Beyond Believable Beyond the Arc

There are unusual occurrences and then there are barely believable occurrences. And the girls basketball varsity posted an all-timer Sunday in the Boardwalk Basketball Classic, in Wildwood, NJ.

The gals bested Egg Harbor Township (NJ), 56-24, in the semifinal round of the Genny Farnan-Robinson Bracket. Senior Hannah Fox scored 20 points while classmate Taylor Zahairagunn grabbed six rebounds. Now for the all-timer: PC shot 10-for-11 (90.9 percent) from beyond the arc! Fox paced that major accomplishment by sniping 6-for-6. The Quakers were 9-for-35 (25.7 percent) on two-pointers and (72.7) at the foul line.

In today's bracket final, PC will meet Haverford High, of Delaware County. The boys varsity will play in Wildwood Tuesday and Wednesday.
