Hoops Net Two Wins in League Openers

Day One of the Inter-Ac basketball season ended with two victories for PC.

In the opening game of the boys tripleheader, held right down School House Lane at Philadelphia University (nice student turnout!), the Quakers used great defense/hustle to best Episcopal Academy, 52-36. Meanwhile, the girls traveled to EA and carved out a 49-46 victory.

For the boys, junior Adam Holland (shown here making a layup to end the first half) scored all 14 of his points in a 33-23 second half while senior Harrison Williams tallied eight of his 10. Sophomore Mason Williams (no relation) and senior Evan Ferrell snared six rebounds each. H. Williams and junior Dylan Burnett were the most notable defenders.

For the girls, predicting a victory after the first quarter (24-10 deficit) would not have made much sense, if any. But the Quakers were defensive whirlwinds in the middle sessions (27-10 advantage) and managed to claim the W. Senior Hannah Fox mixed five apiece of rebounds/assists with 21 points. Junior Lexi Hnatkowsky (11) also scored in double figures. Junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis was also a kingpin (queenpin?) with eight points and 13 rebounds.
