Over the past couple of months, we have expanded our reach as a result of readers like you taking time out of your day to take interest in what is going on within the sports scene of Lebanon County. Due to this simple fact, we are having more and more brought to our attention that we think deserves recognition, but unless you are following our Facebook page religiously, these items could easily be missed. Therefore, we’ve decided to start a new piece that we can run from time to time in order to help encapsulate some of these noteworthy items all in one place. If you have anything for us, please reach out on our social media or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In high school volleyball news, ELCO’s Taylor Stone continued to add to her legacy. Earlier this season, the senior Stone had reached the 1,000 assist milestone for her career. Earlier this week, she broke the school’s single game assist record when she had 42 assists against Lancaster Catholic. The record was previously held by Maddie Stone’s a 2019 ELCO grad and Taylor’s older sister. The younger Stone also set ELCO’s single game record for digs, as she record 38 in the 5 set match. And she also celebrated a birthday as part of her record setting week.
