In a couple weeks, the Annville-Cleona girls' basketball program is going to get to do something it hasn't done in seven years.

Any guesses? How about compete in the Lancaster-Lebanon League playoffs?

A-C clinched its first L-L berth since the 2005-06 season on Tuesday night by edging Lancaster Mennonite, 49-42, in a key Section Four battle at Annville-Cleona High School.

The victory upped head coach Jaime Walborn's squad's overall record to 12-8 and its section mark to 9-5 while sewing up second place in the section and the league playoff berth that goes with it.

Elaina Wanamaker led A-C's march to the L-L tourney with a game-high 23 points, and Kayla Parks chipped in with 12 for the home team, which jumped out to a 16-11 first-quarter lead and held on from there.

Mady Reeser paced Mennonite (6-14, 4-10) with 16 points and Jada Dunsen added 13.
