Posted 05/19/2016 09:36AM


PC softball coach Doc Mittica said his team "was focused on winning the Inter-Ac outright."

Relentlessly focused, in fact.

The Quakers bested Agnes Irwin, 13-3, in five innings, to clinch the crown (at 11-0) with one game remaining (vs. Episcopal Academy).

Junior Faith Fenton went the distance, yielding four hits, three walks and two earned runs while recording three strikeouts.

The hitting heroes were numerous – senior Ayanna Matthews (4-for-4, two RBI), junior Brigitte Gutpelet (3-for-4, triple), soph Grace Stansfield (2-for-4, double, two RBI) and seniors Eileen Hennessy (2-for-3, double, four RBI), Dev Loftus (two RBI) and Zoe Neefe (two-run homer to deeeeeep left field).

The team held a celebration to honor seniors and their parents, pictured at right.


PC's track teams traveled to Hill School, in Pottstown, to compete in the PAISAA state championships.

Junior Akeem Blake earned top-by-far honors by capturing two firsts and a second. His wins came in the long jump (21-7 1/2) and triple jump (44-2) while his runnerup performance occurred in the high jump (6-6).

Junior Harper Pollio-Barbee ran second in the 800 at 2:00.16 and three classmates managed to place fourth -- Dylan Burnett (15.29 in high hurdles), Pat McLaughlin (43.51 in intermediate hurdles) and Edgar McIlvaine (11-0 in pole vault).

The girls' lone headliner was junior Felicia Robinson, who notched a 35-2 effort for second in the triple jump.
