Tuesday Provides PC/GA Preview

Though the real PC/GA Day won't take place until Saturday, Nov. 12, Tuesday offered a mini-version, and the Quakers were perfect in soccer.

The boys triumphed, 1-0, on a late goal by junior Andrew Morris, who connected with under two minutes remaining from as far away, perhaps, as 30 yards. Another major moment took place about two minutes earlier when senior goalie Jay Jennings used a classic dive/sprawl to make a save on a penalty kick.

The girls went the boys one better, at 2-0. The first half score came courtesy of soph Ally Paul, who pumped home a rebound after taking a pass from freshman India Barnes. The play began with a corner kick by soph Emma Maley. Then, with 19 minutes left in the second half, junior Gi DeMarco converted a shot from roughly 20 yards; the ball sailed over the goalie's reaching-high hands. Senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis earned the shutout.

In boys water polo, the Quakers dropped a 14-13 decision. Seniors Emmet Foley (five), Logan Wolfington (four) and Evan McFadden (three) dominated the scoring while classmate Max Blender dealt four assists and made five steals. Yet another senior, Alex Malitas, allowed no fourth-quarter goals.

Field hockey was blanked, 5-0, but coach Steve Wagner was pleased by the play of two seniors, goalie Janelle Sullivan and defender Courtney Cubbin.

"Because of Janelle's efforts, we were able to play our style of play with more confidence," Wagner told the team's manager, Daisy Slawek. "Courtney's ability to defend and move into space created a forward momentum."

Girls tennis spent the day at Episcopal Academy and fared the best among all Inter-Ac teams in the individual tournament!

First place finishes were achieved by soph Brinlea La Barge (first singles), senior sister Schuyler La Barge (second singles), senior Jennie Reisman and freshman JJ Birnie (second doubles) and senior Olivia Brody-Bizar and junior Meredith Bernstein (third doubles).

Soph Leila Sor placed second at third singles. Third place efforts were posted by junior Chloe Master and senior Natalie Williams (first doubles), and the fourth doubles team of junior Lizzie Drebin and her rotating partners, junior Gwen Davis and senior Hunter Smith. Special thanks to Natalie for providing these details!
