Shoot. Score. Distribute. Defend. Lead. The Northern Lebanon girls’ basketball team asks a lot of Zara Zerman.
And whatever she is requested to do, Zerman does to the best of her ability.
Zerman, a 5-8 do-everything junior guard, has emerged as the Vikings’ go-to girl and unquestioned leader. It’s been a process for Zerman, one that she’s continued to embrace.
This week, Zerman continued to do everything in her power to lead Northern Lebanon. On Saturday, in particular, Zerman was all over the place during Northern Lebanon’s 41-33 victory at East Pennsboro.
Zerman poured in a game-high 19 points, which included a three-pointer. The result left Zerman’s Vikings 5-6 on the season.
In addition, Zerman makes her free throws at an 80 percent clip.
It remains to be seen whether or not the Vikings will get where they want to go this season. But if they do, it’ll be because Zerman showed the way.
