Basketball Teams Advance to Championship

Penn Charter basketball proved Tuesday that seashore fun is not limited to summertime.

In the Boardwalk Basketball Classic, played at the Wildwoods Convention Center, the boys and girls carved out victories in bracket semifinals.

The girls went first, topping Downingtown East, 35-29, in a game that started at 11:15 a.m.

The boys rolled past Middle Township (NJ), 53-27, and their tilt didn't end until almost a half-day later at 10:41 p.m. (Yes, the gals were on hand to root for the guys.)

Senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis and ninth grader Kait Carter scored nine points apiece for coach Joe Maguire's team while senior Lexi Hnatkowsky added eight. Davis, Hnatkowsky and senior Julie Webb thirded 21 rebounds. An 11-4 first quarter got things started.

Coach Jim "Flipper" Phillips' squad was led by senior Adam Holland (18) and junior Mason Williams (13). Holland (eight) and senior Dylan Burnett (seven) were tops in rebounds and the former added four assists.

More photos, and stay tuned for details of today's championship games: The girls play at 1:55pm and the boys at 5pm. Go Charter!
