Dooney Fieldhouse Continues to Progress

Displaying image.jpeg

We start the installation of the wood floor next week. Bleachers seating over 900 will soon follow. We are excited about all the improvements this summer. 

Congratulations to Jack Mahoney

Jack earned USA Swimming's Scholastic All America Honors. To qualify, he had to have a minimum 3.5 GPA (weighted for advanced courses) and have at least a Junior National qualifying time in one or more events (his swim in the 50 meter freestyle this summer qualified him.) This means that he qualified for this honor as a sophomore in high school!

Go Charter!

The size, complexity and success of athletics at Penn Charter are evident on a fall or spring afternoon when the fields are pulsing with players, coaches, officials and fans and the air carries the sound of cheering, an umpire's whistle or the crack of a bat on a baseball.

The numbers tell some of the story, too.
