Raven Morgan has been around, she’s seen some things. In some ways for Morgan, everything has led up to this.
It is simply the Cedar Crest senior forward’s time to apply what she has learned from those who came before her.
Recently, Morgan led the Falcon girls’ basketball team to a 3-0 week. In the process of again making Cedar Crest one of the top teams in the Lancaster-Lebanon League, Morgan has established herself as one of the circuit’s top performers.
On Friday, Morgan poured in a game-high 20 points to lead Cedar Crest to a 41-22 victory at Elizabethtown. On Wednesday, she knocked down a dozen points to help the Falcons to a 37-27 non-league triumph over Wyomissing.
Morgan has become Cedar Crest’s leading scorer and one of its top rebounders through an unrelenting motor, a deft touch around the basket and some refined talent.
It may be that this season, Cedar Crest will go as far as Morgan takes it.
