Plymouth Whitemarsh is aiming for its first PIAA District 1 Class 4A boys' basketball championship in nearly two decades against Chester.

"We have to appreciate that Chester is going to bring a level of energy and attitude to the game that we have to match," PW coach Jim Donofrio said.

THE TARDY ONE, the steady one, the injured one, the indomitable one and the perfect one: Those were the main characters during last night's episode of the Math, Civics and Sciences Charter show last night at Archbishop Ryan. And the Mighty Elephants could not have written a more compelling script. Without its head coach Danny Jackson, who missed the game for a family funeral, MC&S authored a 47-46 come-from-behind victory against Church Farm in Class A quarterfinal play. Junior wing Samir Doughty, as he did most of the season, paced the Pachyderms offense with 16 points, while sophomore forward Nazeer Bostick made a bevy of important plays late that added to Mike Watkins' defensive dominance and kept Lonnie Diggs' coaching record unblemished.

"Everything I am as a man I owe to my uncle," said Jackson, whose Mighty Elephants rallied late to nip the Griffins, 47-46, in a PIAA Class A state quarterfinal.
