Germantown Academy came into Dec. 15's matchup with The Pennington School looking to improve on it's 6-0 overall record. By night's end, the Patriots did just that by defeating the visiting team in the first game of the Make-A-Wish Tournament, 57-52.
Prior to Dec. 16's matchup with West Catholic High School, Germantown Academy boys basketball Head Coach Jim Fenerty 1760 said that the Burrs were "extremely athletic" and that his team would have to play with poise. Unfortunately, the game did not shake out that way as the Patriots turned the ball over 28 times in the 62-54 loss.
The weather outside was frigid, but Germantown Academy's offense was on fire when they hosted Academy of Palumbo on Dec. 15. Fans and students filled the Big Gym and watched the Patriots down Palumbo, 72-61.
