Girls BKB Takes In College Ball

The weekend for Penn Charter's girls basketball team included much more than playing.

On Sunday morning, the Quakers were dealt a 48-38 loss by Mount St. Joseph – soph Carmen Williams earned PC's team MVP honors – in a showcase event at University of the Sciences.

They sat as a group in the third and fourth row of the lower deck, across from Temple's bench.

Wait. That's not all. Saturday, the girls attended practice at Saint Joseph's University.

Noted PC coach Joe Maguire, "A lot, if not all, of the girls have aspirations of playing a sport in college, so they got to see firsthand the commitment, effort and work that go into it whether it’s for basketball, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey. It was pretty cool to see how hard UConn works, competes, and pays attention to detail regardless of opponent and the score."
