Lebanon Season Ends

Yes, the season ended last night for the Lebanon Cedars girls’ basketball team.

They lost 57-43, to District 7’s Norwin in the second round of the PIAA Class 6A tournament.

They end the season with a 27-3 record.

Lebanon held a one-point lead after the first quarter, but Norwin outscored the Cedars in the final three frames. Fouls played a role. Norwin went to the line 33 times, making 22 of the shots. Lebanon only shot 4-of-7, and four Lebanon players fouled out of the game.

Olive Brandt led the team with 14 points, and Kailah Correa added 13.

Lebanon’s future looks bright, as the team will only lose senior Aaliyah Ferrer from the starting lineup. The Cedars went on a 24-game winning streak this season before suffering their first loss against Columbia in the LL League title game.

The Cedars exciting season ends with 27 wins, a Section One championship in the Lancaster-Lebanon League, a trip to the league finale, a fifth-place finish in the District 3 tournament and a PIAA first-round victory.
