Northern Lebanon's Zerman headed to Kutztown

Based on her skill set and her performance last season while helping the Northern Lebanon girls basketball team to its first-ever state playoff berth, it wasn't a question of if Zoe Zerman would some day play college basketball, but where.

On Sunday, that question was answered.

Zerman announced via Twitter that she will continue her academic and basketball careers at Kutztown University beginning with the 2017-18 school year.

A rising senior guard and Northern Lebanon's indispensable floor leader, Zerman led the Vikings to a memorable 2015-16 campaign that included the program's first Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three title in 30 years, a berth in the L-L title game and the aforementioned inaugural trip to states, which was highlighted by a thrilling second round triumph over arch nemesis Lancaster Catholic.

Along the way, Zerman averaged 13.8 points per game and eclipsed the career 1,000-point mark in the opening round of states against Villa Maria. For her efforts, Zerman was a third team All-State pick in Class AAA by the Pennsylvania Sportswriters, as well as a first team member of the Lebanon Daily News All-County team.

Coached by Janet Malouf, Kutztown went 10-16 last season, including a 7-15 mark in the PSAC.
