As a player, sophomore Liz Voight has really come into her own this season. And as a member of the Northern Lebanon girls’ basketball team, Voight’s evolution has really helped the Vikings become the team they could be.
Through her shooting and relentless style of play, Voight has turned into a much needed third scoring option for Northern Lebanon. This week, Voight may have enjoyed the best three game stretch of her career, helping the Vikings reach their first ever Lancaster-Lebanon League championship game.
On Monday at home, Voight canned 13 points, as the Vikes nudged Manheim Township 47-41 in their L-L quarterfinal meeting. On Wednesday at Lebanon High School, Voight tallied another 13 points during Northern Lebanon’s 40-21 semifinal demolition of Lebanon Catholic.
Then on Friday at Warwick High School, during the title tilt against Lancaster Catholic, the tenth-grade sniper tossed in eight points. For the week, Voight drained a total of five three-point field goals.
It should be interesting to follow Voight’s progression as Northern Lebanon attempts to make its mark in the upcoming District Three Class AAA postseason, and tries to qualify for the PIAA tournament.
