Track and Softball Big Winners

Penn Charter's visiting track teams claimed two wins Wednesday over archrival Germantown Academy – comfortable for the girls (75-51) and emphatic for the boys (96-26).

Seniors Akeem Blake and Harper Pollio-Barbee were the boy headliners. The former won the high jump and triple jump while the latter claimed the 800 and 1600. Blake's brother, Akeel, a freshman, was No. 1 in the long jump.

Among the girls, senior Marilyn Pease cleared 4-10 to win the high jump and just missed tying her personal best at 5-1. Soph Ainyae Holmes (100) and senior Felicia Robinson (TJ) were also among triumphant.

Softball hosted Wissahickon for a non-league softball game and ran its overall record to 14-4 with a 7-3 victory.

Junior Ava Nicolucci went the distance on the mound, allowing eight hits. Senior Faith Fenton went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI while classmate Brigitte Gutpelet went 3-for-4 with a triple and one ribbie.
