Congratulations to Lebanon for their impressive championship over some good competition this weekend. Lebanon won their five games by an average victory margin of 37 points per game. Tourney MVP Breanna Elder was equally impressive as she averaged 23.6 ppg and shattered the single game scoring record. Congratulations to all the teams and players who put in an excellent effort this weekend. Several of these young ladies are destined for future stardom.
