  • Pair of Penn volleyball freshmen bond over shared high school experience


    A lot of big names come out of Marymount High School in Los Angeles. Kim Kardashian and Olivia Jade Giannulli are just two on a long and very well-known list.

    Flying slightly under the radar of the school’s more noteworthy alumni are the Marymount volleyball program's Taylor Fourticq and Caroline Douglas, both of whom are freshmen at Penn.

    The duo attended the all-girls Catholic preparatory school together for four years before committing to play for the Red and Blue. Their volleyball team has a long history of excellence and has won three California state titles.During their senior year, Fourticq and Douglas almost saw the program add a fourth, as the team lost in the state final. However, they were able to lead their team to a first-place finish at the Nike Tournament of Champions.

    Unsurprisingly, the program is consistently at the top of the list of schools that send volleyball players to compete in the Ivy League. Of their graduating class, Fourticq and Douglas are joined by teammates playing for schools across the country, including UCLA, San Diego, and Colgate.

    Marymount coach Cari Klein credits the recruiting position of the school to their brand of athletes.

    “I think programs might have a lot of academic kids who play volleyball, but it’s a different story when they’re used to winning. Taylor and Caroline are used to winning championships, winning tournaments. They don’t have much losing in their background," Klein said. "They expect to win."

    And win they have. In the first two weeks of the season, the Red and Blue have racked up more wins than their season total from last year. Although the Quakers dropped their to Princeton on Friday, the team started off its season with a six-game winning streak and is looking strong ahead of the first home game this Friday.

    Marymount athletes pay a high price for the success they achieve. With no real offseason, they see a full cycle of training year-round, including summer workouts on the beach and the UCLA track. At the end of their summer season, the players have what they "fine" after a poor week.Pochettino spoke to the media today after Tuesday's Carabao Cup shock at Colchester.He said, "It's okay. We feel disappointed because we expect to win the last three games and we haven't. "We deserved to beat Leicester, it i refer to as “hell week,” which consists of two to three daily practices. When the school year resumes, the team gets in a practice before and after school on some days, in addition to traveling to competitions.

    After their time at such a rigorous program, it is clear that the duo has had a fairly smooth transition to collegiate volleyball.

    “Here, for instance, our weights are at 7:30 in the morning, and that literally feels like sleeping in. I still have my alarm on my phone for 4:57 in the morning called, ‘you got this,’ and I just thank God every morning that that’s never going to be set again,” Douglas said.

    While both have been playing volleyball for 10 years, at times the commits that his move from Southampton to the Reds worked out very nicely.Many fans were skeptical when Liverpool paid a then record sum for a defender to procure Van Dijk.But he made an instant impact and has helped the club to Champions League glory, witment to the sport at Marymount was far from easy. Regardless, they both looked back fondly on their senior night, an event dedicated to those who succeed through four years of the program.

    “At Marymount, volleyball senior night is a huge deal. Girls literally stay in the program for four years just to have a senior night. You get these cute little teddy bears that my mom actually makes, with your jersey, and a ton of stuff that describes you,” Douglas said. “That was definitely my highlight because going through that program is really tough for four years, it’s such an accomplishment and that night is just an accumulation of everything you’ve done and everything you’ve worked for.”

    Within such a demanding program, the athletes inevitably get very close. While in some sports the recruiting process is immensely stressful and can turn teammates against each other as they compete for a limited number of spots, Douglas and Fourticq had a very different experience.

    “Most people aren’t competing for the same spot. Me and Dougie, because we’re different positions, weren’t competing for a specific Penn spot, which made things much less stressful,” Fourticq said.

    After both attended the same sophomore summer camp at Penn, the duo had official visits on the same weekend when the Red and Blue played Princeton. Although they spent the majority of the weekend together, the coaches would separate recruits at times to give them confidential offers to join the team.

    “I remember we didn’t know how to ask each other if we’d gotten the offer. I remember sitting at White Dog [Cafe] and going to the bathroom together so we could be like, ‘sooooo?’’” Douglas said.

    Luckily for them, the two both got offers and committed within 48 hours of each other.

    The relationships built among the Marymount athletes are lasting. When the Red and Blue were playing at the last week, the Marymount team, coming back from a tournament in Las Vegas, realized that Douglas and Fourticq were in their vicinity.

    While on the bus, the players tried to no a late sale for Donny van de Beek.It's been claimed Real Madrid have a deal for the Holland midfielder and will sign him should they fail to land Manchester United star Paul Pogba.But Overmars told SER Catalunya, "Van de Beek will stay with Ajax thiavail to convince the driver to turn around so they could meet up with their teammates.

