The Quakers fashioned a three-sport sweep against visiting Baldwin, and did so in dominant fashion. And off campus boys and girls water polo and boys cross country also topped their opponents.
Field hockey rolled to a 5-0 victory as juniors Catherine McInerney (two), Leslie Goodman, Christina Vahey and Courtney Cubbin handled the scoring. McInerney also dealt two assists and senior Janelle Sullivan twirled the shutout.
Soccer also notched a shutout, by 2-0, thanks to junior Mack Listman. PC's first half goal was scored by eighth grader Kait Haughey on a feed from sophomore Mia Monheit. The second goal, posted with 11:40 remaining, was a classic example of teamwork and precision. Soph Ally Paul chased down the ball on the right side, tight to the end line, and curled a cross beyond the left post to freshman Sara Shipon. She kicked the ball toward the middle and junior Gi DeMarco headed it into the goal.
Tennis triumphed by a 5-2 score to remain perfect in Inter-Ac play. The singles winners were sisters Brinlea and Schuyler La Barge, a soph and senior respectively. Successful in doubles were senior Natalie Williams/junior Chloe Master, senior Jennie Reisman/junior Meredith Bernstein and juniors Gwen Davis/Lizzie Drebin.
At Belmont Plateau, boys cross country claimed a 27-29 win over SCH Academy in rather unusual fashion. Though senior Harper Pollio-Barbee won the race in 17 minutes, 58 seconds, the Blue Devils captured the next three spots. No sweat. PC guys placed fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth – senior Joshua Patton, soph Timur Serbest, frosh Blaise Ciarrocchi and frosh Luke Jaspan. The girls cross country were topped by Episcopal, 32-23. Frosh Sophia Solomon, soph Mary McDavid, frosh Alicia Newman and soph Hadley Ball finished fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively.
On Merion's West Course, golf placed second in the latest Inter-Ac Invitational, as hosted by Episcopal. The Quakers shot 230 while Haverford School was first with 223. Juniors Brian Isztwan and Noah Schwartz shot matching 36s for the Quakers. Soph Dylan Topaz (37) and junior Matt Barkann (39) also fared well.
In water polo, the boys won at Episcopal, 8-3, and the girls bested visiting Germantown Academy, 13-9. For the boys, seniors Logan Wolfington (three) and Emmet Foley (two) led in scoring and classmate Alex Malitas made 12 saves. Foley added five steals and Max Blender, yet another senior, dished three assists. On the girls side, Emily Zurcher had six goals, Molly Visco and Greer Guyer had fourth-quarter goals to seal the victory, the first time in four years that PC beat GA. Goalie Hannah Calistri had 14 saves in a stellar performance.
