Basketball Begins Season with Two Wins
Yes, overall, the non-stop rain and forever-dark skies made for quite the dreary Tuesday.
But on the sunshiney side . . . Penn Charter's varsity basketball teams opened their seasons and posted victories.
The boys headed the short distance down School House Lane to Germantown Friends and claimed a 45-35 win. The girls made the journey to Friends' Central and rolled to a 48-27 triumph.
Junior Mason Williams (17) and senior Adam Holland (13) paced the boys in scoring. (Adam takes it to the hoop at left. More photos.)
The Quakers took control in the second quarter, posting a 19-10 advantage thanks in part to five three-pointers. Senior Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky dished four of his five assists in that session.
Meanwhile, Neeko's senior sister, Lexi, paced the girls with 16 points. She added five rebounds and three assists. Seniors Mireyah "Rey" Davis (nine) and Julie Webb (eight) came close to double figures in scoring and the former seized 10 rebounds. Soph Emma Maley and freshman Kait Carter halved eight assists.
The Quakers roared to the game's first 19 points.
