Girls Capture Champs of BKB Tourney

The members of Penn Charter's girls basketball team must have been fans of the football squad.

The gridders, despite returning just four starters, posted PC's first nine-win season since 1905. Now, the hoops gals, also very short on experience, are feeling great about the fact they claimed the championship in the first Enable Sports & Fitness Tournament.

That crown was captured Saturday with a 52-46 win over Westtown.

Soph Carmen Williams poured in 21 points while classmate Kait Carter (nine) and frosh Kait Hnatkowsky (eight) came close to reaching double figures. The Quakers earned a 58-56 lead with just over a minute remaining when Carter converted a drive down the lane. Williams and Carter then added two free throws apiece.

The boys also competed in the final, losing by 74-61 to St. Joseph's Prep.
Senior Mason Williams (Carmen's brother) had 24 points. Oddly, the Quakers faded after soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes hammered home a dunk to create a 35-35 tie.

Wrestling made its season debut in a showcase event at Upper Merion and senior Alex Koenig was the headliner. He dominated the 160-pound weight class, winning all three of his matches in comfortable fashion.

Senior Luke Mattice and junior TJ Henry finished third while senior Dante DiStefano was fourth. Senior Jordan Steinhouse and soph Matt McGlinchey were one match from placing.
