Saturday Action in Baseball, Softball, Boys LAX

Penn Charter senior Adam Holland has a new good luck charm . . . the bell in the legendary clock tower.

Friday, as the bell was ding-ding-ding-ding-dinging 5 p.m., Holland delivered a two-run single during an 11-1, five-inning win over Episcopal Academy.

Saturday, at the exact same moment, he came to bat in the eighth inning of a game versus Caravel Academy (Del.). The bases were loaded because senior James Gabor had just earned an infield single thanks to serious hustle to beat out a grounder.

Then, just like that, PC owned a 5-4 win.

Holland also hit an infield grounder and busted down the line. The throw short-hopped the first baseman, who couldn't make the scoop, and the Quakers rushed onto the field to swarm Holland and celebrate their 11th win without a loss.

In game one (noon start), PC had topped Bergen Catholic (NJ), 7-2.

The respective wins went to senior starter Matt Gorman and junior reliever Mike Siani. Senior Joey Lancellotti was the overall hitting star, going 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI. Senior Steve Lorenz added three apiece of hits/RBI.

Beyond rightfield (3 o'clock start), the softball squad hosted Lawrenceville School (NJ) and racked up a 9-4 triumph.
Freshman Anastasia Lewis went five innings for the win and junior Ava Nicolucci served as the closer. Soph Abby Manion and seniors Brigitte Gutpelet (double; others were singles), Emily Zurcher and Faith Fenton all stroked hits worth two RBI in an eight-run fourth. That outburst enabled the Quakers to erase a 3-1 deficit.
Boys lacrosse traveled to Haverford School to battle St. Augustine Prep (N.J.) in a showcase event.
After trailing by 9-4 at halftime, PC rallied back within 11-10 before winding up on the short end of a 13-11 score.
Junior Ryan Dickson fired home four goals. Senior Luke Stansfield offered two goals and one assist.
