Lacrosse sends stars to Baltimore MENâ€™S LACROSSE Feeney and Bellinsky represent Quakers in USILA All-Star Game BY HOLDEN MCGINNIS Sports Editor Penn menâ€™s lacrosse was represented at Baltimoreâ€™s M&T Bank Stadium on Monday. However, it wasnâ€™t quite the way they had imagined it. â€œ[ T he USI L A A l l- St a r game] was right before the championship game,â€? 2014 College graduate and goalkeeper Brian Feeney said. â€œIf someone told me I was going to be in M&T Bank Stadium on Memorial Day, I would have hoped it would have been for the big game.â€? Fellow 2014 College Graduate and midfield Drew Bellinsky joined Feeney on the South team as the pair had one final hurrah to their collegiate lacrosse careers. Their team prevailed in a close contest, edging the North team by a score of 17-16. â€œI knew most of the players that were there,â€? Feeney said. â€œIt was a great day to play lacrosse, just to do that with a bunch of guys that Iâ€™ve grown up playing with or against was a great experience for me, especially because my roommate [Bellinsky] came with me.â€? Though many have the experience of playing against familiar foes, Feeney and Bellinsky had the unique experience of playing in their
Success sets a blueprint for future MCGINNIS from page 8 It might not always end in success (see menâ€™s basketball coaching changes in the past decade), but repeated disappointment needs to be addressed directly .

Feeney said. â€œIt was great to finish my collegiate career with someone who I actually played with.â€?

son to mess with the success that Karin Corbett and Leslie King have found with their teams, for example. Third, sometimes itâ€™ll just take a little time. Itâ€™s certainly surprising that menâ€™s lacrosse was able to turn things around so much this season after a few years of mediocrity. Were there any significant changes? Not particularly, this yearâ€™s team was fairly similar to the year before, but the continued growth of the players and a tough schedule led Penn to a four seed in the NCA A tournament. When M. Grace Calhoun takes over on July 1st, sheâ€™ll have a lot on her plate, but looking back at the successful spring season sheâ€™ll definitely have something to build on.

it by [my job], but I do have aspirations to somehow continue my career,â€? Feeney said. â€œThereâ€™s plenty of summer tournaments that Iâ€™m doing and plenty of leagues, but if I were allowed to, Iâ€™d try out for an MLL team.â€? For the Penn players, the All-Star game wasnâ€™t the only Baltimore festivity as members of the team arrived on Saturday for the All-American banquet. At the banquet, three 2014 Quakers â€“ Feeney, Zack Losco and Maxx Meyer â€“ earned third-team honors. This was
Successful season despite playoff loss TYDINGS from page 8 staff was just as potent and the bullpen helped close important games. But what was most impressive of this team was the camaraderie it displayed on a weekly basis while taking the field in the hidden gem of campus at Meiklejohn. There was excitement at the stadium. There was ridiculous dancing whenever Brebnerâ€™s at-bat music was on. There was a true team on the field instead of a group of individuals, with that team fighting for a singular goal that it ultimately came just short from achieving. So while the plaque in Meiklejohn will likely change and rightly display Yurkow as Pennâ€™s top man (especially now that Iâ€™m pointing it out), there wonâ€™t be much more than that

