Softball, Baseball Win on the Road

Softball traveled to Notre Dame for a big game on Friday and took home an important 3-2 victory in extra innings. The Quakers pushed across a run in the top of ninth inning for the win, improving their record to 7-2 in Inter-Ac league play.

Junior Abby Manion hit an impressive home run in the sixth inning, junior Abbey Quinn added two hits and senior Grace Stansfield hit a double to pace the Quakers offense. PC utilized three pitchers during the game; senior Ava Nicolucci closed out the game in extra innings, allowing just one hit and striking out the last batter to earn the win.

The team will be back in action on Monday, May 7, when they host Plymouth Whitemarsh High School at home on Max Gross Field.

Baseball earned a decisive 6-2 win over Springside Chestnut Hill Academy on the road yesterday. Trailing 2-1 in the seventh inning with one out remaining, junior Demetrius de Ramus hit a huge RBI single to tie the game at 2-2. His impressive game continued in the ninth inning when he added another RBI single to bring in the go-ahead run.

Senior Mike Siani (2-for-4) added two RBIs of his own in the ninth inning to extend the lead for the Quakers and seal the victory. 

Boys lacrosse traveled to Malvern Prep for an away game on Friday and despite a good effort and taking an early 3-2 lead, the team fell 11-7 in defeat.

Junior Jayce Dyer and senior Ryan Dickson each scored two goals for the Quakers to lead the offense. Junior Gavin Tygh, senior Luke Brogan and sophomore Conor McKee also scored goals for PC. The team will play next on Monday, May 7, when they host Southern Lehigh at home on Perrott Field.

Girls lacrosse hosted Notre Dame at home yesterday, but could not hold onto an early lead and ultimately suffered a tough 11-6 loss.

Freshman Kaylee Dyer scored two goals, and teammates Lane Murray, Mia Ferraro, Leah Sax and Vanessa Ewing each added a goal of their own, but it was not enough to earn the win. The team will play next on Tuesday, May 8, when they travel to Germantown Academy for a big Inter-Ac game.
