Boys BKB and Wrestling Weekend Results
Though letdowns are never acceptable, one might have been expected for Penn Charter's boys basketball team.
Friday night before a large, energetic crowd, the Quakers topped visiting SCH Academy as senior Mason Williams raised his career point total to 1,009.
Saturday, in front of almost no one (medium exaggeration), PC hosted Central and managed to mostly stay focused en route to a 64-48 triumph.
Williams offered 22 points and four steals while senior Will Samuel collected 15 points and three blocks. For the third time recently, a JV player also dressed for the varsity game and this guy, junior Jayce Dyer, had two points.
The wrestlers traveled to Great Valley and racked up a 1-2 record in an invitational dual meet.
Church Farm was the victim by 48-27. Losses were suffered against GV, 36-33, and Cherry Hill West (NJ), 51-18.
"That match was much closer than the score indicated," coach Pete Shaifer noted. "Two wrestlers were winning when they got caught and pinned. Those two matches were at least an 18-point swing."
Freshman Max Lentz, senior Alex Koenig and soph Jess Anderson rolled to 3-0 records. Junior TJ Henry went 2-0 before having to step aside due to a shoulder ding. Soph Matt McGlinchey and juniors Wayne Derkotch/Sam Shemtov went 2-1.
