William Penn Charter School
Boys Lacrosse History

  Penn Charter fielded its first lacrosse team in 1968 under coach Robert "Jake" Roak, who
coached the team through '73. Senior Bob Fass scored the team's first goal in a loss to
Germantown Academy and scored the decisive goal, in overtime, in the team's first win,
over George School.
  The team played in the private school division of a Philadelphia-area league through 1976.
It won state championships in 1974, '75 and '76 with title-game wins over Harriton by 4-3,
Harriton again by 11-10 and Abington by 11-10, respectively. Lacrosse became an official
Inter-Ac sport in 1977.
  Aside from Roak, the Quakers have been coached by Joe Perrott, Henry "School House"
Lane, Steve Yingling, Chris Teare, Tony Resch
and Pat McDonough.
  The league members: Episcopal Academy (EA), Germantown Academy (GA), Haverford School
(HS), Malvern Prep (MP) and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy (SCH), since 2013.
  Thanks to John Burkhart, Joe Perrott, Tony Resch, Bob "Boober" Aitken, John
Michener, Dave Butler, Harry Sankey, Bob Rosania, Tim Dowling, Tim Wall, Bill Gallagher
Jr., Jim Still
and Jeff Krane for their help!
