After falling just short of their first league title since 2010, Penn sprint football returns much of its starting defense from 2015.

It only took 12 minutes for freshman Kitty Qu to get the signal to put on her gloves. After her team went two goals down just minutes after the season-opening whistle, Penn coach Nicole Van Dyke called up the untested newcomer for her first taste of collegiate soccer. That was over two weeks ago, and Qu has played every minute of action since. “It’s cool for me because it’s taking a lot of responsibility as a freshman,” the Foster City, Calif., native said. In the three games that followed that opening 3-1 loss to Maryland on August 28, Qu has held on to her starting spot, showing that her stint in goal was not a one-time occurrence. And with Qu in goal, the Quakers (3-1-0) have opened their season with fantastic momentum.

It’s not uncommon for graduating seniors to leave holes in a team’s roster -- but this particular one is about the size of the Grand Canyon. With the departure of all-world runner Tom Awad, Penn men’s track and field will look to adjust to life without the two-time defending Ivy Heptagonal champion.

Penn men’s soccer, still nursing the wounds of last season, nevertheless enters a new year with optimism and a set of fresh, young faces who will look to make their mark on the field.

2015 was a year to forget for Penn men’s soccer. Three wins from 16 games, including just one against a conference opponent.

College sports have two different philosophies when it comes to the buildup to conference play: some teams prefer to ease into the big games, building confidence, while others prefer to test themselves and raise the stakes. Penn women’s volleyball has taken the latter approach this year. Over the next three weekends, the team will play in three tournaments against a myriad of opponents from across the country.

For a typical head coach, summer vacation might signal the time to hit the recruiting trail, scheme for the upcoming season and enjoy the rare opportunity to unwind with the constant frenzy of the school year taking a brief pause. But Penn volleyball coach Kerry Carr did things a tad differently.

Kerry Carr could have opted to select her whole senior class as the team's group of captains for a second straight year.

Some people just live to help others. Last year for Penn field hockey, that statement applied to nobody better than Elizabeth Hitti, whose 18 assists in her senior year saw her break both the career and single-season school records in the category.

As far as bitter losses go, this one was a zero on the PH scale. Penn field hockey came into the final game of its 2015 season looking to do something it hadn’t accomplished in over a decade: win a share of an Ivy League title. However, one crushing overtime later, the Red and Blue were forced to settle with a frustrating end to the season.

The program's greatest team in recent memory lost NCAA All-Americans Sam Mattis and Tommy Awad — as well as other star athletes — but perhaps the most notable loss came from the coaching staff that vaulted the team up to its relative success on the Ivy League and national stages in 2016.

Penn men’s basketball unveiled their 2016-17 schedule Monday, and, much like the team, it will look quite a bit different than in past years. The 27-game schedule features 13 games at the Palestra, including the standard seven versus Ivy opponents.
