Athlete’s of the Week are: For girls lacrosse – Emma DeBerdine. Emma has a presence on the field especially as a freshman varsity starter. She plays with heart and is extremely aggressive and competitive. She works hard at practice and on game days. Emma shows speed in the midfield and creates turnovers and picks up the ball in critical situations. She has been a difference maker for the Comets so far this season. Nice job Emma! For Baseball – Jeff Taylor. Jeff pitched a complete game 1 hitter against McCaskey in a 2-0 win, Recorded 9 strikeouts and no walks. For Boys Volleyball – Sam Greenslade – The Penn Manor boys’ volleyball team has rolled to a 7-1 start, led by the right arm of Sam Greenslade. Sam just picked up his 1,000th career kill–the first person to do so in at least 15 years. His offense has been dominant around the Section. But Sam also brings leadership to this young team as one of just two seniors. He is pushing his teammates to excellence. For Softball – Brittany Hook – Brittany is the first Penn Manor pitcher ever to throw back to back no hitters to open the season. No hitters against Warwick and Manheim Township. Great job Brittany.
