Girls BKB, Squash and Boys Swimming Results

Penn Charter racked up a 1-2 record in Thursday's varsity sports events and the wait for the win extended into the evening.

The team that delivered was girls basketball, which carved out a 43-33 non-league victory at Hatboro-Horsham.

Aside from scoring 11 points, soph Carmen Williams offered five apiece of rebounds, assists and steals. Other headliners: sophs Lizzie McLaughlin (nine points) and Kait Carter (eight, 11 rebounds), junior Emma Maley (eight, four apiece of assists/steals) and frosh Kait "Katchy" Hnatkowsky (eight rebounds). 

Boys swimming and girls squash hosted Malvern Prep and SCH Academy, respectively, losing 100-73 and 6-3.

A nice moment for the swimmers was a win in the 200 freestyle relay thanks to soph Cooper Berkoff, seniors Andrew Morris/Sean McLafferty and soph Zion Weeks.

Weeks finished second in two events (100 butterfly, 200 individual medley) and Berkoff managed a pair of thirds (100 and 200 free).

Senior Reece Whitley, PC's first-magnitude star, was unavailable. He's competing in the Pro Swim Series in Austin, TX.

PC's squash winners, all juniors, were Elisabeth Ross (No. 1), Hatti Specter (No. 3) and Alexa Lenfest (No. 4).
