A PC Friday: Phils, Lax, Softball, Baseball

Three up, one down. Not a bad Friday, overall.

Plus, sophomore Reece Whitley, headed for the Olympic trials in the breaststroke, threw the first pitch at Swimmers Night at the Phillies. Lots of Penn Charter fans in the stands enjoying Reece's moment and the salute to Jackie Robinson. 

Back in the neighborhood, boys lacrosse made the short jaunt to SCH Academy and rolled to a 13-6 victory.

"We certainly came out of our offensive shell," said coach Pat McDonough. "And (freshman) Gavin Tygh did a really good job with the faceoffs; pretty sure he only lost one. Also, our defense was a solid unit."

Though girls varsity lacrosse bested Baldwin, 8-7, also in a road game, don't count coach Colleen Magarity among the elated.

"Not our best game," she noted. "Baldwin came out hard and played well. They wanted it more and it showed. Fortunately, we were still able to come out with the win, but we need to be getting better every day. We did not take a step forward. Hopefully, at practice (Saturday) we can continue that process forward and learn from (this one)."

Senior Hannah Fox pumped home four goals. Junior Macaul Mellor added two while senior Meredith Chernak and junior Courtney Cubbin contributed one apiece.

Softball also visited Baldwin and triumphed, 9-2.

Junior Faith Fenton allowed six hits, but walked none and received error-free support from her fielders. Sophomore Grace Stansfield paced the offense with a double and three RBI. Senior Dev Loftus lashed a triple.

Baseball hosted SCH Academy and found itself on the wrong side of a 4-1 score.

The Quakers finally scored in the seventh inning as sub Sammy Siani, a freshman, drew a bases-loaded walk. A flyout ended it. Junior James Gabor and soph Mike Siani, Sammy's brother, evenly divided four of PC's five hits.
