Varsity Basketball

The Haverford School varsity basketball


The Fords basketball program is comprised of three teams: varsity, junior varsity, and freshman. The program participates in the Inter-Ac, the nation’s oldest high school athletic league. The Inter-Ac is made up of the following schools: Episcopal Academy, Germantown Academy, Malvern Prep, Penn Charter, and Springside Chestnut Hill.

The Fords also play a challenging non-conference schedule. During the 2016-17 season, the varsity team played PIAA State Champions Archbishop Wood and Imhotep. Their non-conference scheduled included Roman Catholic, Academy of the New Church, The Hun School, Shipley, St. Joseph’s Prep, and The Hill School.

Christian Ray is player of the year

By Matthew DeGeorge, Delco Times

On each wrist, Christian Ray carries a reminder of Dec. 29. On his right wrist is a tattoo of the date, the birthday of his mother, Sharon.
