Basketball Takes Two
The Jim "Flipper" Phillips Era Era Era began Tuesday afternoon with a win. "Era" appears three times because this is stint No. 3 for Phillips as the coach of boys varsity basketball. Thanks to a nice overall effort, the Quakers bested visiting Germantown Friends, 52-45, in a non-league game. Sophomore Mason Williams (23, four treys) and junior Adam Holland (13) scored in double figures while juniors Dylan Burnett and Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky, a sub, halved six apiece of assists/steals. The Quakers started the game with a 10-2 run and the second half with a 12-0 burst.
Game 2 in the Dooney Field House featured girls varsity basketball. Joe Maguire was making his PC coaching debut and the result was a 60-59, non-league win over Friends' Central. Senior Hannah Fox buzzsawed her way to 23 points, six assists and three steals while junior Lexi Hnatkowsky scored 15 points and, like her brother, contributed three apiece of — gotta love it — assists/steals. Junior Mareyah Davis also scored in double figures (13), senior Ayanna Matthews had five assists and four steals, and junior Juliet Webb snagged seven rebounds.
