play Friday against Rocktop Academy in the Westtown 
Boys' Basketball Tournament.

Association State Tournament title is one of the team's goals, according to head coach Thomas Baudinet.

            "I think this group has the ability to do it if everyone buys in," he said. "We have the talent, but this group is going to have to improve in a number of areas. At the end of the year, we should be in the hunt to win it all."

            The coach is counting on two post-graduate transfers, Chris Arcidiacono and Keeshawn Kellman, to help the Panthers capture their first state title. They open an ambitious 31-game regular season at 2 p.m. Friday against Rocktop Academy in the Westtown Boys' Basketball Tournament. 

            Baudinet described Arcidiacono, a 6-foot-3 guard who graduated from Neshaminy High School earlier this year, as a great shooter who can really score. The player averaged just under 27 points per game last season and led the Redskins to a pair of victories in the PIAA Class 6A playoffs, highlighted by a 51-point performance in an 88-87 double-overtime win over Lower Merion in the second round.

            "It was a pretty sick game," said Gebhardt, a Pennsburg resident.

            Her goal midway through the first half lifted the host Huskies to a 1-0 victory East Stroudsburg University in the second round of the tournament. The sophomore midfielder worked past her defender and converted a perfect pass from Nicole Varano with a quality one-time finish, according to head coach Matthew Haney.

            "Mackenzie played well throughout the match, proving again and again that she is a solid two-way player on the flanks," Haney wrote in an email received Monday morning.

            Gebhart's fifth tally of the season, on 24 total shots, ended a seven-game scoring drought. Three of her scores have been game winners. All four of her previous tallies came during a five-game stretch between Sept. 29 and Oct. 14.

            "Overall, I'm pretty happy with how my season has gone," said Gebhardt, a 2017 graduate of Upper Perkiomen High School. "I've played some good games. I have tried to be more aggressive on offense. When I've scored, it's been ...
