The Annville-Cleona girls’ basketball team hasn’t been good in awhile. As a matter of fact, the last time that the Little Dutchmen were, Brittany Nye was in elementary school.
But, now Nye is all grown up and leading an Annville-Cleona resurrection.
Recently, Nye paced the Little Dutchmen to a 2-0 week. Now at 3-1 on the early season, Annville-Cleona has matched its win total from a year ago.
On Thursday in Annville, Nye pumped in 15 points during the Little Dutchmen’s 49-27 triumph over Pequea Valley. Then a night later, the senior forward struck for a dozen points in another home victory, this one a 46-9 number over Octorara.
To this point of the season, Nye leads the Little Dutchmen in scoring and free throw shooting. Going forward, she’ll serve as a key ingredient in the Little Dutchmen’s push for a rare District Three playoff spot.
