He can pass. He can handle. He can defend.
But first and foremost, Peyton Wolfe can shoot. And his greatest skill is exactly what the Northern Lebanon boys’ basketball team needs most.
This week, Wolfe continued to light it up from downtown, as his Vikings went 2-2 over the course of that seven-day period.
On Saturday at Susquehannock, the junior guard drained seven three-point field goals and totaled 24 points in Northern Lebanon’s 57-52 road setback. Two days earlier, Wolfe drilled four three-pointers and tossed in 16 points in the Vikings’ 47-34 home victory over Hamburg.
On Wednesday in Fredericksburg, Wolfe had canned five ‘treys’ and popped for 24 total points in the Vikings’ 71-59 mastering of Tulpehocken. While on Monday at Lancaster Catholic, Wolfe converted a trio of three-point field goals during a 76-64 road loss to Lancaster Catholic.
For those of you keeping track at home, that’s 19 three-pointers and 73 points for Wolfe on the week. But Wolfe is also a proficient shooter at the foul line.
Despite their 2-2 week, the Vikings remain firmly in the hunt for a District Three Class AAAA playoff berth.
