Girls BKB Battles GA

It's likely the senior members of Penn Charter's girls basketball team will always remember their final game in the Dooney Field House.

Yes, the result was a loss. But what a battle the Quakers offered.

In a wildly entertaining game with numerous fast breaks and long-distance marksmanship – the first half alone produced 10 three-pointers – Germantown Academy earned a share of the Inter-Ac championship with Episcopal Academy.

The final score was 70-60, but don't allow yourself to be misled. With a shade over four minutes remaining, the teams were tied at 58-58 and the gym was seriously rocking.

Four PC players reached double figures in points – senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (16), freshman Kait Carter (13), senior Lexi Hnatkowsky (12, all via treys) and freshman Carmen Williams (10). More photos.

PC, the No. 5 seed, on Friday will visit No. 4 Shipley for a 4 o'clock game in the quarterfinal round of the PAISAA Tournament.

The boys will head there first. They'll play Shipley today at 6 in a first-round game.
