This weekend at the Palestra, Penn gymnastics took on Cornell, Brown, and Ursinus in the team's home opener. The Quakers were hoping to top their performance from last weekend, when they scored 190.000 and finished second.
Here are a few of those impressive athletes who can make a big impact in their respective events this upcoming weekend.
The Quakers' newcomers have been a major part of the team's success this season. Freshmen Ava Caravela, Sydney Kraez, and Natalie Yang have all proven themselves on the mat.
From sparkles and mesh, to the elaborate red and blue designs, a lot goes into the Penn gymnastics leotards.
It is her growth as a captain and a leader that is truly remarkable and has even taken Moore herself by surprise.
The Quakers, who scored 190.100 team points, faced off against Temple (194.150), Ursinus (174.175), and Ithaca (185.750) on Sunday in Philadelphia, placing second behind the host Owls.
The Bulldogs came out on top on Saturday, as they bested Penn, 193.775 to 192.350. But even though they weren’t able to oust Yale, the Quakers improved their point totals in three of the four events.
Penn gymnastics opened the season on Sunday in College Park, Md. to compete against the hosting Terrapins, West Chester, and Cortland State. The Quakers finished third in the meet with a score of 190.55.
At its core, the Palestra is a gathering place for members of the Penn community. No matter if the event is basketball, gymnastics, volleyball, or wrestling, the arena does its job of bringing people together.
Penn beat its best team score of the season with a mark of 193.925, and also had standout performances from gymnasts competing individually, including a first team All-American performance from junior Caroline Moore.
In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, Penn gymnastics's big day at Nationals, women's lacrosse's offensive explosion, and some shutdown pitching from baseball make the list.
So how did I manage to do it? What could I possibly have asked to get the heart and soul of Penn gymnastics to finally break? “Is there anything you aren’t good at?”
Penn gymnastics will be competing for the final time this weekend, as they head to Denton, Texas for the USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships.
Penn women’s gymnastics senior Alex Hartke executed her famous floor routine one last time as an individual at this year’s NCAA Regionals this past weekend at Penn State.
This weekend, Kyra Levi and Alex Hartke will represent the Red and Blue at the NCAA Regionals hosted by Penn State.
For their strong performances this year, the Red and Blue’s Alex Hartke and Kyra Levi earned individual event spots at the NCAA Regionals, becoming the first Quakers to do so in five years. Both will compete at Penn State on April 7, and event winners will advance to the national finals.
In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, Penn women's lacrosse got a stellar offensive effort, women's track breaks records, while baseball and softball defenses feature.
The No. 58 Red and Blue secured their fourth-highest score of the season at 193.200, but it wasn’t enough to compete with a record-setting group of opponents at the ECAC Championships at the Palestra. No. 52 Yale won the meet with a school record 195.325, and the Quakers took fourth place in the six-team competition.
At ECACs, the Quakers will have the chance to take on rivals Brown, Cornell, Temple, William and Mary, and Yale. Although they’ve had meets against these teams during the regular season, the stakes are now much, much higher.
