Girls XC Dominates, tennis tops GA

Field hockey, soccer, tennis and water polo are not the only girls fall sports in which shutouts are possible.

Tuesday, in effect, cross country posted one against Baldwin in a meet at Belmont Plateau, in Fairmount Park.

The Quakers scored 15 points, the lowest possible total, by claiming the first five spots.

Freshman Emma Zwall seized first in 20 minutes, 1 second, over the 3.2-mile course. Second through fifth went, in order, to junior Mary McDavid, soph Sophia Solomon, junior Abby Zwall (Emma's sister) and soph Alicia Newman.

The boys competed in a tri-meet vs. Episcopal Academy and Hill School. They lost by respective scores of 17-40 and 17-42.

Freshman Drew Gillespie placed seventh overall at 19:36. Seniors Blaise Ciarrocchi (12th), Chris Thomas (14th) and Harrison Drebin (15th) could be found a shade down the line in almost consecutive order.

Girls tennis was pushed hard by its archrival, visiting Germantown Academy, but managed to record a 4-3 win.

The triumph was fueled by a 3-0 sweep in the singles matches. No. 1 Brinlea La Barge led the charge with matching 6-1 wins. The respective scores for No. 2, junior Leila Sor, and No. 3, soph JJ Birnie, were 6-2/6-4 and 6-4/7-5.

The doubles winners were seniors Chloe Master and Lizzie Drebin at the No. 1 spot. The scores were 7-5 and 6-2.

Boys golf placed third at Waynesborough CC, Malvern Prep's home course, in the weekly Inter-Ac Invitational. The Quakers totaled 234 points while Haverford School (221) and Episcopal (229) were one-two.

Frosh Patrick Isztwan (par 35) was the event's low scorer for the second consecutive week. Others with no more than 40 were seniors Noah Schwartz (37) and Brian Isztwan (38; he's Patrick's brother) and junior Dylan Topaz (40).

Girls water polo also faced GA. And lost by 14-9.
