'Student-Athlete Spotlight' Series Profiles Jon Berkowsky

In conjunction with the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, the Penn Sports Network will produce weekly installments of its "Student-Athlete Spotlight" series throughout the remainder of the 2008-2009 academic year. Each episode will provide a back story on a member of one of Penn Athletics' 33 varsity programs.

This week, Ron Berkowsky is profiled. The junior fencer from Sicklerville, NJ overcame an ACL injury during his freshman campaign to earn First-Team All-Ivy League honors in 2007-2008. The four-time national champion at the high school level aims to help the Quakers to an Ancient Eight title, while improving his individual performance as well.
