Success for Weekend Hoops
Each word starts with the letter S . . . Saturday and sweep.
In non-league varsity basketball games, the boys and girls rolled to completely comfortable victories.
Playing at home, the boys bested Cristo Rey, a rather new Catholic school (its first seniors will graduate in June) near Broad and Olney, by 60-45. On the road, as part of a showcase event at Spring-Ford High, the girls seized a 56-37 win over Bishop Shanahan.
Sophomore Mason Williams paced the boys by nailing five three-pointers en route to 21 points. The best stat of all: Seventeen of the Quakers' 22 field goals yielded assists.
This was the third game in four days for the boys, but fatigue was not an issue. They stormed to 40 of the game's first 62 points.
Junior Julie Webb, thanks to her first career double-double (10 apiece of points/rebounds; also three blocks), was named the Player of the Game for the girls. Senior Hannah Fox and junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis added 13 and 12 points, respectively, and junior Lexi Hnatkowsky scrambled for five steals.
Ninth-grader Abby Manion created a stir by scoring her varsity points (three).
