Perry Rows for Gold in City Champs

For those with ties to crew, the annual City Championships, held by the Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association on the Schuylkill River, are as big as the NFL draft.

And Sunday, one Penn Charter competitor headed home flashing a smile as wide as the Art Museum's front steps.

Maria Perry, a junior, captured first place in the JV 1X event, thanks to a time of 6:44.80. She won, in fact, by just short of 10 seconds.

According to the PSRA, the championships featured 535 competitors from 75 schools.

PC's next best performance was a fourth by senior Kelsey White, sophs Lucy Alter and Sydney Nixon and senior Emma Grugan in the girls varsity 4X. The time was 5:47.87.

Also, ninth grader Zoe Thistle placed fifth (8:10.94) in the girls gig/novice 1X, junior Anna Pogrebivsky and soph Zoe Tierno took sixth (7:00.13) in the girls JV 2X, and freshmen Kelsey Kline, Trevor Harbison and Pat Cannon and soph Charles Markham did likewise (5:51.96) in the boys novice 4X.

Saturday, girls lacrosse hosted Manheim Township and fell by 9-8. 

Goals by senior Courtney Cubbin and freshman Leah Sax provided leads of 6-5 and 7-6, respectively, but the good vibrations could not be sustained.
