Girls Swim to First League Victory

The great starts for Penn Charter's winter sports teams have extended to swimming.

In a meet Wednesday at Baldwin, the Quakers opened their campaign by claiming first place in every event while racking up an 84-76 victory.

The margin is only eight points because PC went the unofficial route in the final three events while allowing Baldwin's 38 points to count.

PC's headliner was soph Sally Foley, who posted a time of 1:04.84 in the 100 breaststroke—best ever in PC history (and in Baldwin's pool).

Also, soph Gabby Lopez-Ona and eighth grader Lane Murray captured two events. Lopez-Ona won the 200 freestyle in 2:03.04 and the 100 butterfly in 1:00.88.

Murray posted her triumphs in the 50 free (26.06) and 100 backstroke (1:29.36).

Wins in individual events were also racked up by frosh Camille Weiss in the 200 individual medley (2:14.79), senior Madison Freeland in the 100 free (56.09) and soph Sabrina Shaffer in the 500 free (5:24.71).

Almost all individual winners were also part of one or more first-place relays.
