With great gifts come great responsibility. Megan Brandt possesses a lot of God-given basketball ability.
This week, Brandt continued to embrace the responsibility that comes with talent, as she and the Northern Lebanon girls’ basketball team advanced in the PIAA Class AAAA postseason.
On Thursday night at Shamokin High School, Brandt led the Vikings to a 51-25 triumph over Mifflinburg, in the second round of the state playoffs. The senior forward pumped in 15 points on six field goals and three-for-four foul shooting, and also played a key role in Northern Lebanon’s stifling defensive effort.
Brandt, who a week earlier had helped the Vikings to their first District Three championship in program history, is averaging a team-leading 13.5 points per game this season. Brandt is also Northern Lebanon’s top rebounder and an excellent help defender inside.
Also an excellent soccer player, Brandt has committed to continuing her athletic and academic careers at Division Two Bloomsburg University.
