Summer Sports Update

Three members of Penn Charter's softball team hit the big stage Tuesday, playing for the Inter-Ac League in the first round of the Carpenter Cup Classic.

The I-A squad topped Philadelphia PCCAF, 6-4, then lost to Suburban One/Bicentennial, 13-2.

Rising junior Brigitte Gutpelet was a whirlwind, going a combined 4-for-6 with two triples, a steal and three runs scored. Classmate Faith Fenton went 3-for-5 and pitched a scoreless inning in Game 1. Rising soph Ava Nicolucci recorded the Game 1 win. Though she allowed four runs over four innings, only one was earned. She also made a Game 2 mound appearance.

In the boys CCC baseball, the Inter-Ac/Indy squad advanced to the quarterfinal round and dropped an 11-2 decision to Delaware County. Rising junior Mike Siani went 2-for-3 with a triple and one RBI, rising senior Brendan Cellucci allowed one run (unearned) in 1 1/3 innings and Kenny Bergmann OPC '16 was the starting catcher.

Also recently, rising junior Mason Williams and rising soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes are featured in this story (second section) about a basketball team camp and the girls hoops squad got off to a 2-1 start in a summer league at Gwynedd Mercy.
