Friendly Friday Wrap-Up

Penn Charter's girls tennis no longer has a chance to claim another Inter-Ac League championship. But good vibrations are still important and coach Rose Weinstein's squad created them Friday.

In a home match vs. Notre Dame, the Quakers posted a 4-3 win thanks to two wins apiece in singles and doubles.

The singles winners were junior Brinlea La Barge and soph JJ Birnie and the former was absolutely perfect at 6-0, 6-0.

Repping the doubles were seniors Chloe Master/Lizzie Drebin and senior Meredith Bernstein/freshman Olivia Schwartz.

Girls soccer and field hockey also played on campus — SCH Academy was the dual opponent — and were bested by 1-0 and 3-0, respectively. The soccer goal was not yielded until four-plus minutes remained.

Girls water polo traveled to Hill School for an invitational event cleverly called "Waterpolooza" and seized a pair of wins.

In game one, PC drubbed Exeter, 12-0, as soph Sam Boyes connected on all five shots she attempted. Classmate Hayley Hunt added three goals and the steals/turnovers breakdown was almost perfect (14-1).

Game two yielded a 10-3 triumph over Perkiomen Valley. Hunt and junior Molly Visco halved eight goals while juniors Abbey Quinn and Zoe Tierno combined for 12 saves.

Boys water polo visited Malvern and fell by 11-4. Senior Sean McLafferty scored twice.
