As we enter the final weekend of the 2015 season, Penn volleyball is already looking towards the future.
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.
It’s time to say goodbye.
There’s no place like home. There’s no time like Homecoming.
Statistics have always been an integral part of sports.
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.
Two days. Six sets. One win. One loss.
This weekend, Penn volleyball will have some intimidating guests at its Halloween party.
In 2015 Ivy League volleyball, the only certainty is that nothing is certain.
In the third set of Penn volleyball's matchup with Princeton on Saturday, coach Kerry Carr stepped onto the court to call a timeout with her team trailing 13-9, hoping to give it a chance to refocus in a pivotal set.
Penn volleyball has a lot to prove this weekend.
The story of the 2015 Ivy League volleyball campaign has been one of balance and unpredictability.
After one turn through the Ivy League, Penn Volleyball sits at 3-4.
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.
As the old adage goes: “Actions speak louder than words.” However, the exception to this rule is the Penn volleyball bench, whose words are pretty darn loud.
The changing seasons bring about new colors around campus, with greens turning to oranges and browns, Red and Blue fading in favor of a shade of pink.

Many Penn students will be relaxing at home this weekend for fall break, but the volleyball players will be on campus, and they certainly won't be resting.
Unlike last year, Penn volleyball coach Kerry Carr has the veteran firepower needed to keep the team from being reliant on freshmen.
After an average start to the season dotted with wins and losses, the Quakers hit their stride on its first weekend of league play.
