Girls Tennis Shuts Out GA

William Penn Charter School Philadelphia private Inter-Ac cross country

For the moment, Penn Charter's girls tennis team is the toast of the school.

That's what happens when a PC squad blanks the archest of rivals, Germantown Academy. The 7-0 shutout occurred Tuesday and highlighted a busy afternoon.

The Quakers' singles winners were sophomore Brinlea La Barge, senior sister Schuyler La Barge and soph Leila Sor. Doubles triumphs came courtesy of senior Natalie Williams and junior Chole Master, ninth grader Jackson Birnie and senior Jennie Reisman, senior Olivia Brody-Bizar and junior Meredith Bernstein, and junior Elizabeth Drebin and senior Hunter Smith. Only one match required three sets.

Girls soccer hosted Agnes Irwin and rolled to a 5-2 victory. Junior Gi DeMarco (three) and soph Ally Paul (two) combined to hammer home all five goals.

The cross country teams competed in meets at Belmont Plateau.

The girls were involved in a tri-meet and came away with split decisions – a 24-33 victory over SCH Academy and a 28-29 loss to Agnes Irwin. Freshmen Sophia Solomon and Alicia Newman and soph Mary McDavid finished third, fourth and fifth out of 52 runners. Photos.

Malvern got the better of the boys by a 24-31 score. Senior Harper Pollio-Barbee (shown above) took second in 18 minutes, 21 seconds. Other scorers were senior Josh Patton (fifth), soph Timur Serbest (seventh), junior Blaise Ciarrocchi (eighth) and frosh Luke Jaspan (ninth). Photos.

Golf competed in an Inter-Ac Invitational hosted by GA and placed fifth. Juniors Brian Isztwan (37) and Noah Schwartz (39) were alone in posting strong rounds.

Field hockey was blanked by Agnes Irwin, 5-0. Senior Daisy Slawek, the team manager, made note that senior goalie Janelle Sullivan "had many impressive saves and handled (Irwin's) pressure and persistence with admirable composure!"

Boys water polo lost at Hill School, 16-5.