    “It speaks volumes when the whole bus wants to turn and get a hug from [Fourticq and Douglas] because they know they’re in Riverside. The girls were dying to see them. They’re pretty important people to the program,” Klein said.

    While they certainly embraced the athletic opportunity that Marymount had to offer, Fourticq and Douglas didn’t exactly miss out on celebrity sightings either. Kim Kardashian’s 20th reunion for Marymount fell during their time there.

    “We found out that it was, in fact, Kim Kardashian’s 20th reunion one Friday night at Marymount. Our entire class of volleyball girls were all at Taylor’s house,” Douglas recalled. “We drove to Marymount that night, and I decided that I was going to be the guinea pig, that I was going to sacrifice my life. There was so much security."

    Douglas entered the school under the guise of having lost her wallet. After wandering around for a while, she saw Kim Kardashian from a distance. The experience clearly left an impression on both of them.

    “She was literally posting photos from the seat that I sat in in math,” Fourticq said.

    While Olivia Jade’s presence in the class above them was more of a sensitive subject, the two rattled off a list of celebrities and famous figures that they encountered during their time at Marymount. Now-famous singer Charlotte Lawrence played volleyball with their program.

    Having joined this group of notable alumni, Fourticq and Douglas are poised to contribute both on and off the court as members of this year’s new and improved Penn squad.

  • Last year's early NCAA Tournament loss provides motivation for Penn women's lacrosse


    For most teams in college sports, if you win a conference championship, finish the regular season ranked in the nation’s top 10 and make it to the NCAA Tournament, you’re not going to be too ak Swart says Quincy Promes' goal should have stood in their Champions League defeat to Chelsea.Promes had Ajax 1-0 ahead before the goal was ruled out by VAR to offside."I ordered a window cleaner to clean those VAR glasses and the TV screens for a unhappy with your year.

    But most teams aren’t Penn women’s lacrosse.

    A year ago, the Quakers bowed out of the postseason in a Round of 32 , marking the first season since 2013 that the dynasty didn’t win at least one NCAA Tournament game. Fast forward 10 months, though, and one silver lining becomes clear: as devastating as last May’s result was, that sting only pushed this year’s Quakers to become even better.

    “It definitely gave us a spark before we even needed a spark; it was an unexpected loss that was really hard to swallow,” fifth-year senior Emily Rogers-Healion said. “It made me even more thankful that I had a chance to come back and redeem us, and it gave us even more of a reason to work hard all fall.”

    Heavily favored over the unranked Midshipmen despite playing without injured star junior Caroline Cummings, No. 7 Penn jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the first half. But unranked Navy completely flipped the contest in an 8-1 run spanning both halves to take a 10-6 lead.

    Then-rookies Gabby Rosenzweig and Erin Barry led a frenetic late comeback to cut the lead to 11-10, but that would be the final mark, giving Navy its first-ever win over a top-20 team.

    “It might have been exciting for fans; I don’t think it was that exciting for us,” coach Karin Corbett said. “We wanna compete for national championships, and that was sting Nottingham Forest.Nottinghamshire Live report Forest remain keen on bringing Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback back to the City Ground for a third spell - but are also exploring other options in the meantime.And they are among a clutch of clubsdefinitely tonchester City, not the Reds in the Premier League title race.Liverpool are currently eight points clear at the top but City know what it takes to overturn such a deficit.Heskey told LFC TV: “The pressure's on them [Manchester City] to actually get o early [to be eliminated], so I think all of that has fueled what our goals are for this year.”

    It might have looked like the upset of the decade at the time, but only weeks later, the lacrosse world found out that Navy was no fluke.

    After celebrating their thriller at Penn Park, the Midshipmen’s Cinderella run was only just getting started. Navy ended up making it all the way to the Final Four, even upsetting No. 2 UNC in the quarterfinals. Penn was the only team to even hold Navy under 15 goals in the tournament.

    To the Quakers, this Navy run only added a further burn; they could’ve been making headlines nationwide instead.

    “I was in bed watching that game, because I had just gotten surgery that day. And watching that … we didn’t reach our potential, and that put a fire in our bellies to really work hard this season,” Cummings said. “It could’ve been us going all the way to the Final Four. We completely could’ve ridden that power. But we’re just gonna use that to fire us up for this year.”

    The Red and Blue are backing up those words, and then some, in 2018.

