Springside seizes share of softball title

Stealing second base in the first inning, Springside’s Michele Cybularz (#10, right) was ruled safe, barely beating the tag by Penn Charter shortstop Danielle Sienko.

With back-to-back road wins last week, the Springside School Lions secured a tie for the 2010 Girls Inter-Ac softball championship, surpassing the achievements of any previous team in the history of the program.

Winning at Germantown Academy on Monday, 7-3, and at Penn Charter the following day, 9-5, Springside (16-5 overall) matched the 10-2 league record of Agnes Irwin. The Lions and Owls will share this year’s title, since there are neither playoffs nor tiebreakers in the Inter-Ac, and the team with the best win/loss record in a double-round of league games becomes the champion.

In Tuesday’s season finale at Penn Charter, the Quakers actually out-hit Springside, 9-7, and were up 4-2 after three innings. At the top of the fourth, patience at the plate led to seven walks and seven runs for the visiting Lions, and Charter could only recoup one run the rest of the way.

Mount varsity and lightweights win at Scholastic Nationals

Mount St. Joseph Academy’s lightweight eight (foreground) and varsity eight (background) won gold medals at the Scholastic Rowing Association of America National Regatta last weekend. The crews routinely square off in practice, but rarely appear in the same race. They are seen here together in the fifth installment of Philadelphia’s Manny Flick series on April 18, when the lightweights competed in the varsity category.

At the Scholastic Rowing Association of America National Regatta last weekend, Mount St. Joseph Academy saw its most decorated class of rowers add to its gold medal collection, while the Magic’s flagship crew accomplished something its forebears had not achieved since 2006.

Four CHASS boats make finals at SRAA regatta

Springside’s varsity quad was the bronze medalist at the SRAA National Regatta in Saratoga Springs last weekend. Pictured here picking up the silver medals they won at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta are (from left) Verity Walsh, Taylor Apostolico, Jen Sager, and Anna Valcuikas.

For the second year in a row, Springside School medaled in the annual Scholastic Rowing Association of America National Regatta, which took place over Memorial Day weekend on Fish Creek in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Springside took the gold medal in the junior quad in 2009 and this time around the Lions won a bronze in the senior quad. With two juniors and two sophomores in the boat, Springside actually could have competed in the junior quad class, but the crew has done very well racing against older rivals, winning the silver medal at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta two weeks ago.

At Saratoga, Chestnut Hill Academy also raced a senior quad, which came in fourth overall, and each school sent a lightweight double to New York. Both of the tandems came in fifth in their final races on Saturday.
