Up and Down Night for BKB

Penn Charter played .500 ball Tuesday in Inter-Ac varsity basketball games. The girls topped Agnes Irwin, 54-40, while the boys were bested by Malvern, 70-50.

Seniors Hannah Fox (16) and Ayanna Matthews and junior Lexi Hnatkowsky (12 apiece) scored in double figures for the girls while junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis added four steals to eight apiece of points/rebounds. Also, Fox and Hnatkowsky tallied four assists apiece.

Coach Joe Maguire noted: "The team needs to get back to consistently playing hard, smart and together, and having fun throughout an entire game and not just in quarters, halves, or in spurts. Team needs to continue to focus on doing the little things."

For the boys, soph Mason Williams scored 17 points, but the other starters combined for just nine markers. Subs Jake McCain (sr.) and Ryan "Poochie" Holmes (soph) halved 18 points. Williams, though a guard, was the Quakers' leading rebounder with seven.
