There are two things that are of the utmost importance in Jamie Walborn’s life – family and basketball, in that order. For Walborn to be happy, and for her life to be complete, apparently they must include both.
Walborn was recently named the head coach of the Lebanon High girls’ basketball program. She replaces Ben Brewer, who stepped down last month at the conclusion of the Cedars’ 2015-16 campaign.
Walborn headed the Annville-Cleona girls’ program from 2009 to 2014, when the Little Dutchmen went 49-49 under guidance. She resigned following the 2013-14 season to spend more time with her husband and three small children.
But Walborn found that she missed the competition, working with player and ultimately the game itself. Prior to be named the Cedars’ head coach, Walborn worked in the Lebanon school district at Henry Houck Elementary, as a building substitute.
Her appointment as basketball coach received a unanimous vote from the Lebanon school district’s board of directors.
Brewer resigned in March to pursue other interests. Last season, while battling key injuries, the Cedars went a disappointing 5-17. The two previous years, Lebanon captured consecutive Lancaster-Lebanon Section Two championships.
