Hoops, Girls Squash Teams Begin Winning Winters

Because Williams is a common surname, you can't assume a guy and gal are brother and sister.

But Penn Charter's respective basketball squads DO feature siblings in Mason and Carmen Williams and Tuesday they fueled opening day victories.

Mason, a senior, drilled four treys en route to 22 points as the boys bested visiting Germantown Friends, 58-32. Then it was Carmen's turn. In the second game of a Dooney Field House doubleheader, the soph (pictured at right) totaled 15 points, five rebounds and four assists in a 57-40 triumph over Friends' Central.

Meanwhile, remember the Hnatkowsky brother-sister hoops duo (Mike "Neeko"/Lexi) from last year? Their sister, a ninth grader named Kait, added 10 points.

For the boys, soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes had 12 points and three assists while junior sub Brendan Thomas hustled for four steals.

Other contributors for the girls: Soph Kait Carter had nine points, five boards and three assists; junior Emma Maley had three assists and five steals; and soph Hayley Hunt mixed eight points with five boards.

Girls squash needed to wait until nighttime to open its season and the result was a 6-3 win over Conestoga.

The score was 2-2 through the first four matches with PC's wins going to junior Mia Bezar and senior Meredith Bernstein by 3-0 scores. The Quakers then roared to 4-1 domination thanks to junior Alexa Lenfest and senior Elisabeth Ross by 3-0 and seniors Chloe Master/Charlotte Murray by 3-1.
