And the wins just keep on comin'.
Wednesday in Florida, Penn Charter upped its baseball record to 6-0 by recording a 12-3 win over Grayslake North, of the deep Chicago suburbs.
Most of the heavy lifting was done by guys whose surnames start with S. Senior Justus Sanders worked the first six innings and recorded 11 whiffs while throwing 72 percent of his pitches for strikes. Junior Mike Siani went 3-for-4 with two RBI, and those ribbies came on a single that highlighted a five-run fifth. His brother, Sammy, a soph, cracked two doubles.
Senior Joey Lancellotti best represented the rest of the alphabet, going 3-for-4 with two RBI.
The softball team spent part of the week in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and notched a 5-1 record.

Junior Grace Stansfield, senior Brigitte Gutpelet, soph Abby Quinn and senior Emily Zurcher provided much of the offensive punch.
At a banquet Wednesday night in the Far Northeast, senior Julie Webb was honored by the Markward Basketball Club for her academic accomplishments. She was one of nine female recipients of the prestigious Ferguson Award.
