Details, Photos for Girls Lax and Softball
On one of the few days this month with beautiful weather, there was still some precipitation.
While posing for pics with classmates Meredith Chernak and Sarah Fleming, senior Hannah Fox, a winner of 13 varsity letters over five years, could not help but release a few tears after realizing she'd played her final game on Penn Charter's campus.
In the quarterfinal round of the PAISAA lacrosse tourney, the Quakers bested Friends' Central, 16-11, and Fox, as you could have predicted by now, played a major role. Aside from scoring five goals, she won 10 draws.
With 7.1 seconds left in a topsy-turvy first half, Chernak scored a free position goal to provide a 9-7 lead. The Quakers then chalked up three consecutive goals to open the second half, thanks to junior Macaul Mellor (shown above), Fox and junior Courtney Cubbin. FC trailed by at least three scores the rest of the way.
Cubbin (four) and Mellor (three) followed Fox on the scoring list. Chernak, junior Perri Keehfuss and sophs Greer Guyer and Lex Joseph added one apiece. Ninth grader Emma Wilson distributed two assists. Junior Jamillah Buie was the netminder.
Details for PC's semifinal appearance have not been finalized.
Softball hosted Sussex Tech, a powerhouse from Georgetown, DE, and suffered a 5-1 setback. None of the Quakers' six hits went for extra bases.
