Penn Welcomes New Student-Athletes

PHILADELPHIA - Monday evening was a busy one at Franklin Field, as Penn Athletics welcomed the newest additions to the Red and Blue family as the New Student-Athlete Picnic. The annual opportunity to meet Quakers competing in other sports, as well as Penn administrators and staff, served as a kickoff to life as a Penn student-athlete for winter and spring competitors and a much-deserved break from training and live action for fall teams already in the middle of their seasons.

The Penn Sports Network was at the picnic and was able to score interviews with some newcomers finding their way around University City as well assome veterans of life at Penn such as senior basketball player Jack Eggleston (representing SAAC) and Director of Athletics Steve Bilsky W'71.
