Fab Start for Girls Lacrosse


Thanks to all-time careers at Germantown Academy and Northwestern, Colleen Magarity is quite accustomed to winning.

 . . . And her stint as the coach of Penn Charter's girls lacrosse varsity is off to a fabulous start.

Under cloudy skies and spotty light drizzle Tuesday, Magarity and the Quakers opened the season by rolling to a 16-6, non-league win over visiting Friends' Central.

Soph Alexis Joseph (pictured above), who recently made a verbal commitment to Duke, pumped home five goals while senior Meredith Chernak and juniors Macaul Mellor, Courtney Cubbin and Perri Keehfuss contributed two apiece. Mellor and Keehfuss notched assists and the latter scored the game's first goal.


Perri goes down in school history as the first to score for girls lacrosse on the new turf field.

Jamillah "Jay" Buie, a junior, had a great day in goal.

While at Northwestern, Magarity starred for teams that stormed to an 85-5 overall record and captured three NCAA championships. She spent the past three seasons as an assistant at the University of Colorado, helping to build the program from scratch. Colorado is now ranked in the Top 20.

"I was extremely happy with the girls, especially on the draw controls and ground balls," Magarity said. "Macaul, Greer (Guyer) and Alexis did a great job dominating the draw and adapting to the change of Hannah Fox (thigh injury) not being able to play. Winning the 50/50 balls and the draw is a huge focus of mine and I am proud of how they performed against a very talented Friends' Central team."
