(09/21/23 1:48am)

Last week, Penn football played four complete quarters en route to a 20-6 win over Colgate (0-3). But the cruel irony of the college football season is that regardless of last week’s result, the Quakers (1-0) have to do it all again for the next nine weeks. On Saturday, Penn will head back on the road to face another Patriot League foe: Bucknell (1-1). 

Standing guard: Inside Penn football’s offensive line’s retool for upcoming season

(09/14/23 1:03am)

Last year, Penn football’s offense was in the top half of the Ivy League, scoring 26.6 points per game — the most since 2017 — en route to an impressive 8-2 record and a second-place finish in the Ivy League. Whether the Quakers can sustain that success will largely depend on how well the offensive line can dominate the trenches.

With a new school year approaching, so too is a new season for Penn sports.

Whether you’re a freshman new to campus (in which case, welcome) or a senior looking to catch a few games before graduation, here’s most of what you need to know in order to get up to speed. 

Crain | This summer, I’m grateful for the Ivy League

(08/14/23 3:12am)

For most of the past few summers, I’ve watched with increasing anxiety the successive waves of realignment that have shaken much of the foundation of college sports. This summer, however, things reached a boiling point. The Pac-12 was shattered by a flux of departures, with some member schools moving to the Big Ten and the Big 12, with others left searching for a future home or a way forward. 

Penn's dual-sport athletes face unique challenges but rare rewards

(07/20/23 5:28am)

For most athletes, being able to play one sport at an NCAA Division I level takes years of training and commitment. To compete in two, balancing completely separate seasons and training regimens, takes a whole new level. Nevertheless, for a pair of Quakers — rising junior Scott Dochat and rising sophomore Gavin Griswold — it's all worth it.

In the first few weeks after graduating, most of the Class of 2023 were preparing to start jobs, or enjoying a few months of freedom before taking the next steps in their academic or professional careers. But for three members of Penn men's lacrosse's graduating class, the next step of their athletic journey was just beginning. 

Upset of the Year: Women's basketball defeats Columbia

(04/27/23 5:36am)

While not many would think that a game where the victor extended its win streak from eight to nine an upset, Penn women’s basketball’s win over Columbia certainly counts as one. When the team entered the Palestra on an early January Saturday night, the Lions were 13-2 and had just defeated Princeton, the team that would ultimately go on to win the Ivy League Championship. The Quakers swiftly halted the Lions' momentum, though, defended home court and emerged with a 71-67 victory.
