Boys BBall Champs at Wildwood!

Time to make room for more hardware!

Wednesday, in the championship game of the Chickie Ludman Memorial Bracket in the Boardwalk Basketball Classic, held in the Wildwoods Convention Center, Penn Charter hustled its way to a 55-43 victory over Cherokee (NJ).

In the second half, the Chiefs twice edged within one point. But the Quakers never lost the lead and all was comfortable by the stretch run.

Junior Mason Williams (19) and frosh Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (11) led the point parade while seniors Dylan Burnett and Justus Sanders evenly split 14 rebounds. The other starter, senior Adam Holland, handed out five assists.

Oddly, Cherokee did not score a two-point field goal until 25 seconds beyond halftime.

Earlier in the afternoon, on the other side of the massive building, the girls fell to Archbishop Ryan, 45-37, in the championship game of the John Carlson Memorial Bracket.

Oddly, part two: This was the teams' third meeting this season.

Frosh Kait Carter (16) and senior Mireyah "Rey" Davis led PC in scoring and the latter claimed 11 rebounds 

The Quakers' hopes for an upset victory were dashed by a 19-8 deficit in the fourth quarter.
