Boys End 2017 Winning, Girls Advance

Your Philadelphia 76ers have nothing on Penn Charter's boys basketball team.

Hey, pro guys. Get back to us when you play games on three consecutive days. In two locales, no less.

After playing Wednesday and Thursday in Wildwood, NJ, the Quakers spent part of Friday afternoon in the gym at Friends' Central. And they won, 52-46.

PC notched just three regular field goals, but sniped 9-for-18 on three-pointers and drained 19 of 23 free throws.

Senior Mason Williams shot 8-for-8 at the line en route to 19 points. Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes grabbed eight rebounds and senior Will Samuel, above, had 13 points. More photos.

The girls hoops squad played the first of two games in Wildwood, NJ, and topped Holy Spirit (not far from Atlantic City), 42-33.

Soph Kait Carter hustled for team highs in points (19) and rebounds (seven) while classmate Carmen Williams, Mason's sister, claimed the No. 2 spot in both stat categories (10, four). PC won the final quarter, 13-6.
