“Unfortunately you don’t get to play defense in swimming.”
When Penn swimming heads to New Jersey for its first Ivy tri-meet with Cornell and Princeton this weekend, a hot topic will be the presence (or absence) of hair on Big Red swimmers’ legs.
Penn men’s swimming took care of business in dominating fashion last Friday at home against Columbia and again on Saturday afternoon against Villanova at Sheerr Pool.
Although the waters of Sheerr Pool are usually kept at a balmy 79 degrees, Penn swimming will try to heat things up this weekend.
Their biggest meet may still be months away, but the Quakers will finally have a chance to get their feet wet this weekend.
The Penn swimming season will get underway when the women head to New York to face Columbia on Friday before heading to Baltimore, where they will be joined by the men's team, as both squads face off against UMBC on Saturday.
Both teams are coming off fourth-place finishes in last year's Ivy championships.
