ÿÿÿÿÿÿVan Arsdale takes leave of M. Laxÿ

Penn men's lacrosse coach Marc van Arsdale announced his resignation after five years at the head of the program.

Under van Arsdale, the Quakers have posted a 27-39 record. In its most recent campaign, Penn was 6-7 overall and finished 3-3 in the Ivy League.

Van Arsdale's resignation will be effective as of August 15, 2001, and a search for the next head coach of Penn men's lacrosse is scheduled to begin immediately.

ÿÿÿÿÿÿJunior National light-hwt. title stays with Pennÿ

Penn wrestling coach Roger Reina should be pretty confident about his incoming freshman class.

Or, at the very minimum, one of its members.

Last Saturday, at the culmination of the 2001 Asics Junior National Championships, Penn wrestling recruit Matt Feast won the Freestyle title at 220 pounds.

This was Feast's second title of the 2001 Championships, which began on July 20 in Fargo, N.D. His first came at the same weight in the Greco-Roman discipline, which Penn sophomore Mike Faust won last summer before matriculating at Penn.

ÿÿÿÿÿÿComcast to air five Penn games in the fall seasonÿ

It's not prime time television, but we'll take it.

This fall, five Penn athletic events will be televised on CN8 of the Comcast Network as part of its commitment to local sports.

The CN8 Network reaches 3.9 million households in Baltimore, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Western Pennsylvania.

Of the five games, three will be football contests, all of which will be aired live from Franklin Field. The three contests are against Holy Cross, Princeton and Cornell, on October 6, November 3 and November 17, respectively. All games begin at 12:30 p.m.

The other two events are soccer games, one each of men's and women's. Men's soccer will make its TV appearance in an away game against Temple on September 26 at 3:30 p.m. Women's soccer will compete on CN8 at Monmouth on October 24 at 3 p.m. Both games will be aired on a tape delay.
