Varsity Teams are Underway

All varsity teams are off to a good start. On Friday night, football opened against TrumanHigh School and won the game 33-0; a great beginning for Coach Humble and the team. When the team gathers in the end zone after each win for the post-game talk, the game ball is presented to a player for outstanding performance in the game. This weekend, game balls were presented to running back, Eric Neefe, and offensive lineman, Mike McGlinchy. Mike is normally an offensive and defensive tackle but due to injuries to the starting and backup centers, Mike was called upon to move to center and play very well in this very important position.

Girl’s soccer endured a long bus ride to St. AndrewsSchool, Middletown, Delawareon Friday and came home with a 5-2 victory. Sophomore Lauren Dimes had 3 goals, and starting goalie Sarah Butler (12th grade) and her back up, Rachel Garnick, combined for 5 saves.

 Boy’s soccer had a game at Friends Central on Saturday. However, play was suspended in the first half after an unfortunate medical emergency occurred involving a FCS player. The nature of the emergency caused the player to be sent to the hospital. While the player was stabilized and should recover, the nature of the incident caused the coaches and game officials to suspend play. It is possible that the game may be rescheduled at a future date.

 Boys cross country competed in the Bryn Mawr Running Company Quad Relay race at Belmont Plateau on Saturday. Our “A” Relay team included Tre Williams, Ben Szuhaj, Scott Mason, and Hans Stedman. They finished in 15th place out of 32 teams total. Our “B” Relay team finished in 30th place and included, Jamir Brown, Adam Costarino, Ben Richards, and Colin McCloskey.

 On Saturday, the girls cross country team competed in the PTXC3 Championship Race at KutztownUniversity. This is a highly competitive race drawing runners from PA, NJ and VA. Nearly 300 girls participated in this race including PC’s varsity and JV runners. Catie Skinner was the outstanding runner for PC finishing in 7th place. This is an outstanding accomplishment for Catie, and the race was an awesome experience for the entire team. Below are the PC team results:
