Up and Down Friday

Penn Charter's girls tennis team looked to sew up the Inter-Ac championship Friday, and did so in can't-do-it-any-better fashion.

Coach Rose Weinstein's Quakers blanked visiting SCH Academy, 7-0, and every match required just two sets.

The singles competitors were soph Brinlea La Barge at first, senior Schuyler La Barge at second and soph Leila Sor at third. The doubles combos were senior Natalie Williams and junior Chloe Master at first, senior Jennie Reisman and freshman JJ Bernie at second, senior Olivia Brody-Bizar and junior Meredith Bernstein at third, and juniors Lizzie Drebin and Gwen Davis at fourth.

The La Barge sisters won by identical scores of 6-1, 6-0. The Quakers are 5-0 in league play with a match vs. Notre Dame remaining. Their advantage in sets is 29-6.

After rolling to a 4-0 record in non-league games, football opened I-A play with a 21-20 overtime loss to visiting Haverford School.

Touchdowns were scored by junior Terence Thompson, soph Edward Saydee and senior Chris Tucker while senior Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky passed for two of those. Tucker's TD occurred in OT. An attempt to win the game with a two-point comversion was unsuccesful. More football photos.

Field hockey and boys soccer dropped 3-2 decisions to SCH Academy.
