Girls Swimming Wins Inter-Ac Championship!
The swimmers weren't the only ones who got wet Friday as Penn Charter's girls participated in their final Inter-Ac League meet of the season.
So did head coach Brian Hecker . . . For the best possible reason!
Hecker was doused moments after the Quakers used a 106-65 win over visiting Notre Dame Academy to complete a 6-0 march through the league and claim their FIRST outright championship. (SCH Academy does not offer girls swimming, thus the 6-0 record.)
PC won seven individual events and three relays.
Sophomore Sally Foley was the top performer in the 500-yard freestyle and 100 breaststroke, posting respective times of 5:04.08 and 1:04.78.
Also recording individual wins were junior Annika Murray in 200 free (2:05.17), soph Sam Boyes in 50 free (25.76), soph Avery Myers in diving (236.80 points), freshman Camille Weiss in 100 butterfly (58.35) and soph Sabrina Shaffer in 100 backstroke (1:03.59).
The relay wins: 200 medley in 1:51.51, 200 free in 1:47.16 and 400 free in 3:49.99. And here are the quartets, in order: eighth grader Lane Murray, Foley, junior Ayana Opong and Weiss . . . A. Murray, soph Alicia Newman, Opong and senior Greer Guyer . . . soph Gabby Lopez-Ona, junior Natalie Driscoll, Newman and senior Madison Freeland. More photos in this flickr set.
The basketball squads dropped home games by seven-point margins -- the girls to Germantown Academy by 61-54 and the boys to Malvern by 76-69.
Different path to those results, however. The girls won the fourth quarter, 18-9, while the boys fell by 26-12.
Sophs Carmen Williams and Kait Carter scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, while frosh Laila Hamiter claimed eight rebounds. Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (23) and senior Mason Williams (16, Carmen's brother) topped the guys.
Wrestling visited Germantown Academy and lost by 58-9.
