Boys Soccer History

  Penn Charter fielded its first official soccer team in 1919. It played from '19 through '27 in the
Private Schools Soccer Association and then became part of the Inter-Ac in 1928. The Quakers
have remained there since.
  The team has been coached by George Young, Dan Test, Bert Linton, Charles "Chick" Conard,
Earl Harrison, Pete Kennedy, Rick Brotemarkle, George "Buff" Weigand, Peter Boucher,
Ed Marks, Bob Bower, Mark Franek, Leighton Walters
and Bob DiBenedetto.
  The current Inter-Ac members: Episcopal Academy (EA), Germantown Academy (GA), Haverford
School (HS), Malvern Prep (MP) and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy (SCH). Previous members:
Germantown Friends (GF), Friends' Central (FC) and Friends Select (FS).
