Spring Sports Awards and Highlights

Softball won the Inter-Ac with an impressive record of 12-1 and only two losses in the season, and the Quakers won their second consecutive PAISAA championship title. Penn Charter's speedy crew duo Sally Stanley and Kelsey White raced at Nationals in Ohio and placed fourth, and the PC crew team had two top-ten finishes at the Stotesbury Regatta. Varsity baseball had a strong season but lost a heartbreaker in the PAISAA quarterfinals against Mercersburg Academy. Tennis battled to second place in the Inter-Ac and Nirvikar Singh was honored by the Inter-Ac tennis coaches with a prestigious sportsmanship award. Penn Charter hosted the Inter-Ac Track and Field championships on our new 8-lane track and the boys finished second in the league. Highlights at both the Inter-Ac and PAISAA championships were junior Akeem Blake in the high, long and triple jump and Felicia Robinson's triple jump that was roughly two feet longer than the second-best mark. Chris Tucker clocked 11.19 seconds in the 100 meter dash and took home a gold medal at the Inter-Ac champs.
