Penn Charter hosted league-leading Haverford School on Tuesday afternoon.  After a grueling 2+ hour match, Haverford finally secured a 4-3 win over PC.  Of the seven matches, four matches went to 3 sets.  Scoring impressive victories for PC were DreShaun Jarmon at #2 singles, Ben Richards at #3 singles, and Geoff Zlobinsky and Nirvikar Singh at #1 doubles.  
Earlier this week, PC squared off against Germantown Academy for the first time this season.  PC eased to an overall 7-0 victory, all in straight sets.  The #2 doubles team of Greg Zlobinsky and Max Sanders and the #3 doubles team of Norman Williams and Nate Ewing rolled to decisive victories for PC.  The Quakers will travel to GA on Thursday for the return leg of this season's series with GA.