    The No. 6 Quakers hold a stellar 8-1 record so far, with the only loss coming to defending national champion Maryland. Add in Cummings’ return and freshman Zoe Belodeau’s explosion to a team that already returned 93 percent of its scoring from last season has led to a . Rosenzweig has stood out in particular, as she is currently on pace to shatter Nina Corcoran’s school single-season points record.

    On the other side of the ball, has filled the goal in place of 2017 graduate Britt Brown without missing a beat, ranking seventh nationally in save percentage.

    “We have a really good chance to go really far in the postseason this year; this year feels different just because we have so much depth everywhere,” senior midfielder Alex Condon said. “All of our attacking core is scoring goals, making contributions, and we just have more firepower than we did last year.”

    Combine that stacked personnel with a team driven by the pain of last year’s early exit, and it’s no surprise the Red and Blue have so thoroughly dominated their competition so far. This is a team with the goal of titles — Ivy League and beyond —and it has no plans to forget the struggles it’s faced on the way there.

    “You always remember the losses,” Corbett said. “You always have to move on, but they can always be there in the back of our heads. Remember how we felt that day, and we don’t wanna feel that way again.”

  • Men's golf struggles to 11th-place finish at Princeton Invitational


    While most of the golf world was focused on the Masters this weekend, Penn men’s golf had some work to do elsewhere.

    The Quakers finished 11th out of 14 teams at the Princeton Invitational, which is a 54 hole tournament at the par-71 Springdale Golf Club. Penn finished with a total team score of 897, or +45, placing them behind five Ivy opponents in Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Cornell and Columbia, and two spots ahead of Brown.

    The overall result is a step back for the Red and Blue, who had already bested Cornell and Columbia in their last time out at the Towson Spring Invitational on March 25 and 26.

    “I think in general we’re disappointed in our performance,” interim coach Mike Blodgett said. “I think we went out there and saw some of the teams that we consider equal competitors as us, kind of in the same category as us, and we saw our performance fall short of not just what we expected to do on the golf course but what we saw other teams were able to do out there.”

    On the first day, Penn combined for a total score of 596 for the first 36 holes, putting them in 10th place. But a high 301 in the last round on Sunday allowed St. Joe’s to leapfrog from 12th into 10th, pushing the Quakers back one spot.

    For Blodgett, there were several things that went wrong for his team this weekend. Most of them, however, circle back to the team not getting enough time for course practice. Due to the winter weather extending into March, the team could not get the usual amount of time outside, and was forced to adapt its practice style.

    “I think we’re still trying to get into spring golf shape. We haven’t had much opportunity to be outside, or practice the way that we like to this season. So I think every time we go on the golf course we’re just finding out a little bit more about our games and where we are at for the season.”

    The low scorer of the tournament for Penn was sophomore Josh Goldenberg, who shot a combined 222, tying him for 34th place at th tournament.

But a 77 in the final round hurt his final standing.

    Other notable performances from the Quakers included 225s from both junior Carter Thompson and sophomore Zareh Kaloustian, who played in his first match of the year over the weekend.

    With just one more tournament on the schedule before the Ivy Championship, there is a silver lining to this weekend’aptain Laurent Koscielny.Frenchman Koscielny is one of Arsenal's longest-serving players, having been at the club since 2010.Foot Mercato says he is excited by the idea of returning to Ligue 1. It is claimed that Lyon have begun talks with Koscielny s result. The poor play can allow the team to reflect on what areas of their game they need to improve upon and come out hungry to prove they are better than what they just showed.

    “We are going to use this weekend as a learning experience,” Blodgett said. “We had an opportunity to debrief on the van ride home and just discuss what we can improve on, getting ready for next week, and I expect my guys to come out with City attacker Marlos Moreno.The Colombia international, reports O Jogo, is a target for Portimonense.Moreno, 22, signed for City in 2016, though has never featured for the Premier League champions.While on City's books, he has spent time on-loan withfire in their eyes, ready to go next weekend.”

    While the result may not have been the outcome they wanted, not all is lost for Penn men’s golf, as there is still plenty of time to refine their game.

  • Three up, three down: Penn women's soccer ends nonconference slate


    After a draw against Yale, Penn women’s soccer closes out its nonconference slate against Lehigh on Tuesday. Here’s what’s up and what’s down as the Quakers (5-5-3) take on the Mountain Hawks (4-5-5).

