Water Polo Has Final Tune-Up Before PC/GA Day
Penn Charter hosted the water polo championships for Eastern private schools Sunday and performed well while compiling a 1-1 record.
In fact, coach Brian Hecker feels his gals lately "have been playing their best polo of the season" and that has him excited for Saturday's game vs. Germantown Academy.
PC's results: a 16-15 win over Lawrenceville School (NJ) and a 9-7 loss to Hill School.
The Lawrenceville game featured a 9-6 edge in the second half. Soph Hayley Hunt turned six shots into five goals and classmate Sally Foley went 4-for-4 in her most noteworthy varsity outing. Junior Molly Visco added three goals. All six starters had at least one steal.
Hill was the No. 1 seed and PC spent some time in Feelin' Giddy Land, thanks to a 6-3, third-quarter. But Hill, the eventual champ, responded with five consecutive goals and wound up surviving. Hunt (three) and Visco (two) finished the game as PC's top scorers.
In the boys version of the tournament, played over two days, the Quakers dropped verdicts to Hill, Pingry School (NJ) and St. Benedict's (NJ).
In those last two games, frosh Zach Kaplan totaled nine nine apiece of goals/steals. Senior Alex Koenig added four scores vs. SB and soph Bret Brogan had six steals.
