Peters Leads Plymouth To Victory

Plymouth Whitemarsh point guard Bermuda National team player Caelin Peters spent the entire offseason working out — eight months healthy and in the gym every day.

Then, on the first day of the season, he collided with a teammate and injured his right thumb. The lefty is wearing a protective wrapping and, after a couple losses to start the season against Lincoln and Simon Gratz, feels like he is starting to get used to it.

Peters led the Colonials to their first win of the season, a 77-49 Suburban One League American Conference victory over rival Wissahickon, at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.

The senior scored a game-high 28 points, grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds and dished out a game-high five assists.

“After talking to my coaches, coach D and my father,” Peters said, “we just realized that, especially with the thumb thing going on, I was focusing too much on it. I just have to relax and play the game that I love to play. That’s the mindset I had tonight.

“With the thumb thing I wasn’t going right as much (in the first two games). You can’t think about it. You have to just go out there and play your game. That’s what I’m trying to do more in practice — go right more, continue to play how I was playing before the season started. The confidence is on the way back up. I’m not expecting to have any more bad games like that in the future.”

Peters made an impact from the jump, he had eight points, six rebounds and two assists in the first quarter to help PW build a 21-9 lead that wouldn’t be threatened the rest of the game.

He showed off a full arsenal of offensive skills. He hit five three-pointers — a few catch-and-shoot, a pull-up and a step-back — and finished in a variety of ways at the rim, including an emphatic slam in the fourth quarter to put the exclamation point on the SOL American opener.

On the defensive end, Peters used his energy and 6-foot-2 frame to harass Wissahickon ball-handlers all night. Wissahickon turned the ball over 20 times.

Peters is the most experienced player on the Plymouth Whitemarsh roster after being a starter his entire junior year. He was supposed to share the point guard responsibilities with Anthony Straface, but when the 2019 graduate was in and out of the lineup due to injuries, Peters shouldered all the responsibilities. That helped prepare him for being the team’s leader as a senior.

“I’m just making sure as a team we’re working hard every day,” Peters said. “We have a really great group of guys. Everyone likes to listen. When we mess up we have each other’s back. We’re always trying to be positive — maybe too positive sometimes, need to clamp down on the mistakes. We always listen to coach and try to get the guys to be together and I think we’ve done that in the early going. We’re together and we’re definitely going to stay together. There’s no team conflict or anything. Everybody loves each other and we’re going to continue to get better.”

Peters & Plymouth Whitemarsh Fall in Opener

Caelin Peters and his Plymouth Whitemarsh Men’s Basketball teammates lost their season opener 63 - 55, against Abraham Lincoln at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.

Plymouth struggled with shooting and turnovers throughout the game, the 25 turnovers were a product of a young, new-look team playing its first game together and put the loss on a poor performance from the field.

Plymouth Whitemarsh senior captain Peters fouled out in the middle of the fourth quarter.

Peters, who is the only returning player with significant varsity experience, finished the game with six points, three assists, two rebounds and a block.

Peters, who played with a wrap around his right hand and wrist, was in foul trouble for most of the night after picking up two in the first quarter.
