Inter-Ac Tennis Champs!

William Penn Charter School Philadelphia Quaker Inter-Ac tennis

It's barely past mid-October and Penn Charter already owns its first Inter-Ac team championship of the 2016-17 school year.

Deserving of praise? Girls tennis!

Thursday featured an away match vs. Notre Dame and coach Rose Weinstein's crew claimed a 5-2 triumph, finalizing its league record at 6-0 and its advantage in matches at 34-8.

This is PC's first girls tennis crown since the fall of 2000; that squad also was perfect in league play. Weinstein took control of the program in the fall of 2005. 

"This team is extremely happy with the win," noted senior Natalie Williams, one of the captains. "Teamwork made this happen. We are a strong team that managed to work together well. Everyone was a team player and was satisfied with their positions on the team. Everyone contributed in some way."

In this contest, the winners were soph Brinlea La Barge (first singles, by 6-0, 6-1), senior/sister Schuyler La Barge (second singles, by 6-1, 6-1), soph Leila Sor (third singles, 6-0, 6-2), senior Olivia Brody-Bizar/junior Meredith Bernstein (third doubles, by 6-1, 6-3) and juniors Lizzie Drebin/Gwen Davis (fourth doubles, by 4-6, 6-4, 10-8).

The first and second doubles squads were bested in tiebreakers -- junior Chloe Master/Natalie (first, by 6-3, 5-7, 7-10) and senior Jennie Reisman/freshman JJ Birnie (second, by 6-3, 3-6, 6-10).

"We tried not to put any pressure on ourselves and just had fun," Natalie commented. "Although we did lose some today, we all rejoiced in the win for team, and let any and all disappointments go.

"We all are just happy that we won the Inter-Ac with an undefeated season. With the help and coaching of our amazing coach, Rose Weinstein, we were able to strive and be better tennis players for ourselves, for each other, and for Rose. Go Penn Charter!!"
