Basketball Weekend Action

After watching the junior varsity post a 63-7 victory in the first game of a basketball doubleheader Friday at Academy of the New Church, Penn Charter's varsity found it difficult to charge out of the gate with outrageous energy.

But a slow start, plus some late-game difficulties at the foul line, did not prevent the Quakers from claiming a 54-49 win.

Senior Mason Williams led the way with 20 points while junior sub Dylan Topaz (above) added 17. The latter drained three treys and went 4-for-4 at the line in the waning moments to keep ANC at arm's length. More photos.

Girls basketball traveled to Shipley for a showcase event and fell to Westtown, 47-38 on Friday. Soph Carmen Williams (Mason's brother) and classmate Kait Carter halved 26 points.

On Saturday, Day 2, PC met the host and suffered a 47-29 defeat. No Quakers reached double digits. Soph Hayley Hunt (nine) and junior Emma Maley (eight) came close.
