South grad LeVan headed to W.B. HOF

The all-time leading scorer for the Lycoming College women’s basketball program, Lyndy LeVan, will be one of 12 people recognized with induction into the West Branch Valley Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame at the Genetti Hotel on Sunday, Nov. 13.

LeVan will be honored along with nine other living honorees that include Maynard Aungst, Doug Buckwalter, Pat Flannery, Sherri Gurthrie-Depasqua, Scott Lynch, Ken Melchior, Richie Rodarmel and Biff Walizer. There are also two deceased inductees in Tom Poorman and Bud Stehman that will be honored.

LeVan is a South Williamsport graduate and held the school’s all-time scoring mark of 1,495 for 13 years before it was broken by Maryland’s Tierney Pfirman in 2012. The 1998 West Branch Conference MVP, she was a four-time all-conference selection. She was also a four-time all-conference selection in girls’ soccer and a 1998 all-state selection, as she scored 74 career goals.

A four-time All-Freedom Conference selection at Lycoming College, LeVan left the school with a record 1,543 career points and 13 years after the end of her career, she is still in the top five in the school’s career record book in 10 categories.
