In their Athletic Association of Catholic Academies opener last Wednesday, the Magic of Mount St. Joseph Academy captured the first four places and also positioned two other runners in the top nine to easily over come a pair of league rivals.
In contrast to September 2020, the cross country season got off to a relatively normal start last Tuesday for the boys of Penn Charter and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, who met the squad from Episcopal Academy for an Inter-Ac League tri-meet at Belmont Plateau in Fairmount Park.
In the first few weeks of September, Penn Charter's field hockey team has been dominating the Friends Schools League. While a Quaker school, PC actually belongs to the Inter-Ac League, but in non-league matches prior to the start of league play, the Quakers have defeated three FSL teams in a row.
If you didn't glance at the scoreboard and simply watched the ebb and flow of action in last Saturday's soccer game at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, you might have been a little surprised at the 3-0 final score.
Springside Chestnut Hill Academy didn't lose a game during the abbreviated 2020 season, and in their last full campaign in 2019 the Devils achieved the rare feat of winning the Inter-Ac League championship with a 12-0 record.
