Squash and Indoor Track Round-Ups
If not for winter weather issues, PC's boys squash program would have completed its season Sunday in Hartford, Conn.
Instead, a match with another Philly-area school, Conestoga, unfolded Wednesday across School House Lane in the Kline & Specter Squash Center. It was part of the National Championships.
PC fell, 5-2. Senior Reid Kleinman, in his final match as a Quaker, went out in style with a 3-0 victory, and junior Marco Rodriguez pulled out a five-game triumph. Soph Rohan Bhambhani and junior Marker Angelakis lost tight matches.
The indoor track team competed – hey, who would have thought? – outdoors at West Chester Henderson. In wicked wind, to boot.
As noted by coach Bryan Skelly, the invitational was a scaled-down get-together that gave mostly JV-level kids a chance to compete one last time before the transition into spring track begins.
Highlights: In the 800, soph Mary McDavid (2:37.63) and freshman Jalynn Johnson (2:40.73) (pictured above, left to right in PC gear) placed eighth and ninth, respectively. Freshman Sophie Solomon ran 6:16.93 in the mile for seventh place.
