Penn is 5-5 overall this season and 1-3 in Ivy play. Most recently, they fell to a very strong Princeton team, 9-0, last Wednesday. However, the Quakers hope to build off their gained experience to give Harvard its first League loss of the year.
The Crimson are 4-2 overall and 3-0 in Ivy play, led by senior Colin West at the top spot who paces the squad with a 5-1 record. Harvard holds a 62-2 all-time series edge over Penn, including last years 5-4 thriller. The match came down to the No. 7 spot in which the Crimson's Frank Cohen topped Porter Drake, 3-1. A rematch this weekend is possible.
Dartmouth is 8-5 overall and 0-3 in the Ivy League. Last year Penn rallied from their loss to Harvard to top the Big Green 5-4 with Drake and Mark Froot winning their matches to seal the win for Penn.
Drake leads the team with six wins this season, while Froot, James Clark and Trevor McGuinness each have five to their credit.
Following this weekend, the Quakers will compete in the Team Championships in New Haven, Conn., Feb. 19-21.
