Lebanon County is in need of female officials. And in no sport is that need greater than in basketball.
Quick, when was the last time you saw a female Lebanon County native officiate a girls’ basketball game?
Well, if you’ve been to any Mid-Penn Conference games this season and paid enough attention, you might have spotted Ashley Moyer.
Moyer, a former Cedar Crest standout and Millersville University star, is now officiating girls’ basketball games in the Mid-Penn Conference on a semi-nightly basis. Moyer is a shining example of what Lebanon County needs more of – women getting involved in local scholastic athletics, especially as officials.
While Moyer appears to be doing a good job of being a ‘ref’ on the high school level, partly through her prior involvement with basketball as a student-athlete, she would one day like to officiate on the Division One college level. Moyer, 26, is currently in her third year of working scholastic girls’ games.
