Boys BKB Picks Up League Win

Perhaps the school should have more days without classes. At least for the guys. After a non-stressful day, boys varsity basketball rolled to a 63-33 win over visiting SCH Academy.

Soph Mason Williams (18), senior Harrison Williams (13, no relation) and freshman Ryan "Poochie" Holmes (12) scored in double figures while senior Evan Ferrell, coming off the bench, grabbed nine of the Quakers' 40 rebounds. Junior guard Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky dished four of the team's 14 assists.

Holmes enjoyed a memorable moment, turning a steal at three-quarters court into a mad dash for an emphatic slam. Think about it: In PC's forever hoops history, how many times has a freshman uncorked a dunk? Especially a guard, not a frontcourt player?

The Q's play twice more this week: at Haverford School Friday in another Inter-Ac game and home Saturday in a non-league contest against Simon Gratz and  former PC coach Lynard Stewart.

Earlier in the day, girls varsity suffered a 54-41 home loss to Germantown Academy. Junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (16) and senior Hannah Fox (13) led the Quakers in scoring. Davis also collected 11 rebounds and senior Ayanna Matthews distributed five assists.

"We lack depth, and we had too many turnovers vs. the press," said coach Joe Maguire. "We fouled in the fourth quarter and GA made their foul shots to extend their lead from seven to 13 points."
