Woelfling Sets PSAC Record

Hannah Woelfling, the Cedar Crest Track & Field star turned Millersville Marauder, has continued her dominance in the hammer throw.  On Saturday, the senior thrower notched a mark of 200’5”, which broke the PSAC all-time record.  It was also the second-best throw in all of NCAA DII this spring season.  For her efforts, Woelfling was name the PSAC Women’s Outdoor Field Co-Athlete of the Week.



Northern Lebanon Softball Honors Veterans

The Northern Lebanon Softball Team chose to use their home game on April 5th as an opportunity to honor our nation’s veterans.  With many former and current service members living in their community, the players took the time to thank them.  After a series of patriotic pre-game activities, the Lady Vikings went on to win their game against Lancaster Catholic by a score of 5-3.



New Covenant’s College Commitments

New Covenant Girls Volleyball Team had a 14-5 record during their 2022 campaign this past Fall.  Last week, two members of that team, Renae Rohrer and Audra Foster, committed to continuing their volleyball careers in college.  Rohrer will play at Eastern University and Foster will play at Penn State – York.



The Sportsmanship Award Goes To . . .

Each season, one Lancaster Lebanon League member school is selected for the sportsmanship exhibited by the collective of their teams.  It was announced last week that the Lancaster-Lebanon League Richard Balderston Sportsmanship Award for this past Winter season was awarded to Lebanon High School.  Having a team go undefeated and still winning a sportsmanship award is not an easy task, but rather it speaks to the character of the athletes who don the red and blue.



Wards Nets 100th Goal

On Tuesday evening, Palmyra Lacrosse’s Brady Ward scored 8 goals in the team’s win over Central Dauphin.  During this most recent goal scoring frenzy, the senior attacker eclipsed the 100 career goal mark.  Ward has been a key weapon for a Cougars squad that is now 4-2 and in early contention to make the District 3 Playoffs.



Community Support Spotlight: Dance Party

One final scary fact to think about.  In the 80s, people were considering Oldies as music from the 50s.  It was thirty years between the 50s and the 80s.  It’s been 40 years since the 80s.
