PC Bats Aid Inter-Ac Cup Win

Even with the school year over, Penn Charter is still creating positive sports vibrations.

Wednesday morning at the Urban Youth Academy Field, in deep South Philly, the Inter-Ac/Independents squad topped Delaware North, 4-1, in the first round of the 31st annual Carpenter Cup Classic and four PC guys, pictured above, were involved.

Mike Siani, a rising junior, collected base hits in all three of his at-bats while adding a run scored and a stolen base. Kenny Bergmann OPC '16 went 1-for-3 and also scored a run.

The team's manager is PC coach David Miller and Justin Hanley, one of his Quaker assistants, is also a part of the CCC staff.

In a quarterfinal Friday, 10:30 a.m, at the same site, I-A/Indy will meet Delaware County. The semis and final will be played next week at Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies.

It's expected that lefty Brendan "Chooch" Cellucci, a rising senior, will be available to pitch on Friday. He was unavailable for the opener due to a previous baseball commitment.

Of the photo — L to R Justin Hanley, Kenny Bergman, Mike Siani, David Miller — that accompanies this report, Hanley quipped, "Michael has half the infield dirt on his jersey."
