She’s the one player who makes the best girls’ basketball team in the county go. That makes Zara Zerman the best female player in Lebanon County.
This week, Zerman continued to coax good things out of the Northern Lebanon girls’ basketball team.
On Saturday at home, Zerman showed the way to victory in the Vikings’ 44-22 non-league triumph over East Pennsboro. The multi-faceted senior guard posted 21 points, which included a pair of three-pointers and three-for-three foul shooting.
The result made Zerman and the Vikings 10-1 on the season.
That lone loss had come a night earlier, at home in overtime, 50-47 to powerful Lancaster Catholic. In that contest, Zerman struck for another 22 points, and again didn’t miss a free throw.
For the year, Zerman is averaging right around 20 points per outing and she’s coverting charity tosses at an 80 percent clip.
But Zerman’s contributions to Northern Lebanon go way beyond statistics, and can’t be overstated. She is also an unwavering leader, a fearless rebounder and a tough defender.
