Morgan Kline


Morgan Kline ended last season as the Lancaster Lebanon League Girls Bowling Champion. She has started this season, rolling the ball even better. Last week, as part of a strong 1-2 punch with Hunter Heinsey, Kline helped ELCO to two match wins over Garden Spot and Northern Lebanon. On the week, the senior’s high game was a 265, which was actually ten pins shy of her season high. For her efforts, Kline was selected as a LebCo Female Athlete of the Week.

“Morg” is a hardworking athlete who has worked to improve her game, traveling around the country to bowl in tournaments. In doing so, she has also had to overcome the long-lasting effects of a car accident that she sustained about a year ago. She recognizes that to have done what is necessary to improve her game, it has taken the dedication of her parents.

Kline hopes to use her skills to help ELCO advance further in the Lancaster Lebanon League Playoffs and maybe even further into the postseason. So far, the Raiders are carrying a 27-8 record. Individually, she hopes that she can advance to States before heading off to start her college career. She already knows where that will be, as she recently committed to continuing her bowling career at Wichita State, a program that is ten-time NCAA National Champion and a favorite of Ted Lasso.

She is self-proclaimed as “very competitive” but also “fun” and “kind.” After college, Kline hopes to use that competitive nature to compete on the professional tour.

Kline will get a chance to take another step towards her goal of bowling professionally when she attends the Team USA Trials next week in Las Vegas.

We wish Morgan the best of luck in reaching all of her goals and look forward to seeing how much she can improve upon last year’s results.




Mya Doster

Already having eclipsed their win total from last season, the Palmyra Girls Basketball team got off to a 6-0 start to begin the’ 23-’24 campaign. One of the players who has become a main contributor to this effort is sophomore Mya Doster. In two games during the week of December 11th, the 5’11” forward scored 23 points and grabbed 30 rebounds in wins over Hershey and Mifflin County. For her efforts, she was chosen as a LebCo Female Player of the Week.

Before Friday night’s game against Cedar Crest, Doster averaged 9 points per game on 53% shooting. She has 75 rebounds (12.5 rpg), with 29 of them being on the offensive end. Doster has also added nine blocks and 11 steals as she has proven to be the backbone of the Lady Cougar defense, making it very difficult on their opponents. To quantify the level of defense that Palmyra has produced this season, consider that they won their six games by an average of 21 points.

When asked about Doster’s role on the team, Palmyra Coach John Polly said, “As the season moves along, I see her scoring increasing, making her a double-double threat every time she takes the floor. We know she can score, since she did post a 39 point outing last January in a JV game at Mechanicsburg.”

He went on to say, “Mya is just a sophomore, so the sky is the limit as she gets more and more comfortable in the offense each day.”

When asked about her role, Doster seemingly knows her role and how she can help her team win, stating: “This season, I hope that I can work towards being a more confident player. I want to be able to be a leader on the floor as well as be able to pick my teammates up whenever I can.”

She also indicated that she would not back down from any assignment: “I am able to execute whatever my coach needs to be done in order to succeed in that game. I am motivated to push through whatever challenges the game may bring to us, and I am dedicated to being a team player.”

Doster is no stranger to being around driven athletes, having grown up with parents who both excelled in sports. Her mother, April Doster, was a 1,000 point scorer in high school before playing collegiately at Kings College. Her father, Rubin Doster, was a Division III Football All-American Defensive Tackle during his time at Kings.

In terms of family, Doster is also not a stranger to having to get along with large groups, as she is one of nine children.

She reflected on how her family has driven her to succeed, saying: “They always pushing me to do my best. They have taught me the importance of working hard and wanting to be the best in the gym. Not only that, but they have provided me with many opportunities, allowing me to grow as a player.”

Someday, Doster hopes she can join her mother in the 1,000 point club and find an opportunity to play at the collegiate level. She would like to pursue a career in the medical field.

Doster knows the importance of working hard every day, and in every game, it is necessary to reach her long-term goals. We wish her the best of luck this season, as her hard work will continue to help win games for Palmyra.
