Amelia Baldo brings a lot to the table for the Palmyra girls’ basketball. And she’s not above setting it as well.

Baldo’s all-around play has been a key to the Cougars’ early season success, which included going 4-0 this week.

The 5-7 junior guard contributed a total of 45 points, a handful of assists and stingy defense to the victories that lifted Palmyra to 6-0 on the year.

On Tuesday evening at home, Baldo netted 11 points in Palmyra’s 41-28 victory over Mechanicsburg. A night later, during a 50-18 road triumph over Hempfield, Baldo went for 15 points.

Then on  Friday night in Palmyra, Baldo recorded another 11 points, in a 33-30 win over Susquehanna Township. She rounded out her productive week with an eight-point effort at Milton Hershey on Saturday afternoon.

Last week the fiery and cerebral guard, who helps mentor future Cougars at the younger levels, was named to the all-tournament team, when the Cougars captured the championship of the Northern Lebanon Tip-Off Tournament.
