The History of GA-PC DAY

Both Germantown Academy and Penn Charter are members of the Inter-Academic Athletic League (Inter-Ac), founded in 1887. The first few championship playoffs of the League featured GA and PC, and since then the duel has become legend as the longest running prep school football game in the country. The addition of boys soccer and boys cross country matches to the GA-PC Day festivities raised the stakes and ignited the intensity of this traditional clash.

The rivalry, still fiercely competitive, has grown over the years. Once known for its male athletic contests, GA-PC Day began including match-ups between the girls field hockey, girls cross country, girls soccer and girls tennis teams in the 1990s. In 2001, boys water polo was added to the day's events, and girls water polo would follow in 2008. A special Competition Cup, established in 1996, is awarded to the school which wins the most events on GA-PC Day. GA has won the cup for the past two years.
