PC Sports 4-for-5 on Wednesday

Between full contests and resumptions, PC's varsity squads racked up a 4-1 record on Wednesday.

Boys track rolled to a 71-51 win over visiting Malvern Prep.

Senior Sean Foley, continuing his impressive bounce-back from a severe shoulder injury last fall, won the shot put with a distance of 46 feet, 3 inches. Thomas Freitag, the other senior winner, clocked 4:44 in the 1600.

The junior winners were Chris Tucker (11.0 in the 100) and Edgar McIlvaine (10-0 in the pole vault).

The young bucks also came through. Sophs Tzion Jones (38-2) and Marqui Johnson (23.7) triumphed in the triple jump and 200, respectively.

Boys lacrosse completed a 7-5 win over visiting Germantown Academy. All but the final 7:41 was played Tuesday before foul weather intervened. Senior Drew Gallant scored three goals and classmate Sean McKee, back from injury, played well in the net.

"It was good to get him back," coach Pat McDonough said. "He made a bunch of good stops. (Wednesday) the defense did a good job because GA probably had the ball for four-five minutes."

Softball tamed Archbishop Carroll, 8-1, in a non-league game.

Junior Faith Fenton allowed three hits while walking one and collected two RBI, as did senior Dev Loftus (3-for-3, double) and soph Grace Stansfield. Junior Brigitte Gutpulet went 4-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored. The Quakers totaled 14 hits.

"Very crisp game. Only one walk by both teams," noted coach Doc Mittica. "Lots of good defensive plays on both sides."

Boys tennis topped visiting Friends' Central, 4-1, in a non-league match.

Senior Nirvikar Singh, at No. 3 singles, stormed to a 6-0, 6-0 victory in what coach Phil Stevens described as "well under an hour." The top doubles teams, No.1 Tom Bradbeer (freshman) and Alex Shipon (soph) and No. 2 Luca Fortina (senior) and Justin Ko (soph), each lost only one game while coming close to Singh's feat.

Soph Ben Swanson, at No. 2 singles, kept battling and battling and (deep breath) battling and . . . In two-plus hours, he came from behind to win his match 6-7, 6-2, 10-7 in a third-set tiebreaker.

In a tough, two-day contest, baseball fell at Germantown Academy, 4-2. The game had been halted after 2 1/2 innings Tuesday with the score at 1-1. Wednesday's RBI went to junior Brendan Pell (sac fly).
