Both BKB Teams Advance in State Tourney
Penn Charter's basketball teams earned respectable seeds in the PAISAA Tournament and that meant a pair of first-round home games.
Friends' Central turned out to be the opponent for both and—hey, why not?—a doubleheader was played Wednesday afternoon/night in "The Doon."
The girls went first, stormed to a 15-0 lead and wound up winning, 54-41. The boys also triumphed, 63-55.
Sophs Carmen Williams (23) and Kait Carter (13) scored in double figures for the girls. Soph Hayley Hunt (10) and frosh Kait "Katchy" Hnatkowsky (eight) were the top rebounders. The former also had nine points.
For the guys, senior Mason Williams, thanks to six treys, racked up 24 of his 30 points in the first half. In all, he shot 10-for-12 from the floor and his lone floor attempt in the second half was a breakaway dunk off a pass from junior Ryan "Zingy" Maloney (nine rebounds). In another oddity, senior Will Samuel missed his only two shots in the first half yet finished with 19 points. Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes distributed six assists.
