Athletes Sign to Play D1 and PC/GA Day On Deck

                                                                                                                       

Surrounded by smiling parents, coaches and teachers, two Penn Charter seniors signed NCAA letters of intent to play and accept scholarships at Division 1 universities.

On the morning of Nov. 10, a national signing day for college-bound athletes, Andrew Amaro, of Bensalem, signed a letter of intent to play baseball with at the University of Maryland. Joseph Sankey, of Warminster, signed to play lacrosse at the University of North Carolina.

Sankey, an attack player and two-year captain for Penn Charter, was first-team All-League and an All-EPSLA pick. Sankey played in the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association Showcase; he was picked for both ESPN Rise Warrior 40 and Under Armour Underclassmen. He is listed in Inside Lacrosse as one of the Top 50 players in the country. Sankey, who had 47 goals and 33 assists as a junior at Penn Charter, committed to UNC in his sophomore year.

Amaro, who plays both outfield and second base, is the prototype leadoff hitter; because of his speed and ability to bunt, he forces the defense to play up, opening the field for more base hits. His batting average is .364, and he had 12 stolen bases in 14 attempts last season. Amaro has received league honors in the Inter-Ac, and he will be captain of the 2011 team. Although they play different positions, Amaro, his brother, Rob, his father, David, and his uncle, Ruben, all excelled in PC baseball and signed to play in college (Maryland, Virginia, Duke, Stanford); Andrew’s uncle is general manager of the Phillies. 

This Saturday, we host GA for the 124th annual PC/GA Day games and festivities.  The day begins with girls tennis at 10:00am and ends with the football game at 1:30pm.  Along with these two teams, field hockey, boys and girls soccer, water polo and cross country teams will compete in the fall's last scheduled game.  The competition cup is at stake.  Each game won earns a point towards the cup, which represents the overall winner for the day.  Boys soccer enters the game in first place, a win gives them the league championship!  The weather looks good for Saturday.  Come on out and Beat GA!
