Harvard's superior sprint on the deep homestretch left Navy one boat-length behind at the finish and Penn 1 1/2 lengths back as the Crimson oarsmen retained the Adams Cup in a tight race among some of this country's foremost college varsity eights yesterday on the Schuylkill. The Midshipmen from Annapolis jumped away to a lead of one-quarter of a length at 100 meters into the race, with Penn leading Harvard by two seats. Navy clung to its lead passing under the Strawberry Mansion Bridge but Harvard moved ahead of Penn by a half length.

Sixth seed Mike Zimmerman, a Harvard senior, won the singles title in the Eastern Regional Intercollegiate Tennis Championships yesterday by rallying to defeat top seed Mark Booras of West Virginia, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, at Princeton University's Jadwin Gym. Zimmerman was overpowered by Booras' serves in the first set but handled them better in the second and third. "My tactic of attacking his serve seemed to rattle him in the second set," Zimmerman said. The finalists will compete in the National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, to be held Feb. 6-9 in Minneapolis.

BOSTON - When Penn and Harvard last met, they played one of the great games in recent Ivy League history, an 83-82 double-overtime Crimson win at the Palestra. Friday night, with the game on Harvard's floor, the Crimson made sure there was no such drama. With its first Ivy League title in sight, Harvard made more than 60 percent of its field-goal attempts and cruised to a 79-64 win at a jam-packed Lavietes Pavilion. "We didn't do a good job of getting out to shooters," Penn guard Zack Rosen said.

For Chris Lorditch, there wasn't one defining moment when the game plan was altered and the best football college offer was supplanted by best football/academic offer. But the Archbishop Wood senior does recall the lightbulb-over-head moment that led to his committing to Harvard this last weekend. "People have this tendency to look down on Ivy League football," said Lorditch, a member of The Inquirer's all-Southeastern Pennsylvania first team, "but it's not like that at all. " Lorditch, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver, had an offer from Syracuse - his runner-up - but somewhere along the recruiting road, Harvard became the choice.

St. Joseph's Prep and La Salle may be the strictest of rivals, but that doesn't always extend beyond high school. John Gazzola found this out firsthand. The Prep offensive lineman committed to Harvard last weekend, and it was with the help of a La Salle grad that Gazzola was able to claim acceptance to one of the most prestigious universities in the country. John Butler, an assistant with the Crimson and a La Salle product, helped recruit the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Gazzola.

Though this season has been below Penn's usual standards, the Quakers have found one bit of consistency during the Ivy League portion of their season.  They have split every weekend of conference back-to-backs so far. The Quakers kept the streak going on Saturday, storming to an early lead and holding on down the stretch to pull off a 75-72 upset over Ivy title contender Harvard at the Palestra, after a disappointing loss to Dartmouth on...

Seven-year-old Monique Soden scanned the crowded infield yesterday, looking for Meredith Rainey among the hundreds of competitors at the 1990 Outdoor Heptagonal Championships. "Where's Merry?" she asked Walter Lawrence, Rainey's grandfather. "Well, she's either resting or getting a blood transfusion," he said. In reality, Rainey, the Harvard senior who is the defending NCAA 800-meters champion, was seeking some shade and a moment's respite between her third and fourth events.

When she saw the 11:30 a.m. Thursday start time for the Penn Relays college women's shot put championship, Nikki Okwelogu worried that she might not be able to get warmed up in time. But after about 15 minutes of competition, the junior from Harvard showed that she would be just fine. She executed a throw of 56 feet, 33/4 inches on her second attempt and saw that mark stand up to earn her the victory at the Mondschein Throwing Complex outside Franklin Field. "I was a little disappointed at how early it was because it kind of takes me a while.

Harvard University researchers are projecting major health benefits if Mayor Kenney's proposed tax on sugar-sweetened beverages is enacted. Within a few years of the three-cents-an-ounce tax's beginning, they forecast, nearly 2,300 diabetes diagnoses would be prevented annually, and eventually, 36,000 people a year would avoid obesity. Over a decade, about 730 deaths would be averted, and close to $200 million saved in health spending. "It is just a total winner of a policy from a public health perspective," said Steven Gortmaker, who led the analysis, being released Thursday.

BOSTON - A 22-game winning steak? No problem. On the road? No problem. Ivy League title at stake? No problem. Penn handed Harvard its first loss since 2013 on Saturday, upsetting the Crimson, 35-25, in a showdown atop the Ivy standings. With the victory, the Quakers (6-3, 5-1 Ivy) have a chance to claim at least a share of the Ancient Eight title with a win over 1-8 Cornell next weekend. "I'm very proud of this team and all we've accomplished," coach Ray Priore said. "But we have some unfinished business to do. " Penn came out of the gate quickly, going up, 14-0, in the first 10 minutes on a pair of rushing touchdowns by junior quarterback Alek Torgersen.

A MEANINGFUL game in November. That's all most teams can really ask for. Especially ones that went 2-8 the season before, after losing the final four games the season before that. And then started 1-3 this year. None of that matters now. Penn (5-3, 4-1 Ivy League) and first-year coach Ray Priore have won their last four, including an overtimer last week at home over Princeton. If they win out, they'll get no worse than a share of the title. They close against winless Cornell at Franklin Field on Nov. 21. But Saturday, they have to go to unbeaten Harvard, which is ranked 12th in FCS and has won 22 straight.

Penn football coach Ray Priore separated his hands a few inches apart on Wednesday afternoon, signifying the margin of error his team had last week in an overtime win against Princeton. It took a fourth-quarter goal line stand and a blocked field goal at the end of regulation to keep Penn's Ivy League hopes alive. And now, Priore said, it is "money time. " The Quakers (5-3 overall, 4-1 Ivy) play at Harvard on Saturday at noon. A win will likely seal a share of the Ivy League title as Penn ends the regular season at home against winless Cornell.
