The thought of having to perform this balancing act is enough to make any confident time-manager quake in his or her boots; however, there is one subset of student-athletes that have a particularly difficult run of things. They are the minority — or maybe you just never see them because they are tucked away on the east end of campus coding into the waning hours of the morning. They are the engineer-athletes.

In more ways than one, it’s a new era for Penn volleyball. Sure, it’s easy to point out the absences of five senior captains from 2015 – players that accounted for four of the team’s top five in kills, not including Ivy League assists leader Ronnie Bither.

Ask any civilian on the street who the nation’s premier power couple is, and you’ll probably get some varied responses; Kim and Kanye, Beyonce and Jay-Z and Brad and Angelina are among many names that might get thrown out there. But within the realm of Penn Athletics, the answer is quite simple: Bob and Juli.

Much like the stature of the players, the sphere of recruitment is much smaller for Penn sprint football than with many other sports. Since the team largely eschews the nationwide recruiting effort of many other Penn teams, most players hail from the metropolitan Philadelphia and South Jersey area.

For the record — they’re identical. A pair of Penn women’s cross country runners have been tearing up the trails in tandem, but their connection goes much deeper.

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.