BY STEVEN TYDINGS From The Daily Pennsylvanianâ€™s sports blog, THE BUZZ Penn softball had a banner year in 2013 but it looked like the Quakers were a sure bet to fall this year after an important senior class graduated. However, despite a majority of the players on the roster being underclassmen, the team found a way to repeat atop of the Ivy South and made its way to the winner-takeall Game 3 of the Ivy League Championship Series. While Penn ultimately lost that final game and ceded the Ivy title to Dartmouth, coach Leslie King and her team proved that Penn is still a program on the rise and that 2013 was not an anomaly. With that in mind, here are some of the players and moments that defined the upstart 2014 Penn Quakers. The Yale sweep: Going into their March 31 matchup with the Elis, the Red and Blue were playing just like a freshmenladen squad is expected to play, going 4-11 in their first 15 contests. The team had lost seven straight games going into the two-game set at Penn Park and was in desperate need for a turnaround. So when Penn swept the Elis by identical 3-0 margins, it was a big moment for the team. Junior A lexis Borden and freshman Alexis Sargent each pitched shutouts, combining to give up just nine hits in 14 innings. Sargent also contributed with her bat, hitting two home runs to power the Red and Blue while fellow freshman Leah Allen belted a long ball as well. Player of the Year â€” Leah Allen: Penn lost so much talent to graduation that things looked somewhat bleak heading into the year. While Borden, Pennâ€™s all-time leader in wins
to immortalize Yurkowâ€™s first year as coach. Yet that doesnâ€™t seem right. Just because the Red and Blue finished a game behind Columbia (which now goes to Miami for the NCAA Tournament) and didnâ€™t get the chance to play for the Ivy crown doesnâ€™t mean this season didnâ€™t make a big impact on the program. Penn baseball went from cellar dwelling in the Gehrig Division to top contenders all thanks to a change in philosophy and demeanor, as well as a few remarkable strides forward. While players like Brebner, Brandon Engelhardt and Pat Bet wonâ€™t be a part of next yearâ€™s squad, it isnâ€™t hard to see Yurkow continuing to guide his team to contention. And the 2014 season was the unforgettable first step in that process.

and strikeouts, was expected to carry the load in the pitching circle once again, there were legitimate questions as to who would hold down the fort on the offensive end. Allen made all those worries wash away, hitting .383 for the season while setting Penn program records for home runs (13) and runs batted in (43). Allen took home Ivy Rookie of the Year and made Pennâ€™s offense feared within the conference. Moving forward, it should scare everyone in the Ivy League that Allen could get even better during her sophomore year. Most ind ispensable â€” Alexis Borden: Borden proved herself once again, shrugging off early season losses to post a nother strong season at pitcher. The junior posted 12 wins to go with a 2.26 earned run average. She also pitched every game of the ILCS, winning Game 2 and falling just short in Game 3. Teaming with Sargent, Penn rode both pitchers named Alexis to a strong season. Player Penn will miss the most â€” Elysse Gorney: While Pennâ€™s senior class was smaller in 2014 than in 2013, the class still had a large impact, especially thanks to a first-team All-Ivy catcher in Gorney. The senior batted .304 on the year and upped her game in Ivy play, batting .356 during that 20 game stretch to help propel Penn to its third straight Ivy South title. Gorney was also the Quakersâ€™ captain and her leadership will certainly be missed. Her presence was a noticeable one after spending two years as team captain and the rising senior class will need to find a way to replace her. Penn will also miss seniors Kirsten Johnson and Kayla Dahlerbruch, who was named the teamâ€™s Defensive Player of the Year.

Softball on the rise: season in review
the first time that a Quaker had been named to the first, second or third teams since 1988 and the first time that three Penn players had been named since 1984. For the Quakers to turn things around in the past few years, it took more than individual talent. In the eyes of Feeney, itâ€™s the team leadership and decision-making that has developed during his career. â€œWe decided amongst ourselves that [the social side] wasnâ€™t something coach Murphy had to go ahead and [get involved in]â€?, Feeney said. â€œThe players themselves got involved in making decisions that are best for the team without the help of the coaches and everyone abided by that.â€? And for Feeney and the rest of the Class of 2014, that fateful Ivy League tournament title will always overshadow their early NCAA tournament exit and their individual accolades. â€œItâ€™s tough to go out the way we did in the first round, but in the end Iâ€™m always going to remember the Ivy League championship. Thatâ€™s been our number one goal since I was a freshman, we had come close to it, but never made it past that first round hump,â€? Feeney said. â€œNone of the accolades that me or some of the other guys received at the end of the season will amount to winning that championship as a whole and as a team.â€?
