With numerous MLB scouts brandishing radar guns again in attendance, senior righthander Joey Lancellotti turned in another dazzling performance Friday as Penn Charter's baseball team hosted Malvern Prep, likewise an Inter-Ac goody.

The result was a 1-0 win.

Fearful that throwing too many fastballs might cause a blister on a finger to pop, Lancellotti offered breaking pitches a shade more often than he usually does. No sweat. He scattered five hits, walked just one and recorded 12 strikeouts.

In 26 2/3 innings this season, he has allowed just 13 hits while mowing down 51. His ERA is an outrageous 0.26.

The necessary support was provided in the second inning thanks to a groundball single through the left side by senior Alex Cohen. That hit scored senior Brendan Pell, who'd walked and advanced to second on a single by classmate Steve Lorenz. Above, Pell applies the brakes as he rounds second base. More photos.

Softball broke away from an early 3-3 tie to thump visiting Episcopal, 15-5, in five innings.

Junior Ava Nicolucci received the win. Soph Abby Quinn was an offensive terror, going 3-for-3 with two doubles and five RBI. Senior Faith Fenton turned two hits into three RBI while junior Grace Stansfield and senior Abby Cohen notched two hits apiece. For each, one went for extra bases.

Boys lacrosse experienced the thrill of posting a last-second goal to create a 9-9 tie with Malvern . . . and then the agony of losing in overtime, 10-9.

The tying goal was scored by senior Luke Stansfield, Grace's brother, off an assist from junior Blake Target. Stansfield finished with three goals. Soph Nick DiCicco totaled two while senior Dylan Schwartz issued two assists.

Girls lacrosse dropped a 15-4 decision at Episcopal.

Senior Macaul Mellor scored twice. The other tallies were posted by senior Courtney Cubbin and junior Alexis Joseph.

Some of PC's track athletes traveled to Abington for an invitational event.

Senior Dylan Burnett won the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.83 seconds and freshman Sara Shipon took sixth in the 1600 at 5:24.97.
