Two Days, Two Wins at Make-a-Wish

Penn Charter's varsity basketball teams returned to Germantown Academy Saturday to compete again in the Make-a-Wish showcase event. And the results were a flip-flop of Day 1. The boys varsity topped Boys' Latin Charter, 70-68, in overtime, while the girls fell to McDonogh, of Maryland, 52-33.

In their first six games, the boys shot an unsightly 49.5 percent (52-for-105) at the foul line. But in this one, they sniped 22-for-28 and senior forward Harrison Williams provided the W by hitting two freebies with 3.6 seconds remaining.

Williams (18) led four Quakers in double figures and was followed by senior Evan Ferrell (13), junior Adam Holland (11) and sophomore Mason Williams (10). Frosh sub Ryan "Poochie" Holmes
posted nine points. Junior Dylan Burnett, quickly becoming the King of Little Things, had nine rebounds, three assists and seven
steals.

For the girls varsity, senior Hannah Fox (12) and junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (10) scored in double figures while Davis (eight) and junior Lexi Hnatkowsky (four) led the rebounders.
