PHILADELPHIA — When Germantown Academy and Penn Charter met earlier this year to race, it was the Quakers that came away with a win. However, the Patriots were missing a few key members of their team during that meeting.
On GA-PC Day, the Patriots were back at full strength and it showed. The Patriots defeated Penn Charter, 27-30.
Almost every GA runner finished with a PR.
“Issy Goldstein ’20 really pushed Emma [Zwall of PC] for much of the course, and turned in a 43 second PR,” Head Coach Judy Krouse said in an email. “Anna Hennessey ’18 ran an amazing race with a 1:38 PR.”
Krouse also said that she was very proud of the team for finishing the season on such a high note, and that they will “really miss” the seniors–Kelsey O’Hara, Hennessey, Jackie DeRusso, Sydney Sciascia and Grace Rittenhouse.
