Basketball Takes One of Two

Similar games of varsity basketball were played Tuesday in the Dooney Field House and Penn Charter came away with a split.

In game No. 2, the girls used a 17-2 fourth quarter avalanche to wind up with a 53-32 win over Olney. The boys experienced the flip side in a 70-50 loss to Shipley as the Gators won the fourth quarter, 24-12, and closed things out with a 22-7 run.

Seven players scored for the girls and all produced six to 11 points. The leaders were senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (11), freshman Kait Carter (nine), classmate Carmen Williams and senior Lexi Hnatkowsky (eight apiece). Senior Julie Webb, pictured here snuffing a shot attempt, bounced for six rebounds and three blocks. 

Senior Adam Holland (13), frosh Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (11) and junior Mason Williams (10, he's Carmen's brother) reached double digits for the boys. Junior Will Samuel swept 11 rebounds, the most by a boy Quaker in the last two seasons.
