As spring semester ended and students prepared to embark on their various summer journeys, one women’s soccer player had reason to be especially excited. Erica Higa, a sophomore midfielder for the Red and Blue, traveled to Rwanda alongside fellow Penn Athletics representative coach Kerry Major Carr of women’s volleyball and around ten other Penn students and faculty as part of the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Rwanda Gashora Program. The program was created to explore the possibilities of using solar energy and information communication technology in low-resource communities in developing countries.

Same, same but different. The typical American collegiate experience is four years. While some deviate from that path and finish early or late, a majority of students at Penn find themselves on a similar track.

Dig. Set. Kill. The success of a volleyball team’s offense often relies on the relationship between the setters and the outside hitters. Penn’s primary setter, senior Ronnie Bither, has spent the past four years working to make sure the Quakers' offense runs smoothly.

The Red and Blue had a rough weekend on the road, dropping a hard-fought match with the four-time-defending-champion Bulldogs, 3-1, before Brown handed Carr's squad one of its most convincing defeats of the season, a 25-18, 25-18, 25-23 sweep in Providence.

Penn volleyball knows the sting of a massive upset. Fortunately for the Red and Blue, they won’t have to wait too long for a chance to dish one out of their own. Only six days after a stunning upset at the hands of Columbia — the 279th-ranked team in Division I RPI, worst among Ivy League teams — the Quakers (9-8, 3-2 Ivy) will travel to Yale to take on the four-time defending conference champions on Friday night, before finishing their doubleheader at Brown on Saturday. “We struggled with our blocking and our defense, and those are usually points that we’ve been pretty solid with,” coach Kerry Carr said about the surprising 3-1 loss to the Lions, in which the Red and Blue hit only .145.
