete’s freshman season is critical. It is a time of learning by doing, developing skills, and getting an initial taste of college athletics.
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 8:40pm
This one hurts. Penn softball entered this weekend's four game set with Princeton on the upswing, winners of four of their last five, and in prime striking distance, just one game back from the Tigers in the Ivy South Division. But now, it's all but over.
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.
04/15/17 5:25pm
Having been on the brink of elimination from its tenth regular season conference championship in 11 years for more than a month, there’s been only one focus for Penn women’s lacrosse — staying alive. And behind a tremendously balanced offensive effort featuring a combined nine goals from senior Emily Rogers-Healion and freshman Gabby Rosenzweig, the Red and Blue did just that yet again.
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 9:13pm
The bats are coming alive at the right time for Penn softball. The Red and Blue defeated Drexel 10-3 on Wednesday and can now shift their focus onto the weekend as they await Ivy League-leading Princeton for a crucial set of doubleheaders around the diamond.
04/12/17 7:10pm
It’s on to the next one. That’s the mentality for Penn women’s lacrosse as it prepares to take on Columbia this weekend in New York.
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.
04/11/17 7:02pm
Penn women's basketball may have ended its season almost a month ago, but the awards haven't stopped coming in, recognizing the team's standout season. Junior forward Michelle Nwokedi was just named a member of the All-Big 5 First-Team of the season, while senior center Sydney Stipanovich picked up a Second-Team honor herself. 
04/11/17 3:10pm
For Penn baseball and softball, Ivy League weekends are action packed marathons of excitement. A lot can change in four games in two days, so any weekday action is often a welcome break from the chaos of the conference title races. This Wednesday, Penn baseball and softball get such a chance.
04/10/17 9:01pm
The weekend was special for the Quakers, having two of the three finalists, Swirbalus and Graham, fourth on floor and sixth on beam respectively, place in the finals. Nonetheless, for Kyra Levi, it was still one of the most memorable parts of the weekend for her to see her teammates rise to the top.
04/10/17 8:34pm
The turn of the calendar from 2016 to 2017 brought a change in leadership that threatened to throw a once-united community into anarchy.
04/10/17 5:56pm
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.
04/09/17 11:42pm
Heading into this weekend, Penn men’s tennis knew that this was going to be one of, if not the toughest, pair of matches the team would face all season. The Quakers took on Columbia and Cornell this weekend, dropping both matches to the top-25 ranked programs.
04/09/17 9:49pm
It was a busy day for Penn's rowers on Saturday, with the three squads having mixed results. The men's heavyweight crew found themselves on Lake Carnegie, racing against host Princeton and fellow Ivy League rival Columbia.
04/09/17 7:18pm
Consider the stakes raised. After collecting a sweep of Yale and a split with Brown over the weekend, Penn softball has faced every opponent in the North Division and already has its eyes on the South Division title.
04/09/17 5:43pm
Penn women’s lacrosse has a knack for making big games look easy. It did that on Saturday when they handily took down Dartmouth, 17-6.
04/09/17 5:16pm
In two starts, one each against Brown and Yale, the senior ace threw two complete games, compiling a 2.00 ERA for the weekend. Penn (14-12, 5-3 Ivy) went on to win both games, beating Yale by the score of 4-1 and Brown by the score of 5-3, and Sargent earned the victory in both.
04/09/17 3:44pm
On Saturday, Penn track and field continued a string of impressive and record-setting performances at the Virginia Quad Meet.

The Quakers continued the trend of building up stronger performances as the season progresses, recording 15 top-10 record marks, including three new school records.
04/05/17 7:32pm
The weather may be turning nice, but for Penn tennis, there’s a storm brewing this weekend. Both Red and Blue teams will have their hands full with their first Ivy League doubleheader weekends of the season.
04/05/17 1:49pm
In yet another action-packed weekend for Penn Athletics, a slew of rowing, golf and track squads will be testing their talents around the country once again.
04/05/17 11:22am
This weekend, 12 members of the team will travel to Seattle, Wash., to compete in the USAG Women’s Collegiate Championships. And despite the young team’s underwhelming sixth-place showing at last month’s ECAC Championships, individual morale is high.
04/04/17 9:34pm
When it rains, it pours. Penn Softball, like the thunderstorm that loomed overhead, couldn’t get anything going in a devastating 8-1 loss to Villanova. The results last weekend showed the Quakers (11-11, 2-2 Ivy) can come back from a deficit late, but this game was over in a hurry.
04/04/17 9:34pm
For Penn, this contest, and the four to follow it, are must-wins for the side seeking a share of the Ancient Eight title as well as home-field advantage come the NCAA Tournament.
04/04/17 9:27pm
With women's lacrosse ranked in the top 10 nationally, track and field seeing school records fall left and right, baseball having won ten of its last 11 games and more, the season has seen some supreme successes already — but only one athlete can stand out as the best. Our sports editors take to the roundtable to debate: Who is the Penn Athletics spring season MVP so far?
04/03/17 8:33pm
Sometimes, a strong start and finish just won't quite do it. Penn women's golf learned this when it finished fifth out of eight teams in the Harvard Invitational this past Saturday.
04/03/17 8:24pm
Before getting into who rowed the best and what teams finished first, it is important to understand that winning and losing are not always that important in the grand scheme of life.
04/03/17 6:44pm
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.
04/03/17 6:34pm
The tides began to turn when Condon strung together a run of hat tricks. In her last 12 games of 2016, the quick-shooting midfielder had nine performances with three or more goals. If that sounds like a lot, that’s because it is — Condon’s play progressed from a pretty good early season to an elite performance down the stretch. When all was said and done, her 41 goals that year were the sixth-most in program history.
04/03/17 6:17pm
On Monday, Penn Athletics became the first Ivy League athletic program to take the “It’s On Us” pledge against sexual violence, an awareness campaign launched in September 2014 by President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to help end sexual assault on American college campuses.
04/02/17 9:11pm
This weekend, Penn track and field found itself strewn across the country in three different states and two different time zones to compete in three separate meets: the Stanford Invitational, the Danny Curran Invitational, and the Pepsi Florida Relays. Despite being forced to compete without their teammates, the Quakers made the most of their time apart, registering a number of personal bests and shattering four program records.
04/02/17 8:24pm
While it was a tough loss for the Red and Blue (7-7, 0-1 Ivy), the day got off to a promising start as Penn grinded out the opening doubles point. After Penn and Princeton (10-6, 1-0) split the first two doubles’ sets, the no. 3 doubles pair of sophomore Marta Kowalska and senior Luba Vazhenina proved their mettle to pull out a 6-3 victory over the Tigers.
04/02/17 6:57pm
They made it to the final stretch — and they’re still standing. In the last game in a long series of tough matches against ranked non-conference teams, No. 11 Penn women’s lacrosse pulled off a comeback to remember at No. 16 Northwestern.
