Wins for Girls Lax and Boys Tennis

Sometimes, the best thing a coach can do is make sure an outrageous number of goals are NOT scored.

Colleen Magarity did so Monday.

Girls varsity lacrosse bested visiting Cheltenham, 19-4, in a non-league game and the Quakers probably could have racked up a total in the mid-30s. Instead, often in the second half and sometimes late in the first, they passed and passed and passed some more to make sure all possessions seemingly lasted forever.

And when Cheltenham's goalie held the ball for long stretches, the Quakers did not exert pressure.

Senior Hannah Fox (seven), junior Courtney Cubbin (four) and ninth grader Molly Visco (two) tallied multiple goals. Seniors Meredith Chernak and Sarah Fleming, junior Macaul Mellor, sophs Greer Guyer and Lexi Joseph and eighth grader Mackenzie McDonough added one apiece. Mellor had two assists while Fox and Joseph halved six draws.

Boys varsity tennis also stayed home and chalked up a 5-2, non-league victory over Harriton.

The Quakers' two setbacks were accompanied by asterisks. Junior Greg Zlobinsky, at No. 1 singles, and junior Nate Ewing, part of the crew at No. 2 doubles, were forced to withdraw during their matches due to illness.

Ben Swanson (No. 2 singles) won by 6-2, 6-2. Senior Nirvikar Singh (No. 3 singles) won by 6-4, 6-0. The only close match involved sophs Justin Ko and Josh Toll at No. 4 doubles. They won, 10-7, in a third set tie-breaker.
