ROUNDUP: Elco girls take down Central, 49-32
The Elco girls basketball team fell just short in its bid to deny Northern Lebanon the Section Three title on Thursday night.
But the Raiders didn't expend all their energy in that hard-fought loss, as evidenced by their effort on Friday night.
Behind a game-high 15 points from freshman forward Ryelle Shuey, Elco rebounded from the NL loss with a 49-32 win over Manheim Central in Myerstown.
Chandelle Keller added 13 points for the Raiders, who improved to 12-7 overall and 9-6 in Section Three.

Susquehanna Township 51, Palmyra 36: On Senior Night at Palmyra, the visitors ruined the party, trouncing the Cougars by 15 points.
The Cougars (10-8, 6-6 Mid-Penn Keystone) fell behind 17-3 after the first quarter and couldn't make up the difference.
Seniors Molly Gundermann, Josie Stovall and Kailey Werkheiser led Palmyra with eight points apiece.
Columbia 62, Annville-Cleona 42: In Annville, A-C was done in by the Crimson Tide's 24-point second quarter en route to the lopsided defeat.
