Tuesday's Sports Roundup

William Penn Charter School Philadelphia private Inter-Ac field hockey

Every coach wants to debut with a win.

Steve Wagner (above), Penn Charter's new boss for field hockey, did so Tuesday in comfortable fashion.

The Quakers bested visiting Archbishop Ryan, 3-0, in their opener as junior Catherine McInerney, senior Leslie Goodman and ninth grader Elisabeth Ross, a national-level squash player, scored the goals and senior Janelle Sullivan prevented 'em.

PC first dented the scoreboard with 12-plus minutes in the first half as Goodman sent a corner to the top of the circle, roughly 16 yards out, and McInerney powered the ball into the cage. In all, the Q's fired 13 shots on goal. Senior Christina Vahey (four) and McInerney (three) led the way in that category.

Down and across School House Lane, girls soccer hosted Friends' Central and carved out a 3-1 triumph.

Goals went to sophomore Ally Paul (assist by classmate Emma Maley), ninth grader India Barnes and eighth grader Kait Haughey. Junior Mack Listman (first half) and senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis split the netminding duties. Senior Macaul "Mac Daddy" Mellor, as always, uncorked some outrageously lengthy throw-ins.

Boys water polo hosted La Salle and dropped a 18-12 decision. Seniors Emmet Foley (four) and Logan Wolfington (three) led PC in scoring while Max Bender dealt three assists.

Girls cross country headed to Belmont Plateau and claimed two wins — 27-30 over Baldwin and 24-31 over Hill School. PC's top five runners were ninth grader Sophia Solomon, sophomore Mary McDavid, ninth grader Alicia Newman, senior Rosie Kaufman and soph Hadley Ball.

Boys cross country also competed at Belmont Plateau. The results were a 26-31 win over Hill School and a 20-42 loss to Haverford School. The overall No. 1 runner was PC senior Harper Pollio-Barbee.
