Bethany, a 2018 graduate from Lewisburg High School, has been a committed 7-year veteran of Mid-Penn Motion.  At her very first practice, she was told by her coach that “hustle always gets rewarded.” She has lived by those words ever since.  Bethany has said that she not only wants to chase down loose balls on the court, she also wants to chase down opportunities in life.  When asked what role Mid-Penn Motion has played in her life she says, “Mid-Penn Motion (coaches and teammates) has not only helped me become a better basketball player, but has shaped me into the person I am today.”

Bethany was a 4-year starter at Lewisburg High School and led her team in 3-point scoring.  Throughout her high school career, she was actively involved in Magic Makers (special needs prom), Mini Thon, Key Club, & the Ronald McDonald House, while being selected as a member of the National Academy of Future Physicians.  She has committed to continue her athletic and academic career at McDaniel College and plans to major in Biology.

Mid-Penn Motion offers its congratulations to this well-deserving young lady, and wishes her the best of luck at McDaniel!
