Delaware-Bound Star Helps Put West Chester East Basketball on the Map


West Chester East’s Andrew Carr went from being a high school freshman who did not play a single varsity minute to a senior star who has helped put the school on Southeastern Pennsylvania’s basketball map, writes Phil Anastasia for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

In 2016-17, the school’s record was 3-18. This season, it’s 26-2. These numbers are the best indicator of both the progress of West Chester East basketball, and the growth of the 6-foot-10 Carr.

Last weekend, Carr helped lead the Vikings to the District One Class 5A championship with a thrashing of Penn Wood.

“It means the world,” Carr said. “I never thought I could make such an impact on the team and the program. It’s a surreal feeling.”

The promising player will now continue his basketball career at the University of Delaware, where his father and uncle once competed.

Carr was drawn to the Blue Hens because of their highly regarded exercise science program and the strong relationship he developed with coach Martin Ingelsby, a Berwyn native, and assistant coach Bill Phillips.

“It was just the best fit possible for me,” said Carr.
