School is in Session – Teams Get Rolling

The first full week of classes finds the students busy in the classrooms and on the athletic fields. Girls cross country ran in the Cherokee Challenge last Saturday.  PC Harriers placed 17th out of 27 teams in a meet that is considered one of the best in South Jersey.  Catie Skinner placed 2nd in the 10th grade division and Elyse Wilkinson finished in 11th place within the 12th grade division.  Our boys cross country team continues to rebuild this season and the team is helped by an increase in runners over last year’s team. 

On Tuesday, they began league competition.  While Haverford School won the meet, our team improved overall and 11th grader, Jorin Schug, finished in first place followed by Tre Williams, new 9th grader, in second place.  Varsity football opened their season with a tough loss to Penn Wood this past Saturday.  Senior QB John Loughery tossed four touchdown passes, three to 10th grader, Darryl Worley.  PC was leading 26-21 with four minutes to play, but Penn Wood scored with 1 minute 23 seconds to play and PC lost 27-26.  Varsity field hockey continues to enjoy our new turf field.  Yesterday they began league play with a 1-0 home victory against a solid Baldwin School team. 

Field hockey also enjoyed playing a group of alums in a game on Saturday.  This game was the first event in a year-long celebration of girls’ sports at PC. 

This year is the 20th anniversary of girls playing varsity sports at PC.  Look for more information and other such events in the upcoming months.  If you have questions, please contact Meg Kafer at  Varsity girls soccer also opened league play on Tuesday of this week and enjoyed a 4-0 win over Baldwin School. 

Boys soccer traveled to St. Benedicts on Tuesday, playing tough against this national powerhouse, losing by a score of 3-0.  They bounced back on Wednesday with a home victory over Archbishop Wood, a strong local program, by the score of 3-1. 

Boys polo defeated Hill School yesterday,  17-12.  Under the direction of new coach Tom Tracey, girls polo will begin their season with a match versus Lawrenceville on Wednesday, 9/21. Varsity girls tennis is enjoying the start of a new season and most recently defeated Shipley School, 4-3.
