2024 LebCo All-County Girls Basketball Team


The LebCo All-County Basketball Team is proudly sponsored by our friends at TJT Sports.


The 2023-2024 Girls Basketball season was a cumulative success for LebCo’s eight teams. The combined record of 120-70 resulted in six teams qualifying for the District 3 Playoffs, with Lebanon, Northern Lebanon, and Palmyra moving on to the PIAA State Championship Tournament.

Naturally, this resulted in several standout performances from the wealth of talent that don the uniforms of our local schools. The process of ranking players to name a LebCo All-County Team as not an easy one. This is why we turned to the fans and the coaches for advice on who should be selected. Below is the result of that input.

Among the top picks was Lebanon’s Kailah Correa, who was selected as the LebCo Girls Basketball Player of the Year for the second straight season. Correa will return for her senior season for the 2024-2025. With only five players listed below having graduated, next season should again be a success for our LebCo teams. In fact, with seven rising juniors and a rising sophomore making the list for their elite performances this past season, the future looks to be very bright for the next several years.

We wish all our LebCo athletes the best in their off-season training and look forward to what they have in store for next Winter.

One thing to note is that each list is ordered by Class and then by Alphabet, with the only exception being the Player of the Year.

First Team All-County

Kailah Correa (Lebanon, Jr.) – LebCo Player of the Year

Topping the list of vote-getters was Correa, who repeats as the LebCo Girls Basketball Player of the Year after constructing a wildly successful 2023-2024 campaign during which the junior led the Cedars to their third straight Lancaster Lebanon League Section crown and was named the LL Section 1 MVP. On the season, the Cedars went 24-5, with Correa averaging 19.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 2.1 steals per game. She shot 47% from the field, often using her impressive ball-handling skills to leave defenders wondering what had just happened as she drove by them. She was also lethal from long-range, as she pocketed 35% of her three-point attempts to successfully convert 41 times. Correa was solid from the free throw line, shooting 74% (63-85) after drawing many fouls, as her aggressive play often drew contact. Beyond her own point totals, one of her most significant attributes has been her ability to set her teammates up for opportunities to score, which has translated into many games when she is not the leading scorer for the Cedars.

That said, as Correa looks ahead to her senior season, she is on pace to become just the 10th female basketball player in the history of the Lancaster Lebanon League to achieve 2,000 career points.


Zariyah Whigham (Lebanon, Sr.)

Whigham was a key piece of Lebanon’s last two runs into the PIAA State Playoffs, as the senior used her athleticism to excel on the court. Her most prominent attribute was her ability to rebound, as she totaled 175 boards (9.1 per game) for the season, 88 of which were on the offensive end. Defensively, Whigham was also a force in the paint, as she totaled 38 blocks in 29 games for the Cedars. Aiding Lebanon’s offense, Whigham also contributed 8.5 points per game. She also averaged 1.2 assists and 1.4 steals. For her efforts, she was named a LL Section 1 Second Team All-Star and selected as a Section 1 Defensive All-Star. In addition to a successful high school basketball career, Whigham was a state medalist in the Triple Jump and is now headed to Shippensburg to continue her academic studies and Track & Field career.


Olivia Shutter (Northern Lebanon, Jr.)

Northern Lebanon was tough all year as they compiled a record of 19-8 and made it all the way into the PIAA State Girls Basketball Championship Tournament. Shutter was a major piece of their winning formula, as she averaged 13.6 points per game. On many occasions, the junior’s hot three-point shooting turned the tide late in games as the Lady Vikings rallied to win. For the season, she tallied 44 three-pointers. Shutter was also a major reason that Northern Lebanon was tough on the defensive end, often limiting the ability of other teams to score. At the conclusion of the season, Shutter was named a Lancaster Lebanon League Section 3 First Team All-Star.


Olive Brandt (Lebanon, So.)

While only a sophomore, Brandt became a key weapon that Lebanon was able to use on their way to winning the Lancaster Lebanon League Section 1 Championship. She finished the season as the team’s second-leading scorer, averaging 11.5 points per game. Many of her points came from the free throw line, where she was the clutch that successfully converted 83% of her opportunities (115-138). In addition to her point totals, Brandt also averaged 3.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.9 steals in 28 games (missed one due to a concussion). She was named a Lancaster Lebanon League Section 1 First Team All-Star.


Addi Salus (Palmyra, So.)

The Palmyra Lady Cougars had an amazing turnaround, as they went from a five-win team to finishing this season with an 18-9 record and an appearance in the PIAA State Championship Tournament. A large part of the quick turnaround was the solid play of the sophomore Salus, who led Palmyra with 12.6 points per game. On average, Salus grabbed 4.0 rebounds, along with recording 1.1 blocks and 1.7 steals per game. She hit 23 three-pointers and was 72% on free throws (51-71). Gaining the admiration of opposing coaches, Salus was named as a Mid Penn Keystone First Team All-Star.





Second Team All-County

Keely Bowers (Palmyra, Sr.)

Riley Hatzfeld (Our Lady of the Cross, Jr.)

As Our Lady of the Cross spent their first season in the PIAA, it was Hatzfeld who was the offensive engine that helped them qualify for Districts. The junior averaged 34.3 points, many of which were scored courtesy of her 61 three-pointers. She also shot 81% from the foul line. Many of her points came while being double-teamed, but that did not slow her down, especially as she scored 50 points in a game against Lehigh Valley Charter. To further help the Lions win as a team, she added 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 steals per game.


Liliana Harrison (Lebanon, Jr.)

Harrison created balance for the Cedars, who had another successful season that ended in the State Playoffs. The junior forward averaged 9.0 points and 8.0 rebounds. She was also a terror when it came to the opposing team trying to score inside the paint, tallying 59 blocks during the season. She was named a Lancaster Lebanon League Section 1 Second Team All-Star.


Mya Doster (Palmyra, So.)

It is safe to say that Doster was willing to do a lot of the nitty-gritty type of work that helped the Lady Cougars to a very successful turnaround. Not only did the sophomore play extremely tough defense that resulted in 54 blocks and 39 steals in 26 games, but she averaged 9.4 rebounds per game as well. Her 255 rebounds led Palmyra. A well-rounded player, Doster also added 8.7 points and 1.9 assists per game. She was named a Mid Penn Keystone Second Team All-Star.

Sheroky was named as a Lancaster Lebanon League Section 3 All-Star.


Qynne Demler (New Covenant, Fr.)

Demler was the only freshman to pick up a nomination, and it was for good reason. In her first season playing at the varsity level for New Covenant, Demler averaged 22.4 points on her way to setting the school’s single-season scoring record with 515 points. Her single-game season high was a 42 point performance against Covenant Christian. This offensive prowess helped the Flames to a spot in the District 3 Playoffs.
