It’s been said that as Cheyenne Hassler goes, so goes the Elco girls’ basketball team. And the Raiders are in the midst of a very productful and rewarding campaign.
So guess who’s having a splendid senior season?
Last week, Hassler’s play helped surprising Elco go 3-0 in Section Three of the Lancaster-Lebanon League, with road wins over Northern Lebanon and Manheim Central and a home triumph over Donegal. With a total of 46 points, Hassler led the Raiders in scoring in each of the three victories.
A deadly and streaky sniper, Hassler drained a total of eight three-point field goals during the week. With her play, Hassler, a 5-8 guard, has lived up to her recognition as a Lebanon Sports Buzz pre-season All-Lebanon County selection.
But most importantly, Hassler’s guidance and direction has the Raiders on a winning track. Elco’s 3-0 week upped its overall record to 7-4 and its Section Three mark to 7-0.
