Boys Squash Keeps It Rolling vs. GFS

Not even contests on consecutive days, with No. 2 on the road, could prevent Penn Charter's boys squash team from turning heads.

After blanking visiting Malvern Prep Wednesday, the Quakers took the short trek to Germantown Friends School Thursday and posted an 8-1 victory.

Coach Damon Leedale-Brown was especially happy that two players toughed out five-game victories.

Senior Ben Swanson triumphed after dropping the second and third games. Eighth-grader Oliver Leedale-Brown, the coach's son, lost the third and fourth before regrouping just in time.

The other winners needed just three games. They were: seniors Marco Rodriguez and Marker Angelakis, junior Tom Bradbeer, soph Jack Kennedy, freshman Ryan Yeatman and eighth-grader Hyun-Su Price.

Rodriguez yielded just eight points. Yeatman was next at 11.

"We put up an impressive performance against a fired up GFS team," coach Leedale-Brown said.
