Penn Charter won the girls’ portion of the 57th George School Invitational behind an athlete competing in her first one Saturday.

Freshman Catie Skinner’s individual win highlighted a terrific day for the Quakers. Skinner beat Solebury School’s Claudia Harris by three seconds to take first place. She covered the course in 20 minutes, 13 seconds.

Penn Charter used its superior depth to outlast Lower Moreland for the girls’ team title, getting 58 team points to 65 for the Lions.

Lower Moreland nipped Germantown Academy by two points, 40-42, to take the boys’ team title.

Abington Friends’ Sami Aziz took the individual title in 17:20.

Conrad Weiser Invitational. North Penn swept the first three places and amassed 21 team points behind Meghan McGovern (19:55.17) and easily coasted past host school Conrad Weiser (53) for the title.

Carlisle Meet of Champions. Brad Miles of North Penn won the individual title and La Salle took the team crown. Miles covered the 3.1-mile course in 15:20.18 and defeated Mount Lebanon’s Brad Gunzenhauser by a full seven seconds.

The Explorers used a balanced team effort to post 89 points and easily win the team title over second-place Altoona (140). They did not place a runner in the top five.

Bowdoin Park (N.Y.) Classic. In Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Germantown Friends finished second only to Haddonfield (N.J.), getting a personal-best 16:18 from Gus McKenzie.

Haddonfield took the title with 54 points, with the Tigers second with 57 and Christian Brothers Academy (N.J.) third with 67.
