Key Win for Baseball

Thanks to yucky weather, Penn Charter's three consecutive home games in Inter-Ac varsity baseball have been stretched over a two-week period.

Since the Quakers' record during that span is 3-0 and their scoring advantage is 14-3, no one is complaining.

Consecutive victory No. 3, by a 5-2 score, came Thursday vs. visiting Germantown Academy.

Senior Kenny Bergmann crunched the most important hit, a two-run double to way-out-there center, while juniors Adam Holland and Dom Toso (Dom, above, is greeted by teammates after great play on a grounder up the middle.) had two hits apiece and combined to score three runs.

Senior lefty Santino Primerano (4 1/3 innings) got the win with relief help from classmate Frank Driscoll and junior Matt Gorman (save; both outs on whiffs).

Primerano is now 4-0 for the season and has issued just four walks in 25 1/3 innings.

PC's Inter-Ac record is 4-4 with games remaining Tuesday vs. Haverford School (home) and Thursday vs. SCH Academy (away). 

Also Thursday, girls varsity lacrosse made the journey to Episcopal Academy and suffered a 13-7 loss.

Senior Hannah Fox scored five goals and won four draws. Juniors Macaul Mellor and Courtney Cubbin notched one apiece in the goals/assists categories and eighth grader Hayley Hunt made 19 saves.

"We stayed in the game solely because of her," noted coach Colleen Magarity.
