Don’t look now but the Ivy League is getting tough! Cornell has been the class of the league and the EIWA for the last two decades and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Princeton has emerged as a major player in the conference, as well as nationally. But now, after two excellent recruiting classes, could Penn be the next team that steps up from the Ivies? Head Coach Roger Reina is heading into the third season of his second stint has the leading man for the Quakers. In his first go ‘round at the helm for Penn, the team was a dominating force, winning EIWA titles every year from 1996-99. Under his direction, a pair of national champions and an Olympic gold medalist were crowned. Since his departure, following the 2005 season, the Quakers slowly fell down the ranks of the EIWA and out of national prominence. Now with assistance from the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center and a two consecutive top-15 ranked recruiting classes, it looks like Penn is headed on the fast track towards contending in the EIWA and retaking their place in the national rankings. Penn returns a pair of national qualifiers who made the tournament last season as a freshman along with a handful of other talented prospects. Here’s what we can expect from the Quakers lineup in the 2019-20 season.
