Recap on PC/GA Day Wins

Penn Charter claimed the Competition Cup at the conclusion of the 129th PC-GA Day thanks to a 5.5 to 4.5 advantage in the 10 competitions that are now part of this rivalry. Which team, you ask, faced the least competition?

Let's go with girls varsity tennis. That outfit rolled to a 6-1 win. Singles wins were claimed by No. 1 Schuyler Le Barge  (junior), No. 2 Brinlea LeBarge (her sister) and No. 3 Leila Sor; Brinlea and Leila are both ninth graders. The Nos. 1, 3 and 4 doubles combos also won. Their names/grades, in order: senior Paige Hodges and junior Natalie Williams; sophs Chloe Master and Meredith Bernstein; soph Lizzie Drebin and junior Hunter Smith. Hodges and Williams, who finished the season unbeaten (major props!), earned MVP honors.

Boys varsity water polo powered its way to a 16-7 victory as senior Jake Brogan, the game MVP, fired home eight goals. Boys varsity soccer appeared headed to overtime as the game rolled on and on with neither team finding the net. Then it happened. With roughly three minutes left, junior Max Jacobs (game MVP) accepted a right-to-left pass from soph Andrew Morris, gained control by flicking the ball to himself and, from roughly the left post, made sure to direct it into an open portion of the goal. Junior Jay Jennings earned the shutout and the players celebrated by racing across the field to share the joy with energized student supporters.

Earning an important half-point was girls soccer varsity. That team battled to a 2-2 tie through 90 minutes. And remained tied after double OT. Maggie Boyes, an eighth grader, scored both goals by lofting semi-far shots over the goalie's reaching-up hands. Dominique DeMarco won PC's share of the MVP trophy.
