Penn Cricket Club participates in tournament during spring break

While some students will be spending spring break basking in the sun on a beach in Florida, Penn’s Cricket Club will also be enjoying the warmer weather in the “Sunshine State” competing in a cricket tournament.

The Cricket Club will be participating in the American College Cricket Spring Break Championship tournament in the Fort Lauderdale area March 15-20. The club participated in the tournament for the first time last year, and are returning in hopes of winning the competition and bringing a trophy back with them to Philadelphia, “Last year, we performed well, but this year we will not be satisfied without the trophy,” says Saksham Karwal, captain of the Penn Cricket Club.

At least 32 college cricket clubs from across the United States are expected to participate in the tournament.
