Packed Squash Day Ends with a Win and a Loss

Penn Charter, squash, Quaker, Philadelphia, independentMajor fans of Penn Charter squash found themselves in heaven Thursday.

Two varsity matches started at 4 o'clock in the same building, the Kline & Specter Squash Center, and people needed only to walk up and down the long pathway right outside the courts to see at least part of all 18 contests.

And spirited they were.
The girls bested Germantown Friends, 6-3, while the boys fell to Haverford School B, 5-4. (Haverford's varsity program is split into two units.)

As noted by coach Damon Leedale-Brown, the girls' win was especially satisfying because soph Alexa Lenfest, the No. 5 player, was absent due to a school trip to Atlanta.

Junior Charlotte Murray (pictured here) provided early momentum with a 3-0 sweep at No. 6. The players in spots Nos. 3 through 5 – junior Gwen Davis, eighth grader Amanda Cowhey, soph Mia Bezar – followed with wins and junior Chloe Master clinched victory with a triumph at No. 8.

Soph Elisabeth Ross ended the session with a 3-0 sweep at No. 1.

For the boys, soph Rohan Bhambhani (3-0) and frosh Nick Case (3-1) provided a 2-0 lead. Alas, four PC losses in a string of five-game matches put the Fords in great shape.

The Quakers' other winners were junior Marker Angelakis by 3-2 at No. 2 and classmate Marco Rodriguez by 3-0 at No. 1.
