Girls XC Defeats GA

No matter what happens overall, a Penn Charter sports day that includes a win over the forever rival, Germantown Academy, is considered a huge success.

Say hello to the cross country girls . . . and make sure to thank them.

Tuesday in Fort Washington, they were impressive in a 23-32 victory.

Freshman Emily Zwall claimed first place. GA took the next two spots, but PC removed all doubt by sweeping fourth through seventh. Those runners, in order, were junior Mary McDavid, soph Sophia Solomon, junior Abigail Zwall (Emily's sister) and soph Alicia Newman.

Three other girls teams were scheduled to play home games vs. Episcopal Academy.

Field hockey and girls soccer fell by respective scores of 8-1 and 3-0. A goal by senior Catherine "Catmac" McInerney (pictured above) prevented the FH shutout.

The girls tennis match was suspended because rain made the courts too slippery. The boys cross country away meet vs. Haverford School was postponed.
