Markward Club Honors Three PC Hoopsters
PC seniors Mireyah Davis, Lexi Hnatkowsky and Juliet Webb recently received regional recognition for their achievements on the basketball court and in the classroom.
Mireyah, Lexi and Juliet have won the Markward Award, one of the most prestigious basketball honors for a high school athlete in Philadelphia. They were honored at the Markward Basketball Club dinner on Feb. 22.
The Markward Basketball Club has given awards since 1947, first only to boys and later adding girls and athletes from suburban schools. Today, the club honors athletes from the Public, Catholic and Inter-Ac Leagues, and the Philadelphia suburbs several times each year.
Recent PC athletes to receive the Markward Award were Sean O’Brien in 2014 and Ayanna Matthews and Hannah Fox in 2016.
