You can see it in the way she moves, in the way she runs, in the way she shoots. Alexis Hill is healthy.
And so is the Lebanon Catholic girls’ basketball team.
After having her sophomore season at Lebanon High School cut short by nagging back issues, Hill has been the Beavers’ brightest off-season addition.
This week, Hill’s brilliant play continued, as Lebanon Catholic served notice that it will be a force to be reckoned with in the Lancaster-Lebanon League with two huge wins over local rivals.
On Monday evening on Assumption Hill, the athletic Hill poured in 15 points to spearhead the Beavers’ 45-42 triumph over Northern Lebanon. Then two nights later in Myerstown, the 5-11 junior forward struck for 16 points, as Lebanon Catholic upended Elco, 62-46.
Through six games this season, Hill is leading Lebanon Catholic with a scoring average approaching 20 points per outing. The Beavers currently sport a 5-1 overall record and a 3-0 mark in Section Three of the L-L.
