Elke Staver

Ship sophomore Elke Staver, pictured during a game last season, scored a game-high 14 points in the Lady Greyhounds’ 2021 season opener at Northern Friday.


A year ago, the Shippensburg High School girls basketball team was forced to settle for a share of the Mid Penn Colonial Division title after they dropped a late season battle to the Northern Polar Bears on the road.

The Lady Greyhounds made a clear, concise statement in their return to Dillsburg for what was their season opener Friday -- they are not interested in sharing the Colonial Division title this time around. Shippensburg scored a dominant victory over last year’s league co-champs on the road, defeating the Polar Bears by a 46-29 final score.
