Students would rather take a PE class or join a club sport than join a varsity team or watch a varsity game, which translates to meager crowds at sporting events and little funding for athletics. Still, students who are involved in sports praise the coaches and play their sport with the same intensity that they devote to academics. Varsity teams play against Haverford, Swarthmore, Franklin & Marshall, Dickinson, Gettysburg, Muhlenberg, Ursinus, Washington, McDaniel, and Johns Hopkins. Many teams also compete in Seven Sisters Tournaments. Reasons for playing range from wanting to learn an exciting new sport to wanting to be part of a competitive team. Members of many sports teams form sub-cultures of their own—throwing their own parties, eating together, and of course, spending many hours practicing together.
If you’re a stellar female athlete in search of the glory of being cheered on by thousands of fans and being carried off of the field at the end of the game, then this isn’t the school for you. Your friends might come to a few games, but more often than not, your biggest fans will be your fellow teammates and your coach.
