Wins for Lacrosse and Tennis

Think about it . . . How many high school basketball players score as many as 1,813 career points?

Think about it some more . . . How many ALSO tally 100 goals in lacrosse?

Penn Charter senior Hannah Fox is now a member of that special club. Thanks, Darci Borski, for the photo of Hannah with varsity coach Colleen Magarity.

As the visiting Quakers pinned a 13-8 defeat on Germantown Academy in an Inter-Ac contest Tuesday, Fox scored twice and that output upped her number from 98 to 100. To boot, she also controlled seven draws.

Three juniors – Perri Keehfuss, Courtney Cubbin and Macaul Mellor – pumped home three goals apiece, sophs Greer Guyer and Lexi Joseph also had matching stats (one goal, one assist), and ninth grader Emma Wilson dealt two assists.

This win was especially important to Colleen Magarity, PC's first-year coach. She's a former GA superstar.

"We had a great first half and we need to work on playing a complete game – 50 solid minutes instead of 25," Magarity commented. "We came out so strong, going up 10-2, then let them come back in the second half. Overall, it was a great win, but we still have a lot to work on to get ready for our next game."

Also Tuesday, boys tennis cruised to a 6-1 win over visiting SCH Academy in an Inter-Ac opener.

Three points were earned in perfect fashion. Junior Greg Zlobinsky (No. 1) and soph Ben Swanson (No. 2) did so in singles, as did the No. 1 doubles team of soph Alex Shipon and eighth grader Tom Bradbeer.

Seniors Luca Fortina and Nate Ewing won easily at No. 2 doubles (6-1, 6-1) while junior Tyler Schwartz and soph Jake Cutler did so at No. 3 doubles (6-1, 6-0).

"A great start to the Quakers' 2016 Inter-Ac campaign," said coach Phil Stevens.

Boys lacrosse fell to visiting Episcopal Academy, 10-2, in an Inter-Ac opener. This was the boys' first official contest (beyond a scrimmage) on the new turf field and the initial goal was scored, with 6:23 left in the first quarter, by senior Drew Gallant. A while back, Keehfuss scored the first goal for girls on the new surface.

PC's other goal went to senior Cody Sweeney off a feed from junior Mac Wilson.
