PC Wraps Up the Season

Time to break out the bats, sticks, batons, etc.

Saturday, in the quarterfinal round of the Pennsylvania independent schools' tournament, the girls and boys basketball squads suffered tough-to-swallow, season-ending losses.

The girls, after receiving a first-round bye as the No. 2 seed, stormed to a 17-4 lead against visiting Abington Friends, but then scored just two points over the next 9 minutes, 40 seconds and wound up with a 43-36 loss. Senior Ayanna Matthews (12) and junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (10) reached double figures in points.

The girls squad finished the season 17-10, 8-4 in the Inter-Ac.

Senior guard Hannah Fox, who finished her career with 1,813 points, was honored before the game (above) by for athletic and academic accomplishments. Hannah will play next year for Amherst College.

The boys traveled to Hill School, in Pottstown, and faced a team with frontcourters standing 7-1 and 6-8. Nothing went right from the start and the end result was 59-37.

Junior Alex Slook made his varsity debut and scored on a put-back with 2:18 remaining.

Seniors Harrison Williams, Jake McCain, Evan Ferrell and Michael Berk were given the chance to play one last time together for just short of two minutes early in the fourth quarter. Then, they watched the rest of the game with classmate Sean Foley (injured all season) while sitting together at the end of the bench.

At 13-10, the 2015-16 squad posted the boys' third winning record over the last 10 seasons.
