Basketball 1-for-2 at Make a Wish

On Friday, in Day One of participation in Germantown Academy's Make a Wish varsity basketball showcase event, Penn Charter went the .500 route. The girls varsity used a 16-6 fourth quarter to polish off Archbishop Ryan, 50-37, while the boys varsity fell to Shipley, 67-63.

Senior Hannah Fox spurred the late dominance by packing 10 of her 20 points into the final eight minutes. Overall, she also finished with four assists. Junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis mixed 14 points and 10 rebounds. The girls sniped 18-for-22 at the line. Senior Ayanna Matthews (eight), junior Lexi Hnatkowsky (six) and sophomore Grace Stansfield (two) completed the scoring for first-year coach Joe Maguire, who last season was an assistant at Ryan.

The boys were hindered by a 12-for-23 outing at the so-called charity stripe. Senior Harrison Williams (8-for-13, 16) and soph Mason Williams (11) scored in double figures. Though a guard, M. Williams paced PC with seven rebounds. Junior Dylan Burnett was a multipronged contributor with six boards and three apiece of assists/steals.

Saturday, it'll be girls vs. McDonogh (MD) at 3:30 and boys vs. Boys' Latin Charter, of Philadelphia's Public League, at 5.
