Softball and Tennis Collect Wins

Monday, thinking a certain Penn Charter senior would have a two-pronged effect on an Inter-Ac softball game was no leap of faith.

Not only did Faith Fenton pitch six impressive innings in what turned out to be a 7-0 victory over visiting Agnes Irwin. She also helped herself with a pair of RBI singles.

PC seized a 2-0 lead in the second inning when soph Abby Quinn clobbered a two-run homer.

In a four-run fourth, soph Abby Manion, junior Chloe Master and senior Brigitte Gutpelet joined Faith in the RBI-singles club.

Across School House Lane, boys tennis hosted Shipley for a non-league game. Only five matches counted and the Quakers prevailed, 4-1.

The singles winners were junior Ben Swanson and eighth grader Josh John. The successful doubles teams featured junior Justin Ko/soph Tom Bradbeer and senior Tyler Schwartz/junior Jake Cutler. Both combos surrendered just one point.
