Emma Zwall Takes First in XC Invitational

Penn Charter's Emma Zwall continues to enthrall. Though only a freshman, Emma is already creating waves on the local cross country scene. 

On Saturday, coach Andy Zuccotti's squad trekked to William Tennent High, in Warminster, to participate in an invitational event involving 24 schools. The Quakers placed third with 153 points and Emma won the race.

Not by a little, either. Her winning time of 18 minutes, 15 seconds, bested the No. 2 finisher's time by 26 seconds.

Junior Abby Zwall (Emma's sister), junior Mary McDavid and soph Sophia Solomon also finished in the top 50.

Emma reflects on the race in PennTrackXC video interview.
