Girls Track Sets School Record at Penn Relays

Girls track & field had a great day at the Penn Relays!

The girls set a school record with a sixth place finish in the High School Girls’ Distance Medley Championship of America Race with a time of 12:19.52. The DMR team of Sara Shipon, Mary McDavid, Milan Poland and Emma Zwall broke the previous PC record set in 2011.

"Our girls’ relay team represented us very well," said Director of Athletics and Athletic Planning John Thiel. "Just to qualify for the Championship for America finals is remarkable, let alone finish 6th out of 18 teams. Congratulations to our girls and their coaches!" 

The girls 4x100 team also had a great day, the team of Ainyae Holmes, Mia Murphy, Peyton Parker and Jalynn Johnson ran a season-best  51.71. The girls 4 X 400 of Mia Murphy, Isabel Crawford, Peyton Parker and Jaylon Johnson also ran a season best 4:17

Next up at the relays  for PC Track & Field will be the boys 4 X 400 tomorrow. 


Boys lacrosse earned an impressive 8-7 win over Episcopal Academy yesterday.

The Quakers established a dominant 4-0 lead before settling for a 5-2 lead at halftime. Senior Blake Target and freshman Antonio DeMarco each scored two goals for PC. Additionally, freshman Connor McKee and senior Ryan Dickson each added goals for the Quakers. The team held on to their early lead to take the victory over the Inter-Ac foe.

The team will be back in action when they travel to Radnor High School to play the Brunswick School at the Katie Samson Festival on Saturday.

Softball lost 3-2 in an away game against Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.

Sophomore Maddie Solow hit a homerun to spark the Quakers offense, but it was not enough to earn the victory. The team will travel to Wissahickon High School for an away game later today.

Baseball dropped a tough 8-2 loss to Germantown Academy yesterday. The Quakers trailed 5-2 heading into the sixth inning before surrendering two runs late in the game. The team will play next when they travel to Archbishop Carroll for an away game on Saturday, April 28.