    To be frank, she is on fire. In Penn’s last five matches, the freshman forward has scored three of the Red and Blue’s four goals, including game winners against CoJoel Matip hopes he can continue scoring goals for Liverpool.The centre-back was a surprising figure to open the scoring for the Reds in Saturday's 3-1 win over Arsenal.Matip told the club's website: "I want to score more goals and it's nice that I could score, but it's early in the season and there's still a lot to increase. "Maybe I'll get the opportunity to score a few more."lumbia and Loyola (Md.). Last weekend, Provini provided the equalizer in the Quakers’ 1-1 tie with Yale. She currently leads Penn in scoring with seven points on the season.

    Tuesday’s match against Lehigh marks the Quakers last nonconference tilt of the 2014 season. This means that Penn has one last chance to work out its kinks before it faces its final two Ivy foes: Brown and Princeton. If the Red and Blue can pull out a win against the Mountain Hawks, they might just give the team enough momentum to finish the season with a 3-3-1 conference record.

    This season, Penn’s 10 goals have been netted by seven players. Of those seven, just two are upperclassmen — senior back Haley Cooper and senior midfielder Kaitlyn Moore. Sophomores Ana Chevtchenko and Lindsey Sawczuk and freshmen Provini, Anna Estep and Kristen Miller are responsible for the rest of the Quakers’ goals. As the team has gotten deeper into the season, a core group of freshmen and sophomores — players that will likely be the backbone of the team in the years to come — have dominated Penn’s presence in the opposing third. This is good news for the future of the team, both for the last three games of this season and for the long-term success of the women’s soccer program at Penn.

    In Penn’s last nine matches, seven have been decided by one goal or fewer. Thus, it is clear that the Red and Blue are battling through every game. But it seems like they can’t quite make the tables turn in their favor. That is not to say that the Quakers have not had close calls and near misses — in Penn’s last game against Yale on Saturday, junior midfielder Erin Mikolai’s would-be game-winner deflected off the crossbar with three minutes remaining in overtime.

    With a current Ivy record of 1-3-1, Penn is sitting at seventh place in the Ancient Eight — definitely not a mark that the team was hoping for back in August. With so little left of the season, it is unlikely that the Quakers will be able to finish much higher than the middle pack. Yes, the team is young. Yes, the team is injury-ridden. But this year’s performance has been disappointing.

    Ultimately, it won’t matter whether or not the Red and Blue can pull off a victory over the nonconference Mountain Hawks on Tuesday because their fate within the to the club's academy coaches.Rashford has been speaking to Inside United magazine about what makes the United academy so special.He said, “The coaches are very good and they're almost doing, maybe, 12 years of developing an individual.“And in thIvy League is all but sealed.

  • Softball stung by ’Nova in weekend rematch

    Despite a tournament-best 3-1 record this weekend, Penn finished second overall in the Penn Spring Invitational behind Villanova.

    After falling to the Quakers in the tournament opener on Friday, the Wildcats turned the tables in the championship contest on Sunday afternoon, capturing a 3-2 victory at Penn Park.

    The Red and Blue (13-10) swept their opening three games against ’Nova, Rider and Army, and the one-two punch of freshman Alexis Borden and sophomore Mikenzie Voves gave up just two earned runs in 19 innings during those games.

    Meanwhile, Penn’s bats came alive, as Jessica Melendez hit the first home run of the spring season at Penn Park against Villanova on Friday afternoon, which lifted the Quakers to a 3-1 win.

    Though the Quakers did not finish the weekend unscathed, the tournament revealed a team that is poised to hit its stride just in time for Ivy League competition.

    Saturday morning, Penn lit up Rider for nine runs, including back-to-back home runs from Melendez and Georgia Guttadauro. The team cruised to a five-inning, mercy-rule 9-1 victory as Voves picked up the complete game win.

    The matchup against Army, however, was a different beast entirely. While Penn had eight hits against Rider, the team managed just two against Army. But patience at the plate yielded 10 walks and six runs, allowing the Quakers to overcome an early 3-0 deficit to ultimately secure a 6-3 victory.

    In the Sunday afternoon game against the Wildcats, it was Villanova who came from behind. In the bottom of the fourth, freshman Karina Rios put Penn ahead, 2-1, with an RBI single up the middle, scoring Jessica Melendez, who had reached base on an error.

    However, Villanova responded with a solo home run from Briana Fujii in the sixth to tie the game again, 2-2. The Wildcats scored the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh on a double to right field off the bat of pitcher Molly Manning, who held the Quakers scoreless in the bottom half of the inning to seal the deal.

    The four games this weekend marked the first long stint the Quakers have played at their new stadium at Penn Park, and the experience received glowing reviews from the team, despite the overcast weather Saturday and Sunday.

