The Week Before Christmas
It is the week before Christmas and the classrooms are quiet but not the gyms. While school is on winter break, our teams are active and PC athletes are in the news. After a 1 and 1 record in GA's Make A Wish Tournament, boys basketball defeated Archbishop Ryan 43 - 41. Twelfth grader Mike Brown knocked down a 3 pointer as time expired for a dramatic finish against this strong Catholoic League team. Girls basketball is on a roll . After two victories in the Make A Wish Tournament and a strong league win against Notre Dame Academy on Tuesday the Quakers defeated Neumann-Goretti 57-48 yesterday. Brianna Butler was the leading scorer in both games with 18 and 21 points respectively. The girls are ranked Number 6 in The Inquirer Top Ten Rankings.
Last weekend Penn Charter Wrestling took on the powers of the Suburban One League at the Abington Duals. The Quakers came out strong finishing 3rd in their pool. Respectively, Penn Charter finished 8th overall in a field of twelve teams, earning them the Sportsmanship Award for their competitive effort while fielding the smallest roster of all the competing teams. Going undefeated in the day were Eric Berger (145) with a 5-0 record and Tyler Mercer (HWT) also 5-0. Penn Charter hosted Central at home on Tuesday without several key wrestlers who were out due to illness. This caused them to forfeit at several weights which contributed to the 38-34 defeat.
In football news, 12th grader John Loughery was named to the second team All State in football. This is outstanding recognition for John who is a three sport athlete at PC.
