The Golden Rams have competed four times this season,
winning three dual meets, and placing third out of four teams at the Ken
Anderson Invitational during their most recent trip to Philadelphia last
weekend. West Chester’s best performance this season was on Jan. 26 in a 187.000-185.600
win over SUNY Brockport at home.
These two teams last met one another during a quad-meet at
Penn on Feb. 9, 2011. The Quakers placed first with a 187.925 and West Chester
placed third with a 182.750.
This will be the last road tune up for the Red and Blue
before they host their one and only home meet of the season next weekend, when
they welcome Bridgeport to The Palestra for a dual meet on Feb. 17.
