Hoops Two for the Road

Quite the road show!

The varsity basketball squads left behind the comforts of home for Inter-Ac games Friday night, but securing victories proved to be no problem. The boys topped SCH Academy, 67-41, while the girls bested Agnes Irwin, 52-36.

The boys highlight came in the third quarter when senior Harrison Williams racked up eight points in 14 seconds. That outburst began with a pair of three-point plays (old fashioned version) just two seconds apart.

"Harry" finished with 16 points. Junior Adam Holland and soph Mason Williams totaled 12 apiece. The Quakers won the second half, 45-25.

The girls won the first three quarters by 47-19. Overall, they earned 11 assists on 16 field goals while also hustling for 17 steals and sniping 13-for-14 at the foul line.

Seniors Hannah Fox and Ayanna Matthews totaled 15 and 10 points, respectively. Juniors Lexi Hnatkowsky and Mireyah "Rey" Davis had nine and eight. Fox added six steals while Davis recorded four assists.

Junior Mary Jane McGlinchey created quite the stir by draining a three-pointer for her first varsity markers. She's the only female member of her notable family to hit the PC scoring column, following two brothers (Mike, Frank) and five first cousins (Matt and John Ryan, John Loughery, Pat and now-senior Jake McCain).

Wonder if Mary Jane is the first family member to notch her initial varsity points from beyond the arc? No doubt she's hoping she one-upped 'em all! (smile)

Thanks to the student rooters, above, who turned out to cheer the Quakers at SCH!
