Senior Dylan Gergar played a crucial part in Penn men’s lacrosse's 14-13 overtime win on Saturday against No. 7 Duke. Gergar has been on a tear in the first two games of the season, contributing 10 goals. Additionally, the Ivy League named him the Player of the Week for the first time in his career. 

On Saturday, Gergar recorded six goals in the come-from-behind victory. Two of his six came in the fourth quarter when the Quakers were in desperate need of a couple of goals. Gergar’s two goals were able to cut the Blue Devil's lead down to one goal, creating the opportunity for the game to head to overtime. The Annapolis, Md., native also had three ground balls and 11 shots on goal for the Quakers.

Penn men’s lacrosse will next be in action on Saturday, March 5, against Penn State in Charlotte, N.C. 

Honorable Mention: Sophomore Wyatt Henseler of Penn baseball led the Quakers to a 2-1 series victory against Texas A&M this weekend. Henseler went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a home run that drove in three runs in the series-clinching game. The Emmaus, Pa., native also earned Ivy League Player of the Week for his efforts. Baseball will be back in action this weekend against Wofford.
