Winter Athletes Celebrated

Winter Athletes Celebrated
Two rows of high school athletes totaling over 40 stand holding their awards.

Director of Athletics Michael Brooks welcomed Upper School students, teachers, and winter athletes' families to an afternoon athletics awards ceremony in the Graham Athletics and Wellness Center on March 8. He thanked coaches, the wider athletics team, and gave a special shoutout to John Burkhart OPC '72.

"He has served as the voice of the Quakers once again this year. But, more than that, he continues to preserve the legacy of PC Athletics. Thank you, Burky, for all that you do!"

Brooks also gave special recognition to the exceptional achievements of several athletes:

  • Girls squash players Alex Jaffe and Sam Jaffe, despite playing the highest level of competition in the nation, have won all but one match in regular season play. Sam Jaffe was named the Inter-Ac MVP.
  • Track athlete Alli DeLisi won the Pennsylvania Indoor Track & Field 800 meter Championship, breaking her own school record. The 4x400 relay team of Alli DeLisi, Dani Shipon, Veronica Lentz and Michaela Poland  broke PC's school indoor record.
  • New records were set in the pool including:
    • Eva McIver Jenkins in the 50 free and the 100 free
    • Molly Lo in the 100 back
    • Alex Zoldan in the 500 free
  • Wrestling's successful year included three meet wins and PC's most-ever wrestlers to qualify for nationals. 
  • Mark Butler scored his 1,000th point early in the basketball season, quickly followed by Aleah Snead joining the 1,000 points club. Snead also was named Inter-Ac MVP.