    “I’m pretty sure I speak they're to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.The Mirror says City are still in the hunt for £80million-rated Maguire – but must offload Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala to fund the deal.The domestic treble winners are wary of Financ for everyone when we say we don’t really like playing away anymore,” Melendez said.

    Though the playing field seemed flawless this weekend, the Quakers defense was not, racking up nine errors. Ironing out mistakes like these will be one of the focuses of practice in the next week, according to coach Leslie King, who is confident the team will be ready when Ivy League play begins Friday against Brown.

    In fact, King sees somrsene Wenger is happy seeing Andre Villas-Boas in charge of Marseille.Wenger feels Villas-Boas took the Chelsea job too soon.He said, "He may have been a little young at the time when he came to Chelsea. He took little break and sometimes it does note of these slip-ups as a sign of a team that is going to hit its stride at just the right time.

    “I don’t want to be peaking at the end of March,” King said. “I want to be peaking at the end of April going into May.”

  • W. Hoops Notebook | Highs and lows


    Going into Saturday's matchup at Cory.The Swede, on-loan from Atalanta, has been linked with winter market moves to Wolves and Arsenal this week.But Lucarelli, while also discussing former Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian, insists Kulusevski will stay for the entire season.He nell, the Penn women's basketball team had scored more than 63 points in a game just once all season.

    That "high" came at a "low": in an 81-70 loss to Temple that marked the beginning of a month-long, eight-game losing streak.

    In the first half against Cornell, Penn came out flat again, managing just 24 points and trailing by 11 at the break.

    But in the second half, the Quakers caught fire, torching the Big Red for a season-high 55 points on 73 percent shootingl return to Liverpool this week to assess his latest injury.The Wales international, on loan at the Cherries this season, was not able to face Chelsea on Saturday due to "strange" leg injury.Asked for an update on the Wrexham-born star's injury, Howe (16-for-22) from the field and 6-for-10 from three-point range.

    Coach Pat Knapp gave his team a pep talk at halftime, but ironically, senior Carrie Biemer said it was his emphasis on defending Cornell's three-point shooters that helped spark Penn's offense.

    "We had said that this was a winnable game, and we wanted to turn things around for ourselves," Biemer said. "Once we came out and hit a few shots . we just kept getting really confident and everything fell on top of each other."

    Fouling out. Because the Quakers do not have a strong, dependable presence in the frontcourt and only sparingly use dribble penetration, they have not always consistently gotten to the free-throw line.

    Last weekend, Harvard and Dartmouth combined to commit only 27 fouls, and against Harvard the free-throw disparity was 25-to-11 in favor of the Crimson.

    Foul trouble once again plagued at least one Penn player, as Biemer fouled out in only 13 minutes while trying to contain Columbia star forward Judie Lomax.

    "It was a pretty crazy game," Knapp said. "We got poor position, and we know offensively that we need to do different things."

    Against the Big Red, the Quakers' offensive surge was aided mightily by 17-for-21 shooting from the line in the second half, while Cornell attempted only 17 free throws in the entire game.

    Cornell and Penn tallied 19 fouls apiece, although 10 of Penn's fouls came from only two players, as Caitlin Slover and Katarina Lackner both fouled out.

    "You can question how the games have been called if you'd like, they've been very physical," Knapp said. "You could also question our defense. Are we in position so that we don't foul? And the third thing is, get the ball inside, take the ball to the basket, be aggressive."

    Powerful rebounding. The Quakers gave up an eye-popping 15 offensive rebounds to Columbia, which is even more staggering et was delighted to score for Sheffield United in Monday's 1-0 victory over Arsenal.The summer signing from Bournemouth endeared himself to the Blades faithful after his 30th minute strike sealed a memorable victory at Bramall Lane.He told Sky Sportswhen considering that Penn only corralled 15 defensive rebounds of its own.

    The battle for the boards has been a struggle for the team all season, but 6-foot-1 sophomore Erin Power was a bright spot this weekend.

    "Good rebounders really are made and developed; they're not born, and they don't always have size or tremendous jumping ability," Knapp said. "What Erin has done that has developed over her career is she goes and gets the ball. . That's just effort and desire, so I really like Erin's defensive rebounding."

    Power led the team in rebounding in both games (albeit with only five boards against Columbia) and recorded her first career double-double with 11 points, 13 rebounds and six assists against Cornell.

    "She goes after the ball so hard," Biemer said. "And she is a lot taller and has a lot more length than a lot of the people that she's guarding. So she has the ability, she has the size advantage and with the intensity on top of that, it can be a huge advantage over a lot of opponents."
