Girls Lax Beats English Team

Girls lacrosse earned a 20-2 win over a unlikely opponent on Friday evening.

St. Helen & St. Katherine, an independent all-girls school in Abington, Oxfordshire, England, is visiting Philadelphia to play in two games this week, the first against Penn Charter on Friday and the other against Germantown Friends School on Saturday.

After a 2-2 tie early in the first half, the Quakers gained momentum and established a commanding 14-2 lead heading into halftime. The team allowed minimal opportunities for their opponent in the second half and added six more goals of their own to earn the victory.

Senior Emma Wilson scored four goals to lead the Quakers’ offensive efforts. Senior Greer Guyer and junior Leah Sax each added three goals of their own.

Additionally, Kaylee Dyer, Darcy Felter, Mia Ferraro, and Kaitlynn Haughney all scored goals for the Quakers.

The team is back in action at home today at Maguire Field against Seton-La Salle, visiting from Pittsburgh.

Boys tennis traveled to Episcopal Academy on Friday afternoon, winning two matches (one in singles and one in doubles), but ultimately suffered a 5-2 loss to their experienced Inter-Ac foe.

Sophomore Charles Jordan-Weinstein earned a dominant win in two sets (6-1, 6-1) during singles competition. Additionally, in doubles competition seniors Alex Shipon and Jake Cutler fought back from a deficit and earned a win for the Quakers in three sets (4-6, 6-2, 6-4).
