penn charter basketball, inter-acIn this century, 20 teams (16 outright, four shared) have won Inter-Ac League boys basketball championships. Nineteen have won league openers.

Tuesday, visiting Penn Charter joined the important-first-result club by topping Episcopal Academy, 58-52.

The Quakers shot almost 50 percent from the floor (18-for-38) and eclipsed 90 percent at the line (16-for-17) as senior Mason Williams (21) and soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (17) led the way. Senior Will Samuel mixed nine points with two assists and three steals. Holmes pictured here driving to the basket; more photos.

A hoops sweep was completed by the girls. They also hit the road and used a 35-26 second half to earn a 56-53 win over Notre Dame.

Soph Kait Carter claimed stalwart status with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Classmate Carmen Williams (17) and junior Emma Maley (10) also scored in double figures while soph Hayley Hunt (seven) and frosh Laila Hamiter (five) helped on the boards. The leading second-half scorers were Carter, Williams (10 apiece) and Maley (seven). 

Girls squash dropped an 8-1 decision to host Episcopal, which is ranked among the Top Four teams in the nation.

Junior Elisabeth Ross, just back from the British Junior Open, posted a 3-0 win the No. 1 slot. Junior Alexa Lenfest extended her match to five games. Senior Gwen Davis/junior Mia Bezar lost in four.

Boys squash hosted Haverford School, the defending national champ, and fell by 9-0. PC's highlight was provided by eighth grader Hyun Su Wong. He was the only Quaker to extend his match to five games and came oh-so-close to winning in four. That score was 11-9.
