The Northern Lebanon girls basketball team is headed into its first-ever state tournament on a high note.

Behind Zoe Zerman's 16 points, the Vikings (26-3) knocked off York Suburban 41-33 in the District 3 Class AAA tournament fifth-place game at Warwick High School. Northern Lebanon led by 19-11 at halftime and slapped together an 11-point fourth quarter to put the Trojans (19-7) away for good.

Megan Brandt posted 11 points, one better than Liz Voight's 10. The Vikings finished 8-of-11 at the foul line and Voight canned two treys. The victory polished off a 3-1 mark in this year's district tournament for Northern Lebanon, which only fell to L-L foe Lancaster Catholic, which will vie for the district crown Friday.

Elco can't complete comeback, falls short of states

Despite a late charge, the Raiders (16-10) fell short of making the PIAA tournament with a 45-41 loss to Bishop McDevitt. Elco trailed by seven heading into the fourth quarter, when it outscored the Crusaders (19-7), but could never quite close the gap.

Senior Chandelle Keller racked up a team-high 18 points, bested only by Bishop McDevitt's Olivia Fasick and her 20. Taylor Bossert scored eight on a pair of 3-pointers and foul shots, while Ryelle Shuey added seven.

Elco led 18-17 at halftime, before netting just four points over the third quarter.
