Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse Highlights

penn charter, baseball, inter-ac, quaker school, philadelphia private schoolForty school years ago, John Bartram's football defense was tagged the Zeroes Heroes as it posted seven consecutive shutouts and 10 in the first 11 games.

Time to resurrect that nickname when referring to Penn Charter's pitchers.

Tuesday, in a 10-0, six-inning win over visiting Father Judge (coached by ex-PC multi-sport star Kenny Devenney), the Quakers racked up their fifth consecutive shutout while extending their scoreless-innings streak to 34.

Senior right-hander Matt Gorman, pictured above, did the pitching this time, allowing three hits and striking out seven. He also saved the No-Runs-for-Them Day in the fourth, when he gloved the ball just in front of the out-of-play line near PC's bench. It squirted over that way after an off-line throw. Another 12 inches and the runner on third would have been waved home by the umpires.

Senior Joey Lancellotti powered the offense, launching a three-run homer over the fence in dead left-center. Junior Mike Siani went 3-for-4 with three RBI.

On the road, softball rolled past Episcopal, 14-4.

Winning pitcher Faith Fenton, a senior, supported herself with a two-run triple and classmate Brigitte Gutpelet crushed a grand slam.

Girls lacrosse also played Episcopal, at home, but dropped a 15-4 verdict. Pictured below, seniors Macaul Mellor (two goals, one assist), Courtney Cubbin, Alex Kuper, Perri Keehfuss and Hannah Griffith were honored, as were their parents.
