Wins for Baseball, Softball, Girls Lax
Reruns aren't always appealing. This one was!
Back on April 21, senior righthander Joey Lancellotti did the pitching and senior first baseman Alex Cohen notched the RBI as Penn Charter nipped visiting Malvern, 1-0, in an Inter-Ac classic.
Tuesday, the teams met again, in Chester County, and the details were identical – 1-0 win for PC, complete game for Lancellotti, RBI for Cohen.
This time, Joey was able to post the shutout despite allowing five apiece of hits/walks. He struck out nine and six came in the last three innings. Cohen earned his RBI in the seventh, thanks to a sacrifice fly. It scored soph Sammy Siani, who'd started the rally with a ringing double to left-center. Philly.com coverage.
On campus, the Quakers earned a pair of girls-teams wins over archrival Germantown Academy.
Softball coasted, 14-2, in five innings. Lacrosse was pushed, but survived, 16-13.
Junior Ava Nicolucci went the distance, allowing five hits and no walks. Junior Grace Stansfield was the hitting star, going 4-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI. Seniors Brigitte Gutpelet and Emily Zurcher and the soph Abbies, Manion and Quinn, collected two hits apiece. Gutpelet, Manion, Quinn and yet another Abby, senior Cohen, lashed doubles.
