PHILADLEPHIA - Penn started its Ivy campaign off on the right foot last weekend, defeating Brown, Harvard and Princeton by convincing margins to post a 3-0 record in Ancient Eight action heading into the second weekend of conference duals. The big winner over the weekend was Mark Rappo at 125 pounds as the junior defeated Garrett Frey of Princeton who was ranked ahead of him. Also, Scott Giffin returned from injury and is back in the lineup as the regular season winds down. Where did those two move in the national polls? Let's take a look...NCAA Coaches Panel (Jan. 20)

However, the final EIWA Rankings in two weeks surely will change based on the recent wins by Rappo and Giffin...Kyle Cowan has entered the top six at heavyweight, his first conference ranking of the season...He most likely is looking at next Saturday's match with No. 4 Kevin Lester of Columbia as a big match in terms of rising to the four-seed at EIWAs.
